The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) condemns in the strongest terms the decision by the Harare City Council to bar commuters from entering the city center and relocating bus terminuses to the periphery of the city.

This highly unpopular and insensitive move was done without consulting stakeholders and has seriously inconvenienced workers and other commuters. More so, workers have to cough extra money to get into the city center.
