Residents threaten boycott

Residents this week petitioned the City of Harare over the collapse in service provision, threatening to unleash a series of actions against the municipality including intensifying a rates boycott campaign.
The major concerns cited in the petition include the illegality of Harare Com

mission, refuse collection and the persistent water cuts that residents are experiencing.
Residents are unhappy with the proposed supplementary budget and yet residents had rejected Harare 2007 City Budget. The petition was also copied to the Ministry of Local Government.
In another development, Budiriro residents invaded the local District Offices protesting against the prolonged water cuts they are experiencing.
Scores of residents holding empty buckets marched around the offices singing protest songs on the 30th of June 2007.
The demonstration lasted two hours and no one was arrested. – CHRA
