Uncertainty grips EasiPark workers

There is confusion over control of parking space in Harare’s central business district with both marshals from the expelled EasiPark Company and touts purporting to represent the Harare city council demanding payments from motorists.

Harare city council gave the South African owned EasiPark Company an ultimatum to close operations by March 21 for failing to remit money to the city’s coffers.

Employees of EasiPark last week complained of uncertainty, saying they were in the dark as to what exactly was going on as company authorities remain tight-lipped.

“We only know what is happening through the press,” said one employee.

He said workers were failing to secure banks loans because of the uncertainty surrounding the company’s future.

Chairperson of Harare’s Business Committee, Thomas Muzuva said: “What I know is that we gave EasiHold (the holding company of EasiPark) 90 days to wind up its operations and it expired on the 21 of March, I cannot say much because the case is at the courts.”

Easipark general manager Pegias Dube was not picking up his phone when The Zimbabwean called him for a comment while Harare city council public relations manager Leslie Gwindi refused to comment because the matter was before the courts.
