A bid to terminate a contract given to a clamping company by the Municipality of Marondera has hit a brick wall after the local authority lost the case in the courts.
Council was forced to terminate its contract with ZEMQOS following an outcry by residents and motorists.
The residents complained that clamping officials were harrassing and extorting them.
The contract was terminated on October 21.
However the company approached the courts which ruled in their favour.
In a statement to residents, Ward 10 councilor Jimmy Jalifu confirmed that ZEMQOS has resumed it’s clamping operations after winning the High Court case.
“We notified you about the termination of contract of (ZEMQOS), the company which was carrying clamping responsibilities in Marondera town.
“The termination of the contract was done under a council resolution.
“After that, the company filed an urgent application to High Court against the same matter.
“Consequently, the High Court ruled for the reinstatement of ZEMQOS, awaiting for the resolution of the matter by an arbitrator,” said Jalifu.
Meanwhile, Marondera residents are plotting to hold a demonstration against the clamping company accusing its officials of massive abuse and unprofessionalism.
