Harare Now a Jungle, Says VP Mohadi
Vice President Kembo Mohadi yesterday said there is an urgent need for Government intervention in restoring order in Harare, saying the capital city was now a jungle not worth its status.
Illegal vending, pirate taxis, touting and other vices are the order of the day in the city, once referred to as the Sunshine City.
Addressing a stakeholders’ consultative meeting in Harare, VP Mohadi said there was need to upgrade dilapidated infrastructure in the central business district (CBD).
“Harare has become a menace with disorderly vendors, pirate taxis and more importantly dilapidated infrastructure,” he said.
“I do not think this is the kind of the capital city we all want. There is a lot of chaos in the city.
“I am grateful to see Government and civil society collaborating to this very important task to restore the City of Harare’s sunshine status. I should say this meeting was long overdue.”
