Regularization Of Informal Settlements In Urban Areas: The Case Of Epworth Surburb In Harare

The government has started to regularize informal settlements in urban areas.

In April, President Emmerson Mnangagwa gave about two hundred homeowners title deeds to legalize their properties. The event was held a year after Mnangagwa had pledged to Epworth residents in March 2022 during a by-election campaign.

Lynette Manzini interviewed Combined Harare Residents Association Programs Manager Reuben Akili to find out if this was a good move and what needs to be done to improve access to service delivery in Epworth.
