There is a lot of information and misinformation spreading about the Harare City/ City Parking fundraising efforts. They are on a clamping spree and will punish any infraction and so drive and park like the decent human being you can be.

    If this statement is written and released by someone with a title of ‘a manager’, then the city people are in big trouble for being run by foolish gangs unfit to manage. It confirms rural people are running urban centres with no experience of urban life.

    Imbava idzi , if your vehicle gets toured you will be charged $50USD per night on top of the $132 hameno

      I have to agree $50 storage fee is really excessive. The fine is OK but the storage is clearly daylight robbery. Heaping misery on top of an already tough situation.
      $20 storage fee would be more than enough if they really have to charge a fee.

    Those with vision deserted the CBD long ago and relocated to places where they have a say in how they are run and the standards to be maintained. With no touts, beggars, noisy vendors selling all over and at shop entrances, the shop owners and the shoppers lead a less stressful life with CCTV and security details that keep away the undesirables

      ” Those with vision AND BAGS OF MONEY deserted the CBD long ago…”😂😂😂

      Haven’t had to go to the wider CBD much since covid and work from home (aka workplace went under and now i’m freelancing😅), but thanks to zesa, I had to walk across CBD to get to a shared workspace. It seems like more and more real estate is being subdivided into smaller and smaller spaces. Its like Tuck Shop City! Some sidewalks you cant even walk two abreast thanks to the vendors (i feel they used to be more modest in how much space they took up, like 1 paver instead of 3). The parking situation just adds flavour to the urban wilderness that is some of Harare CBD. Really interesting developments!

      By introducing these Harsh And unrealistic penalties they are promoting corruption within their officers.now I believe they are in it together with their ground officers collecting the bribes And share with their bosses. If you raise a query they simply don’t listen And you end up paying. Evil people God will deal with you.

    This is what happens when the management of the city is delegated to touts. What you expect to see at Mbare musika will be brought to the city centre. No reason to open a business in the city centre. Move out of the city otherwise your clients will be harassed and abused daily.

    Absurd prices…prying on poor motorists…its a crime to own a car in zim…council and police are on a spree to make sure if one has a car…one has to suffer

    Drive lanes and parking spaces are blocked by mushikashika and vendors (to mention cnr julius and robert) and you are doing nothing abt it. Only waiting to punish an innocent car owner who has parked where parking lines are not visible.
