demos.jpgThe Harare Municipal Workers have vowed to continue with their peaceful demonstrations until the city fathers address their grievances.

Despite protests by the Harare Municipal Workers union over their February outstanding salary and the dismissal  of their chairperson Mr. Cosmas Bungu, the city of Harare has remained silent over the issue prompting workers to vow to storm into town house everyday until they get an audience with the responsible authorities.


The Harare municipal Workers union committee member Mrs. Florence Ruzive said they are unhappy with the attitude adopted by the city fathers as they have ignored their concerns. The workers today turned townhouse into a funeral parlor as they were weeping as a sign of showing their discontent over corruption and salaries issue.


Ms Ruzive also said they are concerned about the level of corruption at town house which they said has reached unprecedented levels .She said loss of cattle on council farms is major issue they want to be handled transparently as this corruption is impacting negatively on the council revenue generation capacity.


Last week members of the Harare Municipal Workers union gathered at townhouse demanding an audience with the town clerk. The workers who participated at the peaceful demonstration include those from the Harare water, Engineering, Waste management, housing, finance and public works departments. Harare city council says it will release a comprehensive statement on the issue raised by the workers.
