MASVINGO – The Minister of State for Masvingo Ezra Chadzamira has expressed concern over the 500% tariff hikes put into effect by Masvingo City Council two weeks ago and he is meeting officials from the local authority this afternoon.

There has been a public outcry and sporadic demonstrations against the rates.

“I am engaging Masvingo City management this afternoon to discuss the increase in tariffs,” said Chadzamira.

Water tariffs for example rose from an average RTGS$600 for some households to RTGS$5 000.
