The MDC-T have directed the blame for the Typhoid Crisis at Minister of Local Government Saviour Kasukuwere. This comes after Kasukuwere blamed vendors and the MDC-run Harare City Council. However, the MDC-T have hit back saying that Kasukuwere’s interference and political appointments at HCC are the cause of the rot.
MDC-T Secretary General Douglas Mwonzora said:
Kasukuwere must concentrate on making sure his ministry is well run. It is because of his failure to run the local government ministry that people are experiencing problems of typhoid in Harare.

His failure to run the ministry has resulted in the outbreak of typhoid in Harare. The City of Harare employees are appointed by government and these have failed to deliver.
Morgan Komichi, the MDC-T Vice Chairman also added:
Typhoid is not a food but a water-borne disease. Kasukuwere is a failure and meddles in council operations to induce and benefit from corruption at some of the councils. He runs the ministry of Local Government the Zanu PF way. He is at fault and should not be involved in council matters.
