Bulawayo City Council repossesses properties acquired fraudulently by councillors

Speaking to Sunday News, Bulawayo City Council spokesperson, Mrs Nesisa Mpofu confirmed that councillors have either payed for or surrendered properties they acquired fraudulently. She also said that the local governing authority had repossessed properties of those that failed to pay what they owed.

Said Mpofu:

Following the recommendations from the ministry, some councillors surrendered the stands or leases, some councillors made payment plans with the financial director, some arranged for stop orders from their allowances. We have repossessed for those that have not done any of the above-mentioned while a few councillors who had made applications were stopped and these were not finalised because of the Government directive. Council has also been communicating with the parent ministry on the progress of the recommendations set out in the tribunal.
