Zimbabwe: Residents Blast City of Harare Over Misplaced Priorities

Harare residents have blasted the city fathers over what they termed “misplaced priorities” following the announcement that the city had signed a Memorandum Of Agreement (MOA) with Sesani Private Limited to establish a rail transport system known as Tramways.

The city fathers have been blamed for giving the green light to the latest development despite the city facing a host of challenges, including acute shortage of clean and safe water and uncollected refuse among other problems.

Announcing the development on Facebook, the city council said the trams will do away with transport woes, something which did not go well with the residents who accused the Movement for Democratic Change-led council of misplaced priorities.

Patrick Tawanda Kamuti But only in their dreams can men be truly free. It was always thus and always thus will be. Dream on. But are’nt there other pressing priorities? Water, emergency services etc
