'Be aware of bogus company'

Harare Residents Trust (HRT) has warned residents to be wary of a bogus group that is selling plastic bins claiming to be from the Harare City Council and Environmental Management Agency (EMA).

The company is said to have dispatched a team of merchants to most high - density suburbs and putting up yellow bibs and selling  8 plastic bins for $2 .

Speaking to CORAH, HRT Committee Coordinator Pretty Chabuda did not say investigations have shown that the company is registered nor have relations with Harare City Council or EMA.

'We spoke to the director of EMA who said they do not deploy anyone in those areas and we also spoke to Christopher Mbanga of City Council who also said he was not aware of such developments, '
said Chabuda.

The disclosures come after incessant complaints by residents in suburbs such as Glen Norah, Kuwadzana, Budiriro and Glen View that a group of individuals has been moving around their areas forcing people to buy the bins and that if they fail, council and EMA will heavily fine them.
Failure by the Harare city council to provide refuse collecting bins has been attributed by residents to the emergence of such bogus companies.

The Combined Harare Residents Association (CHRA) has commended the Harare Mayor Bernard Manyenyeni for accepting to meet with the residents on a monthly basis.

The association says the meetings will give residents the platform to suggest ways of resolving service delivery problems facing the local authority.

In an interview with CORAH, Combined Harare Residents Association’s (CHRA) Programs Chairperson Evernice Munando said the meetings will create a crucial interface between the residents and the Mayor as the residents will get monthly updates on what is happening in the council.

‘We are grateful that the Mayor has agreed to meet us and we are going to engage with him Mayor and also try to understand what is really happening.

The engagement is be good for us as we will get direct information from the Mayor himself and he will also get the opportunity to listen to our concerns and we feel this will lead to better service delivery, ' said Munando.

CHRA proposed the monthly meetings with the Mayor and these will be held at Town House and all residents are welcome. Harare city council faces a number of challenges which are affecting service delivery. Residents say these problems can only be solved if both parties work together.
