MDC To Discipline Councillor For Accusing Leadership Of Meddling In Nomination Of Chitungwiza Mayor

MDC-Alliance organising secretary for Chitungwiza Mr Rangarirai Mutingwende promised to institute disciplinary measures against Darlingtone Musonza who accused the coalition’s leadership of meddling in the selection of a mayor.

Councillor Gift Tsverere was elected Chitungwiza mayor. The Herald reports MDC Alliance councillors and supporters in Chitungwiza preferred former deputy mayor Councillor Goodwill Mushangwe for the mayoral post. Mushangwe withdrew his candidature before voting began. Said Mutingwende:

We did not condone the behaviour exhibited by some councillors, especially Darlingtone Musonza, who castigated the party’s leadership, accusing it of foul play in the nomination of the mayor. We are going to take disciplinary measures, we also had two of our councillors who voted for a Zanu-PF candidate, it does not make sense at all.

The Herald reports MDC Alliance senior members who included Mr Voice Chinake, Morgan Femai, Mr Dickson Tarusenga and Mr Job Sikhala refused to vacate the chamber to pave way for the election of a mayor, reportedly to ensure Nelson Chamisa’s preferred candidate won by intimidating the councillors.
