Zanu PF seethes over Harare chaotic parking system


The ruling Zanu PF party has condemned the opposition-led Harare City Council for the chaotic parking system that has been widely criticised by residents and led to skirmishes in the city centre.

Harare has been turned into a warzone with running battles between motorists and marshals from the newly established City Parking firm.

Complaints have been raised in the recent past forcing the government to institute a probe into how the company and City of Harare are operating and also the shareholding structure of the firm.

Several motorists have also threatened to sue the local authority.

Zanu PF secretary for Local Government and Devolution Supa Mandiwanzira says the current situation is deplorable and the council was being pushed by greed which is affecting the motoring public.

“We are very concerned with the way motorists in Harare and elsewhere are being treated by city fathers, particularly the parking marshals,” Mandiwanzira said.

He added: “The people are being abused and there have been skirmishes between citizens and marshals. This is not the way to treat the people.”

“I call the Mayor and his CCC officials to make sure people are not harassed. My message to the city fathers is ityai Mwari, musada mari.”
