HARARE City Council (HCC) on Thursday proposed to allocate residential stands to some of its employees in order to ease accommodation woes in the capital.
In a statement issued by the Education, Health, Housing and Community Services and Licensing Committee chairperson, Hammy Madzingira, HCC said it noted with great concern the accommodation challenges that the city employees were experiencing.
“HCC appreciates the accommodation woes that have been confronting its employees, particularly those that are owed stands in lieu of salary arrears.
“Land will be ring-fenced for the benefit of the affected employees in areas like Mabvuku where 2 132 stands will be allocated , in Tafara 342 and Eyestone 1 000 stands,” he said.
HCC has reported that 3 474 stands would be allocated and they should complement the 302 stands that have already been allocated to the employees.
Madzingira also said in two weeks the allocation of stands to beneficiaries should be expedited.
HCC has pledged to continue offering improved services to the residents.
