Uncovering the Geo Pomona Controversy in Harare

by Motoni Olodun

Harare, Zimbabwe – A specter from the past looms large over Harare as the contentious Geo Pomona deal resurfaces, casting a shadow of uncertainty over the Harare City Council. The deal, mired in controversy, has once again drawn scrutiny, stirring debate and concern among residents.


The agreement, initially signed in 2020, was intended to pave the way for the development of a satellite city in Pomona, just outside Harare. However, allegations of corruption and lack of transparency have dogged the project since its inception. Critics argue that the deal heavily favored private interests over the public good, raising questions about accountability and ethical governance.


In recent developments, investigations into the deal have uncovered discrepancies and irregularities, fueling calls for a thorough inquiry. Concerns have been raised regarding the allocation of land, procurement processes, and the overall management of the project. The revelations have reignited public outrage and intensified pressure on authorities to address the matter promptly.


Harare City Council officials have found themselves embroiled in a political quagmire, grappling with the fallout from the Geo Pomona debacle. The controversy has eroded trust in local government institutions and highlighted the need for greater transparency and oversight.


Despite the challenges, there remains a glimmer of hope for accountability and reform. Civil society organizations, activists, and concerned citizens are rallying together to demand justice and accountability. Calls for greater transparency, public participation, and ethical governance are growing louder, signaling a groundswell of support for change.


As Harare confronts its past, there is an opportunity to forge a new path forward – one rooted in integrity, accountability, and the public interest. The Geo Pomona saga serves as a stark reminder of the importance of upholding democratic principles and ensuring that public resources are used judiciously for the benefit of all.
