President Mugabe has deplored the vendor menace and lack of order in the Harare central business district (CBD), saying Harare should be the smartest city in the country as the capital.
He said vendors operating in and around the capital should be moved to designated points to allow for the free flow of human and vehicular traffic in the CBD. Addressing members of the ZANU-PF Youth League national assembly from the country’s 10 provinces at the party’s headquarters in Harare on Saturday, the Head of State and Government, who is also ZANU-PF President and First Secretary, said the capital city must be the smartest of all the country’s towns. He said he had already engaged Home Affairs Minister Ignatius Chombo and Local Government, Public Works and National Housing Minister Saviour Kasukuwere over the bad state of the capital. (Herald)
