Former Bulawayo deputy mayor takes Kasukuwere to court claiming unfair dismissal

Former Bulawayo deputy mayor Gift Banda has taken local government minister Saviour Kasukuwere and the tribunal which recommended his dismissal to court claiming that he was dismissed unfairly.

In an application filed at Bulawayo High Court on 30 May, Banda cites Kasukuwere, members of the tribunal; Hilda Makusha Moyo, Midard Khumalo and Lucy Manhokwe; and the city council as respondents. Banda wants the tribunal to avail the full and complete record of proceedings in the disciplinary hearing held against him on December 13 and 14, 2016 within five working days. He wants to be reinstated as councillor for Ward 5 in Bulawayo and deputy mayor if the tribunal fails to avail the record. The respondents are yet to respond to the application.

Banda was charged for abusing his position as deputy mayor and councillor to acquire a residential stand measuring 3,5 hectares in Ascot and acquiring a lease for stand 187964 in Bulawayo on behalf of Entertainment Headquarters without going to tender.
