Tinashe Sambiri|MDC Alliance leader, President Nelson Chamisa, has pointed out that the heartless demolition of citizens’ homes in Budiriro, Harare is a reflection of the destructive nature of Mr Emmerson Mnangagwa’s administration.
Speaking after visiting the victims of the demolitions on Thursday, President Chamisa described the Zanu PF government’s carefree attitude towards the plight of suffering citizens as puzzling and unacceptable.
“We have just witnessed the worst form of violation of human rights.
Children have been left in the open despite the heavy rains.
This is totally unacceptable.This is a clear reflection of the Zanu PF administration’s destructive nature.
We view the demolition citizens’ homes as a heartless act.There should be mechanisms in place to ensure the safety of the affected families.
In actual fact you do not pull down buildings before looking at the consequences,” said President Chamisa.
Harare Mayor, Councillor Jacob Mafume efforts are being made to seek donations to help the affected families.
“There are plans to set up temporary structures for the affected families.We are therefore appealing for donations to help the victims.We are also looking at long term solutions to their predicament,” said Mayor Mafume.
