Churches in Bulawayo..

At least sixteen Church buildings in the city of Bulawayo have been marked for demolition in the city for not adhering to the local authority’s building standards.

The Bulawayo City Council (BCC) issued demolition notices to residents who failed to comply with the city’s model building by-laws.

In its latest council report, BCC revealed that about 16 churches, mostly in Cowdray Park and Entumbane high-density suburbs were issued with demolition notices. The report read:

Many abandoned factories and warehouses in Bulawayo have been converted to makeshift churches

The department of housing and community services has carried out routine inspections around the city.

Some of the churches marked for demolition are Tabernacles of God, Marimba Church of God, Bethesda Church of Zion, Masimba Apostolic Church, Sangano Revapositori Church and Jesus Promotion Ministries, among others.
