MDC president Nelson Chamisa said that he expects Masvingo City mayor Collen Mabote to resign from his post. Mabote allegedly connived with ZANU PF councillors to become mayor while sidelining MDC’s preferred candidate. The party ordered Mabote to resign from his post but he has not yet done so.
Chamisa was displeased that the party’s decision was ignored. He said
He has not resigned? I was told he complied by the party’s decision to have him step down because he was not our candidate.
Nothing is going to change and I am going to find out what is going on because we cannot be having the same issue over and over again.
What Maboke did is unforgivable and we will not let it go just like that, he has to step down.
