Last week, the City of Harare attempted to destroy Moto Republik, a tech and arts hub in Harare citing reasons that the structure is illegal. According to reports, the demolition of the hub was stopped by Harare Mayor, His Worship Bernard Manyenyeni. Despite the demolition having been stopped by the Mayor, the Harare City Council still issued the Moto Republik team with an ultimatum to demolish the ‘illegal’ structure by Wednesday the 15th of March 2017.
