Chitungwiza mayor Phillip Mutoti, and his town clerk, George Makunde have been summoned to appear in court to answer to charges of fraudulently allocating a residential stand to the mayor’s four-year old son, Nathan. The pair are expected to appear in court on 25 April.
The scam was unearthed after an internal audit into housing stands allocation and it showed that the local council was prejudiced of about $5,000 in the scam which took place in 2015. The audit also implicated Zanu PF councillor, Charamba Mlambo for acquiring 41 residential stands between 2 July and 3 November 2015.
After the internal audit report was released, the Chitungwiza Residents Trust (CHITREST), appealed to local government minister, Saviour Kasukuwere and the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission to probe the town’s senior officials for illegally acquiring residential stands.
