Pauline Chateuka

On the 1st of June 2021 Chitungwiza Municipality issued a statement informing residents of demolitions and giving them a 72 hour ultimatum to remove their structures on road servitudes. These demolitions started on Monday 10 June leaving residents and vendors devastated.

Chitungwiza Residents Trust has expressed displeasure at the demolitions which they have termed illegal.

“Chitungwiza Municipality together with Zimbabwe Republic Police have started demolishing informal trader’s workshops and vending stalls in Chitungwiza. These demolitions are illegal because they are not supported by a court order as required by law. This illegality must not be allowed to continue” said Diana Kuvheya CHITREST director.

Vendors’ wares left in the open after demolitions in Chitungwiza.
