Kasukuwere wants to introduce urban tollgates to fix potholes

Minister of Local Government Savior Kasukuwere, wants to introduce tollgates in urban centres.  He believes this is the only way of solving the dilapidated road networks.  Potholes have now become the major characteristic of  Zimbabwean towns.

Addressing journalists yesterday  Kasukuwere said:

I think we also need to consider the issue of urban tollgates to raise funds and the money should go towards road rehabilitation … that is increasing the revenue base. But first our local authorities must improve on their priority list; I am talking about dealing with service delivery here. In the past we have seen councillors who focus on personal enrichment at the expense of service delivery.

Also we need a discussion around urban tollgates, it’s not a new thing, and it has been done elsewhere. People need to appreciate that there are some vehicles that do not leave Harare and expect the roads to be maintained using tollgates fees, so we need to have the same concept within urban centres so that those vehicles that do not leave our cities, but expect the roads to be rehabilitated could also contribute
