PDP Recalls Bulawayo Ward 24 Councillor Arnold Batirai

The Lucia Matibenga-led People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has recalled Bulawayo Ward 24 councillor Arnold Batirai from council.

Local Government and Public Works Minister July Moyo notified the Bulawayo City Council (BCC) in a letter dated 29 March 2022.

PDP said Batirai had ceased to be a member of the party after he joined the Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) led by Nelson Chamisa.

Moyo said in terms of section 278 (1) of the Constitution of Zimbabwe, as read with Section (1) (K), Ward 24 is now vacant. He wrote:

I wish to inform you that I am in receipt of a letter from the People’s Democratic Party stating that the following Councillor has ceased to be a member of the Party through automatic termination of their membership as they have since joined Citizen Coalition for Change (CCC).

In terms of section 121 of the Electoral Act, please proceed to inform the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) of this vacancy.

The PDP also recalled former Harare Mayor Jacob Mafume this week.
