Zanu-PF has resolved to recall two Chiredzi Town Councillors for violating the party’s constitution.
The two were found guilty of voting MDC-Alliance councillor as council chair. Zanu-PF controls four wards in Chiredzi town to the MDC-Alliance’s three, with one more ward under the control of an independent candidate. Zanu-PF candidate Blessing Mazinyane lost the Chiredzi town council chairmanship to MDC-Alliance’s Gibson Hwende by five votes to three.
Zanu-PF Masvingo Provincial Coordinating Committee (PCC) resolved to recall Councillors Obert Ngwenya (Ward 2) and Josphat Nzombe (Ward 8) after they were found guilty of having violated the party’s constitution by working with the opposition in Chiredzi Town Council. The decision to recall the pair now awaits approval of the Zanu-PF National Disciplinary Committee. If the disciplinary committee upholds Masvingo PCC’s decision, the party will inform the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission, paving way for council by-elections in the two wards.
