Harare Racks In $1,5 Million From Vendors

Harare City Council collected $1,5 million from vendors in 2018. The figure was, however, lower than the Council’s projected income.

This was revealed during a full council meeting held recently. Part of minutes from the full Council meeting read as follows:

Revenue collection had declined by 23,39% during the year under review compared to the previous year.

The decline in revenue collection was attributed to the following challenges: inadequate funding for informal sector projects, political interference in the allocation of market stalls to vendors and revenue collection and economic hardship, resulting in traders failing to pay market fees to Council.

Meanwhile, the Council launched a blitz targetting illegal vendors and tuckshop owners in various high-density suburbs.

The joint operations had been engaged to assist Harare municipal police in the enforcement programmes and engagement of political parties to encourage vendors to pay market fees directly to council and not through middlemen.
