Residents Castigate Khupe For ‘Crippling Service Delivery’

The Combined Harare Residents Association (CHRA) has condemned the recalls of MDC Alliance Councillors by the MDC-T led by Thokozani Khupe saying the move has crippled service delivery in the city.

CHRA argued that the recall of the councillors has resulted in a leadership vacuum and the sidelining of residents from issues that directly affect them. The organisation said:

The recalls come at a time when Council has closed more than thirty clinics with a massive job action looming next week among the health personnel in the local authority.

The new wave of recalls has created a leadership vacuum at the community level with residents pushed to the periphery of local governance.

CHRA has since called for a National Convergence among Residents Associations and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) over the matter alleging it has become a nationwide issue.

The judicially-created MDC-T has so far recalled 21 councillors in Harare, among them the mayor Herbert Gomba and his deputy Enoch Mupamawonde.
