Local Government minister Saviour Kasukuwere has said the Gulf Sunshine Bazaar shopping complex constructed along Simon Mazorodze Road in Mbare must be demolished after it caused flooding.
Affected residents had threatened to sue the Harare City Council (HCC) and demand compensation. Residents along Mbirimi, Mwamuka and Chinamhora streets had thousands of dollars’ worth of property destroyed after the flooding during the just-ended festive period.
The market shells along Simon Mazorodze have disturbed the residents. The water that usually flowed freely is now backwashing into their homes. That complex should be removed if it does not meet the Environmental Management Agency approval.
