Call to remove graves
27 November 2018
NATIONAL Museums and Monuments are appealing to anyone who may have relatives’ remains buried in the Mabvuku area marked for residential stands to approach their offices.
The appeal follows an application by Pure Gold Housing Trust to Harare City Council and the department of National Museums and Monuments to undertake the removal, rescue and relocation of human remains located at some of the residential stands.
“Any person claiming to have obligations to the approval of such an application is hereby required to lodge the same in writing to the executive director of the department of national museums and monuments at 107 Rotten Row, Harare or the director of housing and community services at Remembrance Drive, read the notice published under Cemeteries Act Chapter 5:04.”
Pure Gold Housing Trust projects director John Museve confirmed the application saying 2500 home seekers are set to benefit from the land.
“We applied to the City of Harare since we engage them in everything we do in connection with residential stands in Harare so as other councils in various towns where we have our projects,” said Museve.
“We have already pegged the stands and opening of roads has since started and sewer and water pipes will be laid soon after the roads,” he said.
