Harare City Council has defended allocating several residential stands on tarred streets in Harare, saying in fact it is the roads that were illegally erected two decades ago.

This comes after The Herald exposed that some corrupt officials were parcelling out stands on tarred streets and land reserved for social amenities.

Posting on its Twitter handle, the city said the road in Glen Norah suburb was put there 20 years ago as an illegal structure and the stands were properly surveyed and allocated lawfully.

“People need to get the facts right before going political on purely procedural matters,” said the city.

“The stands are very legal. The road is the illegal structure.

“No one has been prejudiced. All have access to their properties. Delivering houses to the people.”

Some of the streets visited by our publication in Glen Norah include a house under construction, already at window level, erected right in the middle of Mabanda Crescent opposite house number 664 in Glen Norah A.

There were other two cottages which have been completed and waiting for final touches in the middle of Narira Crescent in Glen Norah A. Herald
