Illegal structure demolitions continue

Precious |  11 months ago | local

Harare City Council will continue demolishing illegal structures around the city under an exercise meant to bring sanity to the capital.

Council on Saturday razed stalls belonging to informal traders in Mbare.

Illegal structures around Mupedzanhamo, Magaba Home Industry, Shawasha and Matapi Flats were all demolished with the demolitions set to continue today (Sunday).

Council spokesperson Mr Michael Chideme said traders should relocate to designated areas.

Most traders ignored warnings from city authorities to dismantle their structures last week and were left counting their losses.

Police officers deployed to maintain order observed from a distance. Some rogue elements took advantage of the melee to loot wares that included used car parts, second-hand clothes and furniture.
