Emganwini residents threaten council


EMGANWINI residents say they are planning a series of demonstrations against the Bulawayo City Council after it ignored their petition where they demanded title deeds for their houses.

Report by Own correspondent

The residents are beneficiaries of the Millenium Housing Development scheme implemented by council with the help of donors.
Mandula Ncube, a human rights activist representing the residents, said council had failed to explain why they were not being given title deeds for the houses.

He said the first demonstration will be held on Friday.

Bulawayo mayor Thaba Moyo last week said council would not act on the residents’ demands unless they used proper channels and described the looming demonstration as “unprocedural”.

The residents accuse the local authority of cheating them by demanding payment for houses that were built through donations.
