Upfumi kuvadiki  which  is protesting against the awarding of the car parking deal to a South African firm over locals says it was forced to stage a mini-protest at the offices of Easi- Park after several attempts to have a meeting with the city fathers had failed.

 

The group has been distributing fliers to motorists urging them to shun paying Easi Park officials arguing that the deal between the company and Harare city Council is still in dispute.

 

Meanwhile, some local entrepreneurs have since complained over the high parking fees charged by the South African company which they say are affecting their business operations.

 

The Easi-Park and Harare City Council deal has been condemned by the Indigenisation and Empowerment Board as well the Minister of Youth Indigenisation and Empowerment Cde Savior Kasukuwere who said the deal is stifling the government’s empowerment drive.
