In an interview with The Chronicle, Bulawayo Deputy Mayor Councillor Tinashe Kambarami confirmed he had resigned from the post after being ordered to do so by the MDC Alliance.
His enforced resignation paves way for fresh polls today amid claims he may be re-elected. Bulawayo MDC provincial chairperson Mr Gift Banda also confirmed Kambarami’s resignation. He also dismissed claims that Kambarami may be reelected. Said Banda:
The party had ordered him to resign and Tinashe tendered his resignation in front of the president (Nelson Chamisa). We had a meeting with the president today in the city. I don’t know who told you about that because there are processes that we are going to undertake as a party. I can’t confirm about a caucus meeting because we haven’t planned for it. I don’t want to pre-empt things but as a party we said Kambarami should resign because he was elected unprocedurally according to our party’s guidelines.
