The Opposition Has Turned Our Towns Into Rural Areas - ZANU PF

The Opposition Has Turned Our Towns Into Rural Areas - ZANU PF

The ruling ZANU PF has accused the opposition of ruining towns and cities until they resemble rural areas.

The remarks were made by Tendai Chirau, ZANU PF’s Deputy Secretary for Youth Affairs, during the party’s Harare Province by-election launch in Chitungwiza this Monday.

Most urban local authorities have been under the stewardship of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) since the turn of the millennium when the party took over from the ruling party.

Chirau said he was grateful that people were encouraged to unite against the opposition. He said:

Let’s unite. The opposition has turned our towns into rural areas. Let’s take back all seats.

Local authorities have for years failed to deliver public goods and services such as potable water, sewer reticulation, road maintenance and garbage collection.

They cite a lack of adequate resources saying ratepayers are not honouring their obligations whilst the central government is not consistently giving them the revenue from the national purse.

The opposition also accuses the central government of interfering with local government business.

ZANU PF which has had ministers heading the Local Government Ministry deny interference, it says the central government has an oversight role over local government authorities.

This is happening ahead of the March by-elections and 2023 harmonised elections.

TENDAI CHIRAU LIED THROUGH HIS TEETH THAT OPPOSITION PARTIES ARE "RUINING TOWNS AND CITIES."

IT IS ZANU PF POLICIES, NEPOTISM AND CORRUPTION WHICH HAVE RUINED THESE TOWNS AND CITIES.

FIRSTLY OPPOSITION DOMINATED COUNCILS DO NOT OPERATE HANGING IN THE AIR. THEY OPERATE UNDER A ZANU PF GOVERNMENT MINISTER, IN THIS CASE CAMARADA JULY MOYO, WHO SITS IN A ZANU PF CABINET WHERE POLICIES ARE DEBATED AND PASSED.

THESE ARE THE POLICIES WHICH HAVE RUINED CITIES AND TOWNS. CITY COUNCILS DO NOT MANUFACTURE FOREIGN CURRENCY OF THEIR OWN TO PROCURE GOODS AND SERVICES FROM OUTSIDE THE COUNTRY. RBZ SHOULD PROVIDE MUNICIPALITIES AND TOWN COUNCILS WITH FOREIGN CURRENCY, BUT RBZ DOES NOT HAVE THAT KIND OF MONEY.

IT IS ZANU PF MINISTER WHO FIRES MAYORS FOR NO APPARENT REASONS AND DELIBERATELY PROCRASTINATES IN APPOINTING HIS SUBSTANTIVE REPLACEMENT.

IT IS CLEAR THAT ZANU PF IS NOW WOBBLING IN THEIR LONG TROUSERS AND BOTTOMS AS THEY SMELL THE THOROUGH BEATING AT THE 2023 HARMONISED ELECTIONS. CCC HAS COME HOTTEST. PEOPLE NOW WANT REAL CHANGE, NOT COSMETIC CHABGE.

YESTERDAY YOU WERE SAYING SANCTIONS HAVE RUINED THE ECONOMY AND TODAY YOU ARE SAYING OPPOSITION PARTIES HAVE RUINED CITIES AND COUNCILS. WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU WILL SAY TOMORROW.

NO MATTER HOW MUCH ZANU PF SELLS ITSELF TO THE ELECTORATE, PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY MADE UP THEIR MINDS. THEY WANT CHANGE AND THAT CHANGE SHALL COME THROUGH THE BALLOT BOX COME 2023.

[ THESE GUYS MUST NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE ELECTORATE'S ANGER. IT SHALL BURST IN THE BALLOT BOX IN 2023 ].

YOURS TRULY
CDE KUFA KWANGU ZVAROVA
[ THE BUSH LAWYER ]

Mr Chirau seems not to understand how people in the society lives.How can unemployed people pay council bills and rates so that there might be service delivery?If the government would craft proper policies don't you think it would benefit everyone and everything will just improve.Have you ever seen that the industrial areas have been turned into ghost villages without even production.Tge city is now flooded with vendors and beggars.How do you expect them to be responsible for their debts...

@ Dr Nero Problem yako ndeyekuti you think you are somehow holding CCC accountable for trying to help you out of your miserable impoverished life of which you are correct.

Because sezvo uriwe urikuzviroya you don't feel pity for yourself to such an extent even a helping hand that is right in front of you, you see it as an intimidation, or kukutsvinyira, my guy usazvivenge kusvika pakuti hautodi kuona uchibudirira iwewe wacho.

Please 🙏 I beg zvinzwirewo tsitsi nhamo yako inosiririsa, As proven even by your name, you even wished to be a Dr but hey Im very sure that is already out of the table. Unonzwisa tsitsi.

Nowadays the most powerful position in the municipal system is that of the town clerk all the town clerks in this country are loyal to the rulling party in my community the current town clerk was given a new Toyota Fortuner because the one flash car he was owning it's mirror has been broken

When first ........ Came into town it was the first city council to gave her more money than other council's where we get water from that's when we started to have water problems in the community

So howw can a mayor run a council under an eye of the devil

We used to have executive mayor's who were voted for but Zanu Pf saw that it had lost in towns and changed mayor's from executive to ceremonial mayor's with no powers.It is the town clecks who are in charge look at Harare every mayor on Opposition ticket will be subject to non stop suspensions by the Minister of Local Government.All the problems in towns and cities the rot points to Zanu Pf fullstop

I started working in 2002,and it's only in 2009 that I bought myself furniture and managed to raise roora money, just because of the MDC that came into the unity govt. That's the only time that MDC ever governed kwete zvenyu zvekupenga zvamuri kutaura izvi. Central govt has and is in charge of local govt ministry and knows how to manipulate the running of local authorities through the town clerk.
