Recalled Gweru Mayor Retains Council Seat As A CCC Candidate

Recalled Gweru Mayor Retains Council Seat As A CCC Candidate

Former Gweru mayor, Josiah Makombe, has been re-elected councillor a few months after he was recalled by the Douglas Mwonzora-led MDC-T.

Makombe was recalled in December last year for supporting Nelson Chamisa who was the leader of the then MDC Alliance.

The recall meant that Makombe lost his position as both councillor and mayor and the city council vehicle that he was using.

In the by-election for Gweru’s Ward 2 held on Saturday, Makombe, who contested on a Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) ticket, garnered 940 votes against ZANU PF’s Tinarwo Elager who got 492 votes.

Mwonzora’s MDC Alliance candidate Patson Chingwaru received a meagre 20 votes.

Makombe was arrested early this year after he allegedly refused to surrender a luxurious US$170 000 council Prado that he was using as mayor before his recall.

Gweru District Development Coordinator (DDC) Ndeya Nyede said Makombe acted outside council regulations by clinging to the municipality vehicle.

Gvnment is doing a massive transfer of police who served 5years in a station e transferred its one of the strategy used by Zanu pf to reduce votting from Police camps ,ccc had won resulndingly on most urban camps for axample muchikurubi,manyame air base,hre central police camp ,

Harare have 50 000 police officers statistucally 42 000 ppl voted for an opposition inshort police yose ndeye opposition,Right transfering means a police will not be able to vote from the area they have registered,we are saying aBindura policemen is now working in mazoe ,when they are in Mazoe they will be assighned to be a plolling agent or an ellection observer automatically they wont have time to vote to their area they have registered A lot of families are going to be inconvinienced.I smell a rat,The Junta might have been shocked with the by-election outcome.I was fortunate not to have served for the Government under this New Dispensation.

It's a free platform. You could volunteer to consistently delete all tribalistic comments pa every article inopostwa. It's a job rinotora nguva refu isingaite. It's useless. Why would they do that for, kuti iwewe uverenge mushe usina kana cent rauri kubudisa. Hmmm, zvimwe zvacho ngatinyarei. The only problem is mthwakazi republic. He's an ****, a diabolic person who doesn't want peace and collective calmness in the comment section. He's an attention seeking individual. Musiyei.

Saka varume nevakadzi vakuru vanotobuda maSperms nekuzvarisa are wasting their time here on a free platform and making alot of noise vachiita zveGrade 1. @mthwakazi Republic and @youngacademic haa grow up. Busy flooding our comments with your back and forth вullѕhít. Stop with this tribalist bullcrap, taneta nazvo. Not even one of you chose to be Shona or Ndebele, let alone Zimbabwean, it's fate. I wonder why muri kunetsana apa vanhu vacho vakaurayiwa ne Zanu PF, blame Zanu not Shona people directly. Shona people as extensive as they're had no control over what Zanu PF was doing at that time. So shut up and please keep wuiequiet. We want sensible human beings on this platform not childish banter, grow up. And that guy akanzi Street Lawyer or please shut up, hauzi kunakidza, you're bland. You're views are not noteworthy, nyarara hatinei nazvo.
