CHITREST recommendations on Chitungwiza land scam
Residents Trust (CHITREST)
November 25, 2013
a. Chitungwiza Municipality, superintending Zimbabwe’s 3rd
largest urban population, needs a clear housing policy.
b. In response to the
growing urban population, the government must allocate adequate
land to local authorities for residential development purposes and
urgently resolve the Nyatsime housing project.
c. The country’s
electoral laws must be realigned so as to allow the deterrent punishment
of politicians who use land and other freebies as instruments of
d. Residential stands
must be sold as per the provisions of the housing policy on “first
come, first serve” basis rather than giving unfair preference
to those with fat pockets.
e. The city must ensure
that there is an efficient drainage system in place so as to enable
property development on wetlands.
f. Council must religiously
follow the provisions of its 2012 adopted employment policy, so
as to curb the recruitment of undeserving officials.
g. Chitungwiza residents
are the bona-fide owners of the town; hence they should be represented
in the Ministerial-appointed investigation team.
h. It is our sincere
hope as ratepayers that the Matiza led team will bring Chitungwiza’s
housing problems to finality this time than to continuously fleece
scarce council resources through bringing different commissions
