More needs to be done Mayor

EDITOR — May I thank the outgoing mayor of Harare, Muchadeyi Masunda, for a job well done under very difficult circumstances.

And may I also congratulate the MDC for choosing Obert Gutu, a very promising talent as his successor?

Congratulations are due to the incoming mayor for the trust his party has in him.

It is a huge honour and responsibility to be the mayor of Harare.

I wish him and his team all the best.

May he dust the archives and see how Salisbury used to be funded and run?

Gutu must also follow up on where all taxes raised in Harare, be they corporate, VAT, vehicle licensing, or PAYE end up?

Harare’s revenue streams, such as from electricity and vehicle licensing, need to be re-established
I am also glad Gutu is on good terms with Ambassador Lin of China and has been to China.

A study of how major Chinese cities are funded, run and grown would be invaluable.

Going forward let us have some water boards to supply water on a cost recovery basis to both the Central Business District and residential areas and as soon as possible.
