Addressing Mutare’s new Councillors, Mutare district administrator Wilson Boore advised them to serve the people and not enrich themselves.
Boore also warned the Councillors against taking their MDC Alliance matters into council chambers.Said Boore:
You did not come here to enrich yourselves, you should now take the task and responsibility of serving the people. You should also discuss and contribute on issues that benefit council, its stakeholders and ratepayers. Political games ended with the July 30 election and you cannot continue advancing political issues that have nothing to do with council business and we should now put across the demands of the people in your wards.
Blessing Tandi was elected Mutare mayor unopposed on Thursday. Councillor Kudakwashe Chisango from the MDC Alliance was also elected unopposed as the new deputy mayor.
