The City of Harare
The Harare City Council is an administrative body tasked with providing services for residence of Harare, the capital city of Zimbabwe. Among other duties, the council is responsible for providing clean drinking water, housing and accomodation, refuse collection facilities and health services.
The city of Harare evolved from the City of Salisbury which existed in colonial Rhodesia. After the country's independence, the former was replaced by the Harare City Council in 1980. Salisbury as a settlement had been established in 1890 by a group of mercenaries called the Pioneer Column which worked for the British South Africa Company led by Cecil Rhodes.
