Marlborough residents, ward 41 have threatened to stop paying vehicle licencing fees until Zimbabwe National Road Administration (ZINARA) start realising funds for road maintenance in the area.
This was reviewed in a ward feedback meeting held recently.
Any road fees payable in terms of the Vehicle Registration and Licencing Act [Chapter 13:14], the Roads Act [Chapter 13:18] or any other law to the Zimbabwe National Road Administration be and is hereby remitted to the City of Harare under the appropriate department.
“For the avoidance of doubt, no payment shall be made in respect of road or licensing fees to the Zimbabwe National Road Administration”.
“Roads surrounding Marlborough area be and are hereby declared to be in a dilapidated state and in need of urgent maintenance,” reads part of the petition.
Ward 41 Councillor Kudzai Kadzombe, said residents registered their dismay over the state of the roads and is supporting the petition until the council take action.
“Residents are not happy with the amount of work being done on roads and lack of rehabilitation programs in the area,” she said .
The residents are taking precaution before the fast-approaching, the rainy season is here. They want the road to be rehabilitated.
“The rains are coming soon and all residents want is the allocation of ward 41 Road Fund. The petition seeks to compel government and ZINARA deliver on their mandate,” she said.
