Mthwakazi Restoration Wants Bulawayo Deputy Mayor Removed From Office

1893 Mthwakazi Restoration Movement Trust has approached the High Court seeking an order nullifying the election of Bulawayo deputy mayor Councillor Tinashe Kambarami as ward councillor saying he is a convict.

Through its lawyer Mr Godfrey Nyoni of Moyo and Nyoni Legal Practitioners, Mthwakazi filed a court application at the Bulawayo High Court citing Kambarami, Bulawayo City Council, Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) and MDC as respondents. Mthwakazi wants Kambarami’s nomination and subsequent election as councillor for Ward 3 in Bulawayo to be declared null and void because Kambarami was convicted for stealing an extension cord from an electrician he had hired to do manual work at his offices. Their argument is based on section 119 (2) (e) of the Electoral Act which disqualifies a convicted person from being nominated as a candidate for council elections.
