"Heads Will Roll," Muguti Warns "Corrupt" Harare Councillors

Secretary for Provincial Affairs and Devolution for Harare Metropolitan Province Tafadzwa Muguti said that the Government will deal decisively with Harare City Council officials corruptly acquiring land and selling it to line their pockets.

Muguti was responding to a Twitter post by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Nick Mangwana.

Mangwana had alleged that CCC councillors bought land at 10 cents ($0.10) per square metre for an Industrial stand in Glaudina.

Muguti bemoaned corruption at the local authority saying graft had reached “disgusting levels.” He said:

We have been witnessing massive land sales even in wetlands. When I engaged the Mayor [Jacob Mafume] he also expressed concern.

We will get to the bottom of this and find out who did what and when. I can promise that we will deal decisively with all those who cut corners to enrich themselves.

We will not leave any stone unturned as we seek the truth. The level of corruption in the [Harare City Council] has reached exhaustion and disgusting levels.

The land is easily sold off including wetlands with no change of use. Heads will roll that I can promise.

Last week a report by The Herald claimed that CCC and MDC Alliance councillors, working in cahoots with top council officials, were buying commercial and industrial stands for as little as US$60 and reselling them at more than US$120 000.

I dont remember them using tax payers money.
Also we once lost 15 billion yema diamonds 3 billion pa agriculture and some more funds in different sectors but someone with your thinking always applause when they do that. 43 years people looting tax payers money and sabotaging some developments in the economy, yet you blame CCC.
Well until we all open our eyes and see a spade as a spade that's when Zim will start to change.

Corruption is now official in Zimbabwe, look how the first family's son has been slapped with the dreaded targeted sanctions just a few days before the New Year. So whose head will roll?

Harare has a parallel municipality which is parceling out land especially Harare South which is on going.Harare Land barons have even gone further as Chitungwiza municipal area jurisdiction


While some of my colleagues say CCC Councillors are corrupt, I want to urge Tafadzwa Mugwadi to approach this issue with a level head.

Yes, some of the issues are correct while others are not genuine.

I urge His Worship Mayor Jacob Mafume to supervise his juniors closely.



Yours faithfully

Vamwe mahypocrites, vanongomhanyira patwitter kuti they are disgusted necorruption but every area in zimbabwe their foot soildiers parcel out land in their party's name. Shame on them. The only agenda they keep a blind eye to that is because they want to neutralise a certain
Strong political party that is headed for a triumphant Victory in 2023.Surely we cannot be silent when our country is now a den of vendors. It simply shows a deficit in sound leadership. No tap water for many residential areas. No amount of politicking can blind us to the truth that it is because of the gvt there is no water. During the GNU when there was a stable multi currency water was available. Its just simple when the national economy catches a cold everything underneath sneezes. There no jobs. These so called created jobs where have they been created. The little jobs we have they are underpaying workers unless you are a civil servant of course. Civil servants rights are they too important than others? The unemployed are the taxpayers who provide for their salaries and yet they are taxed to the teeth. Who really cares for them? By so analysing do the correct thing vote CCC for real jobs, more electricity, better salaries and stable currency, mental health. Good future for our children.
