Mukuvisi River which stood Harare’s waterway pride since the Rhodesian days has become an eyesore and unmitigated dumping pound by city’s businesses in broad day while the capital’s authorities look the other way, perhaps busy chasing vendors and clamping motorists.
The Council is reeling under controversy after recently investing heavily on clampers gear, trucks to run after vendors and more street patrollers recruitment.
One vendor arrested yields to the council at least RTGS20.00 in fine while a clamped motorist will have to part with at leats RTGS57.00. So lucrative is such business that the Town Clerk’s department has not bothered on street litters to the point waste skips are now being openly tipped into the waterway without bother of consequency.
The City of Harare has run on the mantra of “Achieving World Class Status by 2030” will the dream be a reality? Post your comments with #COHFilth2030 on Twitter and Facebook.
