Bulawayo City Council fails residents

Story by Lisa Masuku

THE City of Bulawayo, which was the pride of the country because of its cleanliness, has become a pale shadow of the orderly urban set-up it was known for.

The Central Business District has been turned into a jungle with buses and vendors operating at undesignated points due to the local authority’s failure to provide proper workspaces.

“We are just operating here without licences and the police can come at any time and take our things. All we want is for the council to sort out our licenses,” said a resident.

Another resident said, “The main thing that is causing disorder and congestion here is the fact that we are operating without licences because since 2020 our licences have not been renewed. This causes a lot of loopholes because anyone can just come and set up and you can’t say or do anything about it.”

Littered with garbage, roads in the city are also a nightmare for motorists to navigate.

“Bulawayo is now very dirty and on top of that our roads are damaged. The local authority is letting us down,” lamented a resident.
