The City of Harare demolished illegal tuckshops in Mbare and Chitungwiza today. Eyewitnesses say they saw some structures near the ZUPCO offices in Mbare being demolished. Other eyewitnesses also saw structures at the C-Junction in Chitungwiza being demolished.
The officers destroying the tuckshops said the owners of the structures do not pay rates.
Yesterday, City of Harare posted on Twitter warning that owners of the tuckshops needed to dismantle them urgently:
All illegal tuckshop owners in Mbare are advised to urgently remove their structures before dawn tomorrow. Vendors are urged to relocate to designated trading sites. Illegal activities are blocking roads, walkways and entrances into rate paying businesses.
