Speaking at a council budget consultative meeting with business on Monday, town clerk Joshua Maligwa said heads are set to roll at Mutare City Council after a forensic audit instituted last year.
Maligwa said 90 percent of council employees were corrupt and the report implicated many workers, including those in management. Said Maligwa:
About 90 percent of the 1 300 people here (at council) are involved in shady deals. The forensic land audit is ready and about to be presented to council. There are so many heads which are going to roll. The report is bad news for the city, but once its handed over to council, we will be taking action.
