ZANU PF Space Barons Parcel Out Land Near Mbudzi Roundabout

ZANU PF Space Barons Parcel Out Land Near Mbudzi Roundabout

ZANU PF space barons have reportedly taken over the open land close to the closed Mbudzi traffic interchange in Harare and are parcelling it out to vendors for US$50 per square metre.

The roundabout was closed recently to allow for major construction works and hawkers who were doing business on the island have been ordered to move.

ZANU PF space barons have taken advantage of the situation to extort the vendors and are now demanding US$5 a day from each vendor for a vending permit on the route diversions, and an initial US$50 per square metre per month from stall owners.

The land is adjacent to the traffic lights at Malvern Road and Chitungwiza Road in the Hopley area.

The Ministry of Transport and Infrastructural Development closed off the four roads leading into the Mbudzi interchange on Sunday for a distance of 1.5km in each direction.

One of the affected vendors, who identified himself to ZimLive as Elvis Musera, appealed to the government to intervene and stop the space barons. He said:

This man told us to pay for a meter-and-a-half and we paid US$50 and today we are told the space is one meter for each. The government should step in and make sure things are not done haphazardly.

Deputy transport minister Michael Madiro said they will work as fast as possible to ensure that motorists are not inconvenienced longer than is necessary. Madiro said:

The government appreciates the inconvenience the temporary closure of the roundabout will cause but it is part of the small sacrifices which our people have to make.

It’s one of those instances where the result justifies the means to that end. We will work as fast as we technically can to ensure that we deliver world class infrastructure for the motoring public.

The victims of the land barons at Mbudzi Round have approached a wrong Office because the land barons are owned by ZANU PF and the Minister or his Deputy will pretend not to see or hear what is happening.

May citizens analyse Honourable Michael Madiro's statement. He seems to chew his tongue. He was told that the problem was about land barons, but he stammered starting talking working hard to complete the project in double quick time.

This had nothing to do with the land barons. He was told that land barons were fleecing citizens by
illegally charging 50 USD per metre or square metre.

I am advising those who are being fleeced to approach the Harare City Council immediately. His Worship, Mayor Mafume, is going to act immediately.

[ UNDER ADVOCATE NELSON CHAMISA LAND BARONS SHALL BE A THING OF THE PAST ].

[ CITIZENS NOW WANT ADVOCATE NELSON CHAMISA TO SIT IN THE SADDLE ].

[ VA ADVOCATE NELSON CHAMISA NGAVA GARE PANYANGA ].

Yours sincerely
William Sonboy CHINEMBIRI
[ THE BUSH LAWYER ].
