Harare Councillors Fail To Elect New Mayor

Harare Councillors Fail To Elect New Mayor

Harare City Council councillors failed to elect a new mayor for the city on Tuesday after a scheduled full council meeting was aborted at the eleventh hour.

Some MDC Alliance councillors boycotted the meeting, with some reports claiming that there was a plan to elevate acting mayor Stewart Mutizwa to fill the vacant post before the swearing-in of 28 CCC councillors on Thursday.

Chamber secretary Warren Chiwawa said that only 12 councillors attended, therefore, the meeting was postponed to Wednesday or Thursday.

Meanwhile, ZANU PF councillor for Mbare Ward 4 Martin Matinyanya criticised the absentee councillors for allegedly not taking council business seriously. He said:

This is the third time a meeting has been aborted because people are not sitting in for the meetings.

These same people are Nelson Chamisaโ€™s puppets and do not consider poor services residents are receiving.

Harare service delivery is at a standstill, we need to improve yet other councillors are boycotting such important meetings.

These same councillors who are absent today are never late or absent from a workshop because they are very good at collecting per-diems.

The City of Harare will elect a new mayor to replace Jacob Mafume who was recalled by the Peopleโ€™s Democratic Party (PDP).

Mafume was elected Harare mayor after Herbert Gomba was recalled by the MDC Alliance.
