ZANU PF has condemned the CCC-dominated Harare City Council over the manner in which City Parking has been enforcing traffic by-laws in Harare’s central business district which has resulted in chaos and inconveniences to motorists.
Some motorists have threatened to sue the local authority after clashing with City Parking marshals.
ZANU PF secretary for Local Government and Devolution Supa Mandiwanzira urged Harare City Council to ensure that its marshals treat people with dignity. Business Times quoted Mandiwanzira as saying:
We are very concerned with the way motorists in Harare and elsewhere are being treated by city fathers, particularly the parking marshals.
The people are being abused and there have been skirmishes between citizens and marshals. This is not the way to treat people.
I call the Mayor and his CCC officials to make sure people are not harassed. My message to the city fathers is ityai Mwari, musada mari.
Local Government, Public Works and National Housing Minister July Moyo has since appointed a team to investigate City Parking’s operations.
