Scott Sakupwanya Voted As Councillor of The Year

ZANU PF ward 21 councillor for Mabvuku, Scott Sakupwanya, who is a well-known gold buyer, was voted as the 2022 Councillor of The Year in Harare Metropolitan Province.

Harare Metropolitan provincial secretary Tafadzwa Muguti said Sakupwanya had changed the face of Mabvuku.

Over the weekend, Harare Metropolitan held its inaugural provincial awards, which honoured residents, businesspersons and people who excelled in the fields of arts, sports and others in 2022.

Addressing stakeholders at the awards ceremony, Muguti said:

Many people are wondering how Sakupwanya won the award. Mabvuku was one of the dirtiest places and a councillor went there and bought refuse compactors.

He has been drilling boreholes using his own funds. We want to encourage people to start to know their councillors. We need to hold them to account.

Meanwhile, the Ruwa Local Board won three awards at the inaugural Harare Metropolitan provincial awards.

The local authority bagged three awards for best Harare Metropolitan Council, its mayor Kizito Chivafa was honoured as best mayor, and the board also got the top investment award.

Speaking to NewsDay, Ruwa Local Board town secretary Kumbirai Madanhi said:

It is hard to put this feeling into words. Nevertheless, we are very ecstatic and glad that our hard work and resilience have put us above the rest.

We believe in zero tolerance for corruption and have emphasised daily to our councillors, management and operatives that all and sundry must comply with the legislative framework.

Chivafa said he always championed due diligence and transparency among the nine Ruwa Local Board councillors. He said:

I always encourage due diligence and transparency among us. Our stakeholders are the most important sector, hence the need to satisfy them, and it has to be driven by passion, constant internal audits and yearly external audits help us to restrain from corruption.

People who use personal funds to help the community usually remain silent. If he won because he used his own funds then we would say that he bought the vote. What happened is like voting for manager of the year the manager (not the even the director or owner), who used his personal funds to run the company.
