BULAWAYO councillors have called for exemption on parking fees around residential flats and medical facilities in the city centre.

The city, through Tendy Three Investments (TTI) is charging US$1 per hour for parking.

According to the latest council report, Ward 12’s Councillor Lillian Mlilo kick-started the debate.

“The matter was considered and Councillor L. Mlilo highlighted that there was an outcry from the public concerning parking in health facilities.

” People were failing to attend to their medical issues for long avoiding being clamped. She was of the view that reserved parking should be availed in the centres,” read the report.
