Newly appointed Harare Mayor Hebert Gomba came under fire from Zimbabwe Combined Residents and Ratepayers Association.Ziccora has accused Gomba of making inflammatory and reckless statements when the Harare Mayor said the central government and Zanu PF should take responsibility for the cholera outbreak.
Ziccora president Stephen Nyabvure said Gomba’s statements were ill-informed and ill-timed, saying instead of engaging in blame games with the Zanu PF government, the mayor should mobilise stakeholders to chip-in and curb the outbreak.

It’s a disgrace to hear such comments from a figure like him. He is our hope and to hear him make such utterances is bad for the society. Playing blame-game is over as people are dying and such comments will only fuel tension between the central government and Harare City Council. Cholera is not targeting Zanu PF or MDC members, but it’s affecting everyone, so we need all stakeholders to come and work together to fight this disease. He has shown to us that he is putting politics ahead of people’s lives. It is his mandate to solve issues affecting Harare. Both parties should stop playing blame-games but should join hands in saving people’s lives. The same happened in 2008 and if they don’t look back, a lot of people will die again.
