The ruling Zanu PF has been accused of hypocrisy by the MDC-Alliance which claims that it is paralysing operations at its led Harare City Council as it has a $25 million debt in rates.
MDC national executive member Sessel Zvidzai allegedly claimed on social media that Zanu PF instead of accusing the opposition of having run down the urban councils it should pay what it owes as that was crippling service delivery.
The MDC has also described as hogwash claims that they were behind land invasions in urban areas as evidence on the ground showed that most land barons belong to Zanu PF.
A council top official who preferred anonymity for fear of victimisation confirmed that Zanu PF owes millions to Harare.
“Yes the party owes more than $25 million to us in unpaid bills, but Zanu PF being Zanu PF no one dares to go there and talk about such an issue because the consequences maybe bad,” said the source.
Efforts to get a comment from Zanu PF spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo were futile as his phone was unreachable this morning.
A message suspected to have been created by MDC loyalists has since gone viral on social media platforms also naming some of the alleged Zanu PF land barons.
Below is the unedited message.
