Ratepayers lose out in refuse privatisation

STATEMENTS from Harare City Council show that we pay for refuse collection every month.



However, as I wrote late last month (January 26) refuse in Marlboroug

h East had only been collected twice yet at the end of the month some company was due to collect a full month’s payment even though it had clearly not delivered in terms of the agreement under which it won the tender from the council.



I have never been totally convinced by arguments of privatisation or farming out council work to the private sector because the main beneficiaries under such circumstances are largely the private companies and not the ratepayers.


T Mhofu,

Harare.
