Harare City Council has demolished new housing stands in Belvedere opposite the national sports stadium which they labelled as ‘illegal structures’.
The demolition is currently underway.

“We have a court order to remove illegal structures along the Bulawayo road opposite national sports stadium.

Mr Chideme was asked why they left the people built the structures at the first place and he said the council was busy seeking a court order and it takes time to be issued.
” It is council property. We were busy seeking a court order when they were building the houses, it takes time for the court order to be issued. He said
