Cases of malnutrition in Harare have risen by over 150 percent with the cityโ€™s acting epidemiologist Dr Michael Vere advising residents to show up for malnutrition counselling programmes offered at the Council Poly Clinics and in the communities.

Of those affected 95 percent are children below the age of 5 years while the above 5 years age group accounts for the remainder.

Dr Vere said the Health Services Department has been working on malnutrition cases using screening programmes conducted at the Council Poly Clinics and in the community.

โ€œWe have been performing malnutrition counselling where we teach people how to prepare an adequately balanced mealโ€ said Dr Vere.

โ€œWe are also doing malnutrition rehabilitation in our clinics, this is mainly done to those with severe acute malnutrition where we provide fortified foods or ready to use therapeutic foods that are available in 20 of our clinicsโ€.

Residents are also given nutritional guidance which are very important as it enables people to grow crops that allow them to prepare nutritional meals.

The City of Harare has noted recent reports in the media that 15 boreholes in the city were found to have human faecal matter.
E-coli is an indicator organism, indicating possible faecal contamination. The tests done do not indicate that its human but could be from other mammals as E-coli comes from both.
The City Health Department did routine water quality monitoring of all water sources including boreholes, and municipal water in response to watery diarrhea outbreaks that were reported in some western suburbs and the water sampling implicated some boreholes used by those affected.
The standard procedure is that any water source found contaminated from E-coli is disinfected with chlorine or HtH to make it safe, source of contamination is investigated and dealt with accordingly for example repair of sewer choke and disinfection with chloride of lime to avoid further contamination.
Our water department regularly tests water at various strategic points in the distribution network, particularly water reservoirs and take corrective measures when residual chlorine is below set standard. Various zonal Superintendents have regular stock of HTH issued from Morton Jaffrays Waterworks for this purpose.
In response to the tested boreholes action taken so far include:-
a. Installation of inline chlorinator on borehole
b. Distribution of non food items such as aqua tabs and buckets
c. Promoting point of use water treatment by use of aqua tabs, water guard and boiling
d. Setting up and training of community Water Point Committees to manage the water sources
e. Health and hygiene education dissemination on prevention and control of diarrheal diseases
f. Intensified surveillance and response to alerts

Rufaro marketing boss suspended

Rufaro Marketing Pvt Ltd chief executive Daniel Mutiwadirwa has been suspended without salary and benefits.

Mutiwadirwa was suspended for allegedly refusing to furnish important documents to the Mr Obey Shava led board which intended to sift through the companies financials.
The company which has a vast property portfolio has not been remitting any meaningful dividends to council.
In a letter written to Mutiwadirwa Mr Shava wrote, โ€œ The employer has good cause for believing that you have committed a serious misconduct in that you contravened Section 4(b) of the Code i.e. S.I. 15 of 2006 by โ€˜willfully disobeying lawful orders in one or more of the following ways; i. ii. On 13 January 2023 the Chairman of the Rufaro Marketing Board instructed you to issue a Notice to all Board Members convening an extra-ordinary general meeting on Wednesday, the 18th of January 2023 at 1430hrs.โ€

โ€œ Despite the written instruction you have refused, failed and/or neglected to convene that meeting. On the same date, 13 January 2023 the Chairman also requested you to furnish him with copies of the lease agreements in respect of all the Rufaro Marketing tenants and the contracts of employment in respect of all its employees by the 16th of January 2023. Despite that clear and unequivocal instruction, you refused, failed and or neglected to provide the requested documents and information.โ€

Mutiwadirwa has been barred from handling any company business.

Mayor Jacob Mafume says Council is using own funds and City Parking mostly for road rehabilitation and maintenance in the City as Zinara continues to allocate crumbs to the local authority which has the huge chunk of licence paying vehicles in the country.

He said Council has no choice but to take Zinara to court so that it can be deconstructed and vehicle licensing be brought back to the local authorities.

The problems of failure to repair and maintain roads and the attendant infrastructure began when Zinara took over and the results were visible on the ground for all to see.

In the last five years out of expectations of plus or minus US$60 million per year, City of Harare received less than US$2,5 million per year.

Council has not received anything from fuel levy and carbon tax revenues in the past and this is another where Mayor Mafume demanded a fair share of the national cake.

Mayor Mafume said as a result Council is failing to meet its targets on road maintenance because of the meagre funds provided by Zinara.

โ€œTo illustrate the sad state of affairs in the Roads sector we had a target of 40 km road rehabilitation and because of funding constraints we only managed to do 12,5km rehabilitation and in terms of routine maintenance our target was 450 km and on this one we managed to do 436km using funds from City Parking Pvt Ltd and the budget provision.โ€

โ€œIf Zinara funds were allocated during the first Quarter of the year, we could have done over 89km of Road Reseal, 52 km of Overlay and 20km of Road Reconstruction. The last disbursement made in December 2022 meant that we could only do 15 km of reseal, 8km of overlay and 3 km of Reconstruction,โ€ said Mayor Mafume

He said the Zinara model was not working and needs a relook. If the country is serious about addressing the challenges in the roads sector.

Mayor Mafume said responsible authorities and the members of Parliament must take heed of the calls by local authorities and residents to reform the Zinara model.

The budget also intends to build on sustainability of service delivery through requisite procurement of plant and equipment, which enables efficient service delivery.

In line with the expectations of the residents of Harare arising from the consultative process, the City did not increase tariffs for the following services:
โ€ข Water
โ€ข Sewerage
โ€ข Property tax
โ€ข Refuse collection
โ€ข Hospital and clinic user fees

This has been done to ensure affordability, sustainability, and access to services for all. While Council has maintained the 2022 tariffs on user fees, there is however a marginal increase on other services.

Council in 2022 procured operational assets and funded capital projects to the tune of ZWL3.359 Billion. Over and above, the procurement of service delivery assets, we also carried out maintenance work at our various water works and we managed to commission new equipment at Morton Jaffray.

โ€ข Council Rented Properties: council resolved to dispose Council rented accommodation to eligible sitting tenants to promote home ownership in Harare.
โ€ข Building plan approval fees have been rationalized to facilitate ease of doing business.
โ€ข Market fees have been rationalized to promote growth of small and medium enterprises sector.
โ€ข Clamping and towing fees rationalized to reduce corruption in the sector and maintain order.

All charges are pegged in US dollars, but residents are free to use a currency of their choice in line with provisions of the law.

In view of the static tariff structure, we therefore urge all our ratepayers to honor their obligations timeously for the city to actualize the 2023 budget and bring about the much yearned for conducive environment for development as well as sustain service delivery as mandated by the Urban Councils Act.( Chapter 29:15)

The City of Harare would like to advise itโ€™s valued customers and stakeholders that the recommissioning of Morton Jaffray Treatment Plant is in progress after it was shutdown last night around 1750hrs.
The shutdown was due to challenges within the water treatment chemicals supply chain and compounded by recent inclement weather patterns in raw material source countries.
One load of liquid aluminium sulphate was received at 0610 hours this morning and four loads of granular aluminium sulphate are expected in the course of the day.
The initial target flow for Morton Jaffray is 200 mega litres and 65 mega litres for Prince Edward.
The target flow will still affect a number of suburbs which will receive minimum to zero flow until more chemicals are received.
The city regrets any inconveniences caused.

PUBLIC NOTICE

WASTE RECYCLING ACTIVITIES

The City of Harare, while wishing everyone a wonderful New Year, have observed that waste recycling companies and buyers of recyclable waste are buying recyclable waste from waste pickers who have in the process set up "storage hubs" at designated skip bins points in the CBD at undesignated points across the city.

Whilst the City promotes waste recovery and minimization of waste activities of the same, these "waste hubs" created and set up by waste pickers are creating a public eyesore at skip points such as MARKET SQUARE, CHARGE OFFICE, SPEKE AVENUE and PARKADE bus terminus.

Resultantly, these waste "storage hubs" at these undesignated points have also resulted in the creation of illegal dumping points. Recycling companies, buyers of waste and waste pickers are hereby encouraged to engage the City of Harare and liaise with the Acting Director of Works (+263 242 772507) for harmonization of these waste management activities.

Pursuant to this, the City therefore advises the parties concerned or interested that enforcement visits and operations will be conducted and fines and charges preferred to obtaining defaulters soon.

So, please be guided accordingly

Council has noticed that there has been an influx of land invasions in and around the city on wetlands and land meant for other purposes.
The city is buoyed by Government support against land invasions and will ensure that all land is properly planned for and is used for what it is zoned for.
As Council we sympathise with residents who chose to listen to land barons instead of Council which controls development in its area of jurisdiction. But while we commiserate with them--- we are determined to bring order in Harare and to restore the invaded land to its planned use.
The land being invaded is earmarked for schools, business centres while some of it is unsuitable for construction work. Wetlands are being invaded and parcelled out as housing land.
City of Harare and Government are the only land authorities in Harare. No one besides Council and Government (State land) has the mandate to distribute any land for any purpose.
Council will therefore not entertain any persons or individuals who settle themselves on municipal land without its consent.
Anyone who chooses to build without Council approval would be throwing their investments down the drain.
Residents and homeseekers are free to visit our District Offices and Rememberance Drive offices in Mbare to make inquiries on any housing development project in Harare.

Council has noted with concern the invasion of Fourth Street Bus Terminus by space barons who are creating an illegal market.
The City is urging the space barons to remove their shacks before Council moves in to assist.
By this notice members of the public and vendors are being urged not to pay anyone to use tables on the illegal market.
Only council officials are mandated to allocate vending spaces.
Council recognizes the important role played by the informal sector in the national economy especially during this period when our country is facing macro- economic challenges.
We accept that the informal sector is critical in income generation but there is need to balance that with order and compliance with by-laws.

Mayor Cllr Jacob Mafume says Government should re-look in to the position of an Executive Mayor for local authorities as it is key in decision making and development of the city.

He said this while delivering his end of year speech at Town House where he stressed the importance of the position in efficient management of local authorities.

Cllr Mafume said the pressure and demands of the post requires a re-look of the position by the government.

โ€œIn 2008 through the amendment of the Local Government laws, the post of Executive Mayors was abolished in Zimbabwe. The authorities had their own reasons, but the pressures and the demands call for a relook into this.

โ€œThe Mayor of the City of Harare after the President is the second most powerful measurable public service deployment,โ€ he said.

Cllr Mafume bemoaned interference of government which he said is hindering development of the city.

โ€œThe budget for Harare can be compared to budgets of some African countries, but we continue to suffer interference which chokes development.

โ€œWe need an Executive Mayor, who is protected from Ministry of Local Government politics and interference, for functionality and management of Town House bureaucracy.

โ€œThe institution of the Office of Mayor is acknowledged in section 277(2) of the Constitution, underscoring its importance in Zimbabwe.

โ€œThe Constitution allows the establishment of Executive Mayors, Ceremonial Mayors, or both. Currently, Mayors are ceremonial and are elected by councilors from the members of a Council,โ€ he said.

Cllr Mafume said mayors of Harare and Bulawayo do not have executive powers yet they play a significant role and are quite influential in the development and running of city affairs.

He added that the issue of an Executive Mayor is an important subject for debate with the authorities in 2023 and City needs a governance structure that works and delivers enhanced service delivery for the citizens.

Mayor Mafume also proposed that Harare requires two positions of Deputy Town Clerks to assist on the administration of the City Affairs as the City is growing and as such the Town Clerk requires adequate support in managing the day-to-day operations.

There are near misses as both traffic is face a Green light. An Engineer from the dept was contacted but no response yet this has gone for weeks.
