Chitungwiza Town Council has ordered the construction of an industrial structure which is been undertaken by MDC vice-chairperson, Job Sikhala to be put on hold.
According to the letter addressed to Sikhala by Chitungwiza acting town clerk, Tonderai Kasu says the legislator is contravening the Regional, Town and City Planning Act.
The statement reads, “It appears to the Chitungwiza Municipality that development is being carried out in contravention of the Regional, Town and City Planning Act,”
“Construction of a building without adequate paperwork attesting to the fact that you are in lawful occupation of the said piece of land. Failure to comply with adequate public safety measures.”
Meanwhile, the said illegal industrial structure is opposite the administration offices of Chitungwiza municipality in Zengeza 2.
The order is set to come to effect on 17 August 2020 unless Sikhala appeals against the order.
