Municipalities of major cities in Zimbabwe, Harare and Bulawayo are in a controversial debate of alternative burial method, cremation. Bulawayo recently announced, that it will be cremating children under the age of 10 years upon their parents’ consent, to save burial space.
Historic buildings in Harare that shape the city’s urban heritage are on the verge of collapse. Efforts to prevent further demolitions and alterations have been initiated but are these efforts going to hold back the forces of informality?
