The main opposition party, Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC), has promised to construct spaghetti roads and bring bullet trains if they are elected into power next year.
The promise comes after motorists and commuters cry foul on increased congestion on pick hours, as well as the shortage of public transport to ferry commuters to and from work.
Commuters are currently relying on the old model Zimbabwe United Passenger Company (ZUPCO) trains and buses as supplementary transport.
In response to the transport and congestion challenges yesterday, CCC spokesperson Fadzai Mahere told journalists and Harare residents gathered in Harare on a Zimbabwe Union of Journalists (ZUJ) press club discussion on the state of preparedness as the country nears 2023 elections that the public must vote for the yellow movement in their numbers to enjoy an efficient transport system and luxury houses after 2023 elections.
Mahere added that the main opposition cannot campaign by promising to build houses for citizens because of financial constraints.
She further responded to a question asked by a 263Times reporter about how the party can fail to build houses for citizens if its leader Nelson Chamisa was on record, promising spaghetti roads and bullet trains to Zimbabwe, insisting the party will develop the country if they win power and become the government.
“Yes, for now it’s difficult for us to promise that we can build houses, but the time will come when CCC will be the ruling party. That’s when we will combat corruption and construct spaghetti roads, which were recently promised by advocate Nelson Chamisa,” she said.
Despite CCC promises, the government has resurfaced other urban roads in Harare, like Robert Mugabe and the Seke Road, after citizens had come guns, blazing on the poor state of roads.
Meanwhile, the government is working with private companies to construct the Mbudzi interchange with Zanu Pf, encouraging citizens to remain steadfast and ignore what it describes as “economic saboteurs.”
Zimbabwe will hold general elections next year.
