Kasukuwere re-suspends Gweru councillors

Minster of Local Government  and Public Works, Saviour Kasukuwere has re-suspended the Gweru city councillors.  The councillors were due to start work on Monday after Kasukuwere had  withdrawn his appeal to the Supreme Court, conceding that he had no case.  The Coluncillors were served with fresh suspension letters yesterday by police officers.

Excerpts from Kasukuwere’s suspension letters read:

Pursuant to the investigations carried out at Gweru City Council in 2015, I, hereby, suspend you with immediate effect from the office of councillor for (respective ward) of Gweru City Council in terms of section 114(1)(c) of the Urban Councils Act (Chapter 29:15), as amended by section 3 of the Local Government Laws Amendment Act, Number 8 of 2016.

During the period September 26, 2013 to April 22, 2013 you, in common purpose with fellow councillors at Fairmile Hotel and at the mayor’s parlour, caused council to incur irregular and fruitless expenditure by double expending council funds to the tune of $6 907,50 on beverages for several meetings held on the same day.
