CCC MP Opposes Kwekwe Council Decision To Demolish Tuckshops

CCC MP Opposes Kwekwe Council Decision To Demolish Tuckshops

Kwekwe Central legislator, Judith Tobaiwa, has criticised Kwekwe City Council management for resolving to demolish some illegal tuckshops and gas cages.

In a recent notice, the local authority said all illegal tuckshops, including gas cages, must be demolished. The notice read:

I wish to inform that all illegal tuck-shops and gas cage owners within the City of Kwekwe have to demolish or remove their illegal structures by 29 June 2022.

Failure of which illegal structures will be demolished by council without further notice.

However, Tobaiwa argued that destroying the structures was not the solution. She urged the council to engage citizens and find alternatives. Said Tobaiwa:

I have noted with concern a circular from Kwekwe City threatening to demolish what they term illegal tuck-shops and gas cages.

As a lawmaker and an exemplary citizen, I would like to see sanity in our town, but the move by the management is wrong, considering the situation in our country.

The situation would be better resolved by engaging everyone involved and offering alternatives.

I implore our councillors to represent the citizens and make sure the council does the correct thing in the correct way.

The management cannot continue to act like a mad man with a hammer.

The citizens of Kwekwe deserve better and should not continue to suffer because of the incompetence of the regime.

If you know your structure is illegal pull it down and keep the material.When you new government comes into power in 2023 you will be allowed to build chero pawada. There will be nothing called an illegal structure.

Honorable Judith Tobaiwa is right. Kwekwe City Council must suspend its decision to pull down illegal structures and go ahead when things normalise. The same tuckshop owners are paying rates to the City Council from those illegal tuckshops. If the City Council destroys those tuckshops, it will have destroyed their only source of income.

The Kwekwe City Council must be commended for their efforts in enforcing order in the City.All illegal activities have to controlled before it becomes free for all.

the council is trying to put order in a wrong way destroying property means loss to citizens

the MP is not saying order is not needed but she is pushing for more humane approach instead of destroying
the structures can be made legal by paying up and outing them on a plan and therefore they start paying reasonable tax too .....no political mileage is being sought kungoziva zvido zvevanhu nekuziva kugara nemacotizens zvisina kahutsinye soo

Thank you madam Tobaiwa. Demolishing illegal tuckshop would be like adding salt to the wound. The little that people are getting from proceeds from these tuckshops goes a long way in alleviating poverty. When the economy is flourishing, getting permits wouldnt be a problem.
