MDC-T criticises Mutare town clerk for pledging allegiance to Zanu-PF

MDC-T Manicaland provincial spokesperson and Mutasa Central legislator, Trevor Saruwaka criticised Mutare town clerk Joshua Maligwa for publicly declaring allegiance to Zanu-PF.

Said Saruwaka:

Maligwa is digging his own grave, a man of his position ought to know better that his job doesn’t allow him to pronounce his political affiliation. It’s a public secret that all top council and government positions are packed by Zanu PF cardholders, but only the foolish ones openly beat their chest supporting the stinking association. Mutare’s poor performance is linked more to Zanu PF’s incompetence, ruinous policies, tolerance of corruption, favouritism and outright theft than anything else. I used to take Maligwa seriously, but now I know that instead of a town clerk we have a town clown running the show in Mutare. We are going to respond to the political shenanigans if he chooses to advance a Zanu PF agenda in our provincial capital.

MDC-T Manicaland chairman David Chimhini told NewsDay that the full council will ask Malingwa to respond and explain the circumstances that led to him publicly declaring his allegiance to Zanu-PF.
