Parking fees have been increased in Harare for the fourth time in six months this year and the latest review will see motorists paying ZWL$400 per hour for parking in the Central Business District, up from the current ZWL$300.
The adjustments are with effect from the 1st of July, 2022.
The increase comes exactly a month after the previous one after the local authority raised parking fees from ZWL$190 per hour in May to ZWL300 this month.
This year, City Parking, a private company wholly owned by the City of Harare, first increased parking fees as follows:
i). From ZWL$100 to ZWL$120 in January,
ii). ZWL$120 to ZWL150 in March,
iii). ZWL150 to ZWL190 in May and
iv). ZWL190 to ZWL$300 this month.
The new charges take the fees to more than US$1, according to the official exchange rate, which stands at zw$347,31 as it this Tuesday.
On the black market, the US$1 is valued between ZW$400 and ZW$600.
