I am part of the local government cluster where we have started looking closely at the operations of our councillors since 2018, we are focusing on issues to do with service delivery taking for example housing delivery where we discovered that some residents have been on the housing waiting list since the 1980s. We are serious about this exercise that we are even targeting our members who have left council, where if we find them to have engaged in corrupt activities during their time in office, we will surely be descending on them
This came after reports claiming otherwise said they were going to recall councillors and paralyse especially Harare City council after their Harare Mayoral Candidate Luckson Mkunguma lost to MDC Alliance’s Jacob Mafume.
The MDC T has so far recalled over 80 councillors countrywide and the recalls have virtually paralysed Harare and Beitbridge Councils.
