Bulawayo province is distancing itself from renewal of the Town Clerk’s contract. The position of the party was that the job is floated and those with the relevant qualifications apply. We will not endorse the renewal of the contract of the Town Clerk as he is linked to Zanu-PF.
As a result, those behind the renewal of the Town Clerk’s contract will not be allowed to access the provincial offices until they reverse that decision
These are some of the people who have been blocked from accessing party offices:
- Clr Mguni (the mayor)
- Clr Mlandu Ncube (finance and development),
- Sikhululekile Moyo (Future water supplies and water action),
- Lilian Mlilo (Health, Housing and Education),
- Earnest Rafomoyo (Environmental management and engineering services)
- Pilate Moyo (Town lands and planning)
