New Harare Councillors Take Oath Of Office

New Harare Councillors Take Oath Of Office

Twenty-three (23) new Harare City Council Councillors were sworn in on Thursday, with former mayor Herbert Gomba set to be sworn in this Friday.

The swearing-in of the councillors follows the holding of by-elections countrywide on 26 March to fill vacancies created by recalls, deaths and diplomatic postings since the 2018 general elections.

After the swearing-in ceremony, CCC’s Denford Ngadziore moved a motion to hold mayoral elections within 24 hours to replace Jacob Mafume who was recalled by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). Said Ngadziore:

Since Mafume’s recall, there was no properly constituted full council meeting to elect the mayor. Under those circumstances, it’s the duty of the full council to do that.

That’s why we have called for an urgent special council meeting. There are urgent issues that need the attention of the mayor.

The motion was seconded by Kudzai Kadzombe.
