Harare City Council Losing $2 Million Due To Kombis, Vendors

According to Harare City Council’s parking unit, City Parking’s half-year review report to July 2018, the taxis and kombis are occupying 784 parking bays, depriving the firm of $94 080 monthly.

Some Government institutions allegedly commandeered some parking bays for free over and above their authorised and allocated bays, which was also costing the city $84 960. The report also said City Park is losing $488 560 monthly due to vendors. Part of the report reads:

There is an increase in the number of people vending on the streets and some are operating from some parking bays. This has deprived the company of potential revenue from the occupied bays. An average of 738 bays has been taken by the vendors with an average loss amounting to $488 560 monthly. Touts/vagrants that compete with revenue collection marshals on the streets are increasing by day and mostly affecting smooth flow of operations. About 412 parking bays have been lost to this group with average revenue loss of $49 440 monthly.
