Harare City Council has no by-laws which criminalise touting – Minister


Deputy Minister of Home Affairs Obedingwa Mguni last week told the Senate that Harare and the other towns did not have any municipal by-laws to make it easy to stop touting. This comes after a Harare man, Mathias Gore, died near Road Port Bus Terminus after he was allegedly harassed and jostled by touts as he tried to board a Mutare bound bus.

Mguni told the Senate:

The towns have not brought up these by-laws which would lead to the stopping of touts.

For example, the Harare City Council does not have a law that would stop the functioning of the touts. If there is such a law, we will use it to arrest them.

Police are looking for the men responsible for Gore’s death. So far only one suspect has been caught.
