Demolitions halted...for now


...."The demolition of illegal structures has been temporarily suspended with Government giving owners of such structures 10 working days - starting on Monday - to regularise them with council," the Herald said.

"Operators of unlicensed business ventures - including those who have converted their homes into offices or for other purposes - should promptly have them licensed and take immediate steps to pay the relevant taxes with the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority," it added.

The announcement offers temporary relief to residents in Harare's once prosperous suburbs who had started pulling down their own home-based kiosks after police warned their crackdown on illegal structures would be extended to new areas....

Sounds like they read my previous post saying they could make more money by taking bribes (aka "relavant taxes") than by just trearing them down...
