IN PICS: Harare Streets Flooded Because Of Poor Drainage

The streets of Harare were flooded on Monday after a hailstorm.

Users on trhe microblogging site Twitter exposed the incompetence of the Harare City Council after showing images of the streets flooded. It wasn’t as if it was a special amount of rain either. It is just incredibly poor planning by a bloated and overpaid system.

Yes the rains were heavy but they lasted roughly an hour and half.

Some shops had to close due to flooding resulting in water getting into their premises. An example was OK on Nkwame Nkrumah.

You would have thought a cyclone had hit our parts.
