Binga North MDC-T MP Prince Dubeko Sibanda has called for the dismissal of Binga Rural District chief executive officer Joshua Muzamba saying he is now ineligible to hold the office because he was now a Zanu PF central committee member.
Sibanda told the Bulawayo High Court that Muzamba’s continued holding of a public office, while at the same time being a Zanu PF central committee member was unconstitutional. He made the remarks through his lawyer Matshobane Ncube before Judge Justice Martin Makonese when he was seeking the removal of Muzamba as CEO. He cited Muzamba and the council as the first and second respondents respectively.
Justice Makonese reserved judgment indefinitely. The constitution of Zimbabwe does not allow employees of local authorities to hold office in a political party.
