National Vendors Union of Zimbabwe (NAVUZ) on the harassment of vendors in Harare

The announcement by the Harare City Council (HCC) this week that they have completed the registration process of vendors and that they are now allocating vending sites should be viewed as a farce and the beginning of a chaotic phase within the vending enterprise in Harare. vendors

There are more than 12 000 vendors in the CBD area of Harare, and the exercise that was completed by HCC only attracted a paltry 4 800. What this simply shows is that vendors have refused to take part in a secretive palaver. Vendors are prepared to take part in the registration process but will shun an exercise that is marred my corruption and political patronage.

As far as NAVUZ is concerned, the entire process was marred by massive irregularities that made it impossible for genuine vendors to get registered and become part of the processes. Corrupt officials at the HCC and emerging ‘Space Barons’ linked to some powerful politicians manipulated the entire process and ensured that their surrogates benefitted from the exercise at the expense of genuine vendors who have been operating in the CBD area for the past twenty years or more. Most of the surrogates, who previously were based in Mbare, migrated to Harare’s CBD area because they have connections and aim to take advantage of the same to get strategic vending sites at the expense of the original occupants of the sites.

At the expiry of the vendors registration ultimatum announced by HCC, NAVUZ has witnessed a marked increase in the number of abuses on vendors at the hands of municipal police and thugs sponsored by ‘Space Barons.’ Eight of our members sustained varying degrees of injuries at the hands of these thugs and corrupt HCC officers. This surely cannot go unchallenged and NAVUZ is going to do everything within its capacity to ensure justice to the brutalized eight vendors.

The constitution of Zimbabwe is very graphic in Sections 51 and 53 with regards protection of livelihoods. The aforementioned Sections clearly guarantee protection against cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment and the right to human dignity. Actions by the Harare City Council and all its agencies runs contrary to the national objective of promoting private initiative and self-reliance as set out in section 13 (1) of the Constitution.

 
Cloud 9 Empire pushes for a 'cleaner sound'

By Ruzvidzo Mandizha

A Mufakose - based new dancehall crew, Cloud 9 Empire, has hit the music scene by storm with socially conscious music that the group believes will help youths affected by current economic and social hardships.

The producer and leading vocalist of the crew, Hevaddah, told Talking Harare they have come a long way and now it is time for them to shine.

‘We are saying Zim dancehall to the people, artists must unite so that we can work on our art and currently our latest productions are an album with the hit song- Haikona kurara. Our messages focuses on dealing with immorality, drug abuse and other vices in a bid to promote violence free and moral society.

'We started recording two years ago and have noticed the effects of dancehall music on most youths and now we need to reverse the messages some of which are driving other teens astray. We want messages that promote education and entertainment and at the same time build a better tomorrow,' said Hevaddah.

Dancehall music is on the rise in Zimbabwe but concerns have been raised over the behavior of some of the leading dancehall artists who have since courted controversy in the form of drug abuse,  sex scandals and other immoral activities.
