Harare City Council is being affected by fuel shortages which have resulted in the local authority failing to provide essential services.
The local authority has since notified residents that it will not be able to collect refuse in some suburbs due to fuel shortages. In a Facebook post Harare City Council said:
Due to the prevailing fuel shortages on the market, we are unable to do our scheduled garbage collections. Today 16 garbage trucks were deployed. They have since exhausted their daily allocations. Efforts are being made to secure fuel. Once we are able to access fuel we will deploy the vehicles to their daily duties. We regret any inconveniences that may arise as a result of non collection.
