Harare City Council Criticised For Dumping Waste Near Houses In Mbare

Harare City Council Criticised For Dumping Waste Near Houses In Mbare

Harare City Council (HCC) has been criticised for continuing to dump waste near houses in Mbare with residents organisations calling on the local government authority to stop it!

The Combined Harare Residents Association (CHRA) says the garbage is creating a serious health hazard to Mbare residents.

The illegal dumpsite which is located at Corner Chaminuka and Seke Street, Joburg lines opposite Mbare Musika bus terminus has started piling up.

In July this year, Mbare residents petitioned Harare City Council over the issue but the city fathers ignored the petition.

CHRA called on the City of Harare to urgently comply with Mbare residents’ request which is in accordance with section 70 (1) of the Environmental Management Act 20:27.

The cited section states that “No person shall discharge or dispose of any waste in a manner that causes environmental pollution or ill health to any person.”

CHRA also cited section 73 of the Zimbabwean Constitution which provides that every citizen has a right to a clean environment.

This article is embarrassing to the Harare City Council. It should actually be the Harare City Council which is threatening citizens with court action rather than the opposite.

I recommend that you refer this to His Worship Mayor Jacob Mafume for his attention. It is my hope that he will react in favour of the residents.
