Harare City Council (HCC) is establishing a new cemetery at Eyestone Farm.
Minutes of the HCC’s Community Service Committee Meeting reveal progress made so far. Part of the minutes reads:
A Memorandum of Agreement had been drafted and validation of the Memorandum of Agreement draft by the legal division had been completed. The draft had now been sent to the ministry of Finance and Economic Development for further validation and clearance and a meeting was held.
The local government has already reserved the remaining 7.2 hectares of the Warren Hills Cemetery for expansion of the Provincial Heroes Cemetery only. That meant the cemetery was no longer available for public burials.
The Eyestone Farm cemetery comes at a time when the council is also opening up new burial spaces at Granville Cemetery or Kumbudzi and other sites.
