HARARE – Harare City Council is engaging the Zimbabwe Republic Police to
boot out Zanu PF youths who have invaded its markets and are illegally
According to environmental committee minutes: “There is need for council
to carry out enforcement on all illegal markets starting from the Central
Business District moving to all other areas in greater Harare. There were
reports of youths from certain political parties controlling these illegal
markets and collecting rentals.”
Acting chamber secretary Charles Kandemiiri said he would engage the
commissioner-general of the police Godwin Matanga.
The police gunned down two people and injured four others during an
operation to remove vendors and kombis from the CBD last month.
Matanga apologised for killings and claimed police shot the duo in self
defence after an angry mob violently advanced towards them.
