Former ZESA workers face eviction in Kariba

Zesa Buildig

Former ZESA workers face eviction in Kariba. The families were given three months’ notice due to end on 30 September 2021. The Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (ZESA) has served at least 18 families in Kariba with eviction notices to vacate the houses belonging to the parastatal that they are living in.

The ultimatum to leave the properties has thrown most families, including those headed by pensioners, in a fix as they do not have alternative accommodation. ZESA subsidiary, the Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) terminated the lease agreements with the beneficiaries of the houses owing to an accommodation crisis it is facing. Reads one of the eviction notices:

Please be advised that the station is currently facing accommodation challenges. We have, therefore, resolved to repossess house number H28B Fort Jameson by 30 September 2021.

Efforts by NewZimbabwe.com to get a comment from ZESA proved fruitless by the time of publishing. However, those facing eviction accused the parastatal management of inhumane treatment of former employees and tenants.

Residents association chairperson, Samu Mawawo further accused the ZPC management of violating basic human rights relating to shelter. Said Mawawo: They are breaking human rights law against their pensioners and long-serving tenants to whom the ZPC has been leasing these properties.

In Kariba Town, it is a known fact that accommodation is a problem, and issuing someone with an eviction notice is a nightmarish experience for the recipient.
