ACCORDING to municipal by-laws, parking on public streets within Harare’sinner city is permitted subject to the pre-payment of parking fees.
Accordingly, any vehicle found to be non-compliant is clamped and then towed away.
This being the case, could the counc
il explain why vehicles parked in some streets, for instance outside Mukwati and Kaguvi buildings in 5th Street and 3rd Street between Central Avenue and Samora Machel Avenue, are seemingly exempt from paying parking fees and penalties?
I pass regularly through these streets and note that the majority of parked vehicles do not display prepaid discs and I have never seen even one vehicle clamped, let alone towed away!
Is this not another case of special treatment for a select few?
