GLEN View residents on
Thursday 5 July 2007 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
The major concerns that
are cited in the petition include the illegality of Harare Commission,
refuse collection and the persistent water cuts that residents are
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.
