FULL TEXT: By-election Results Do Not Affect Council Structures - Local Govt Minister

The Minister of Local Government and Public Works, July Moyo, has said the results of the 26 March 2022 by-elections do not affect leadership structures in local government authorities as the leadership that was in place prior to elections will continue. In a letter seen by Pindula News, addressed to all Mayors and chairpersons, Moyo said the recently held elections were not a general election, therefore, will never affect the leadership structures in local authorities. We present the letter below:

ALL MAYORS

ALL CHAIRPERSONS

EFFECT OF BY-ELECTION RESULTS ON COUNCIL STRUCTURES

The above matter refers.

Reference is made to the just recently concluded By-Elections conducted by ZEC wherein the results have been announced.

As I congratulate the new Councillors who have been elected, may I take this opportunity to remind councils that this was not a general election and as such the sitting Mayors, Deputy Mayors, Chairpersons of Committees and their deputies remain as constituted prior to the By-Election.

In terms of Section 114 of the Local Government Laws Amendment Act Number 8 of 2016, a Mayor, Deputy Mayor or Councillor can only be removed from his position through an independent tribunal or through Section 129 of the Constitution. You are therefore advised that your councils cannot reconstitute the leadership architecture in place unless there is a vacancy.

Be guided accordingly.

Opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) led by Nelson Chamisa won the majority of National Assembly and Local Government seats that were up for grabs in the 26 March by-elections.

Stop imposing mayors let the councillors vote as usual.
It is the President of ZW who called for by elections and the results must also taken seriously as a mandate to elect mayors
