Residents rap council over rubbish


Harare’s Houghton Park residents have complained about uncollected refuse despite the $150 per month they pay for the service.

Huge piles of stinking garbage can be found at every street corner, a situation that has riled ratepayers in this middle density suburb.

“We are now risking our health especially that of our children and the bad part is that medication does not come cheap,” said Nyarai Tapi.

A housing inspector at the local council office, however blamed the residents for littering the streets and open spaces.He urged residents to display a high standard of hygiene to avert disease outbreaks.
