HARARE NAMED CITY OF BOOZE

Harare mayor, Bernard Manyenyeni has blasted the local authorities for licensing more bottle stores at the expense of residential stands turning the capital into a a “booze city”.

Manyenyeni lamented that liquor stores were fast “becoming the only game in town at every shopping centre”, with council slacking on meaningful infrastructure development.

“Picking just a few spots like Highfield (pamaStones), Newlands (Murandy Square), Sunridge (Albury Road), Kuwadzana 6 (best Gango Place in Harare), Hillside (paHuku), Glen Norah, Marlborough (Civic Centre) – you can pick many others,” Manyenyeni said.

“On my suburban stroll yesterday we counted around 20 liquor outlets at pamaStones in Highfield. No new houses – so roughly the same population. As for Warren Park – (Mereki) I won’t even comment. This one is a ‘special economic zone’ for the breweries.

“These many liquor places don’t make a city a city, period.”

Manyenyeni suggested that the number of liquor stores should be reduced and the city should take an active stance against pollution.
