Chitungwiza Municipality says it has cut ties with Clyna Trading, a company it had contracted in March 2013 to offer electronic billing services.
The billing services by Clyna Trading included the collection of fees, rentals and other applicable rates for motor vehicles within the jurisdiction of the municipality.
However, the five-year-long flirtation officially ended last year which means Clyna had been operating illegally after the lapse of the contract.
In a notice to its residents, Chitungwiza Municipality said all payments should now be done through the council and not Clyna Trading.
“We would like to inform the general public that our e-tolling contract with the aforementioned was terminated.
“Any payments for rank discs, delivery permit and operators permit should be done through Chitungwiza Municipality,” reads part of the notice.
In an interview with Open Council, Clyna Trading managing director Clyde Makusha confirmed the development but was quick to point out that his relationship with the municipality was not frosty.
“We have handed over everything to Chitungwiza Municipality, we are in good books with the council and we are not fighting,” he said.
Chitungwiza residents welcomed the move saying that Clyna was giving them nightmares especially the motorist in the town.
Chitungwiza Residents Trust director Diana Kuvheya applauded the council for the decision which said was a well-informed move as the company was fleecing residents.
