Executive summary

The Harare Residents' Trust (HRT) held its fifth Full Residents' Council on Friday 21 June 2013, demonstrating once again that the residents' movement has continued to build its capacity to create a platform for residents' leadership to conduct its business on behalf of residents. The Full RC brings together all the HRT residents' committees in Harare suburbs whose chief responsibility is monitoring community service delivery and the performance of elected representatives and service providers. This is in line with one of the HRT objectives of "monitoring and auditing the performance of service providers for quality service provision". The Full RC is an important structure of the HRT which meets once or twice annually to seriously debate on community service delivery issues, make recommendations and resolutions on how to deal with issues affecting communities. The HRT has exhibited its grassroots approach in confronting the problems that Harare communities face in their interaction with community service providers and local government leaders.

This report is a consolidation of HRT suburban structures experiences composed of all issues that emerged from the Full Residents' Council Meeting successfully hosted on Friday 21 2013. This year's Full RC was attended by 26 of the 36 suburban structures with three representatives from each suburb. Among the participants were members of the state security Police Internal Security Intelligence (PISI) and Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO), who indicated that they came from Waterfalls Police Station and from the media houses came Harare News, studio 7, CORAH radio and three freelance journalists.
