Business and residents representatives in Marondera say they are in support of council’s move to decongest the Central Bussiness District (CBD) by unveiling a new bus terminus and vendors stalls.
Council has unveiled the area along First Street with the local authority yet to start relocating the vendors.
Marondera Urban Bussiness Association (MUBA) chairperson Carlos Pindire said council has been losing potential revenue hence the need to decongest the CBD.
“We need to stop vultures and hyenas from taking advantage of the situation on ground to abuse the local authority by using the resources as campaign zones yet later it affects life of the majority.
“We need to sanitise our town, to clean our city by bringing order,” he said.
Marondera Residents Forum (MRF) director Cephas Mazambani said they are in support of the new move by council.
“We want the pirate taxis to use the new First Street rank as we bring order to the city.
“Council has to earn revenue at the same time residents getting quality service,” he said.
Marondera CBD has seen an influx of illegal vendors and pirate taxis who most of the time play cat and mouse games with both council cops and police officers.
