A petition march against the Bulawayo Smart Parking System organised one Farai Kizito Manganda on Monday  against City of Bulawayo and its technical partner Tendy Three Investments (TTI) staged at Bulawayo City Hall car park flopped after only a handful of protestors turned up for the event.

The self-styled businessman had invited business persons in Bulawayo to join him in solidarity as he hands over a petition to the City Council seeking to have the global smart parking system suspended.

Manganda had claimed that BCC and TTI's parking fees were chasing people out of the Central Business District.

His team had printed banners which were anti-smart parking system and distributed them to the handful attendees but the police said the event was not a protest and therefore no banners must be carried.

Only four people were allowed to enter the City Hall offices to deliver the petition.

Meanwhile, the City of Bulawayo and its technical partner Tendy Three Investments  recently announced that they are organising an All Stakeholders Indaba to assess the needs of the motorists and the the broader residents of Bulawayo with an aim to give clarity on matters relating to the parking system.

The partnership between BCC and TTI has enabled the employment of more than 200 Bulawayo residents.

The entities recently donated foodstuffs to a number of disadvantaged families as part of the Corporate Social Responsibility on the part of TTI.

The beneficiaries were identified through the Council Social work system.
