Bulawayo Councillors Agree To Resident’s Request To Declare Assets

Bulawayo councillors have given in to a request by the Bulawayo Progressive Residents’ Association (BPRA) to declare their assets.

Councillors Rodney Jele (Ward 22) and Arnold Batirai (Ward 24) handed over their list of assets to the BPRA leadership last week. The assets were not announced to the residents that had gathered at Nkulumane Hall. The councillors said they were waiting for their parent party, MDC-Alliance to give them the go ahead. They said the MDC Alliance leadership advised them to wait until next month for undisclosed reasons. Said Councillor Jere:

I’m not going to announce today because I haven’t been given the permission to do so. You all know that I come from a political party, which has not given us the green light to do so. We have been told just to make our declarations in writing. BPRA wrote to us requesting that we declare our assets. So as a sign of commitment towards that pledge I am handing over a list containing the number of assets I have. The party will only allow us to declare our assets after 8 December. That’s when I will announce publicly the assets I have. I hope the other councillors will also do the same considering that this programme of declaring assets is voluntary.
