Government now wants qualified and competent people who own properties in town, to seek election as councillors to help move council business forward, and will block chancers who get into council to seek fortune at the expense of service delivery.

    I am in full agreement on the qualifications’ requirement. It is long overdue. I am not very sure about ownership of property as a pre-requisite though. Knowledge and competence backed by academic and professional qualifications is probably more important than one’s personal assets. The reason behind is understood. However, one’s abilities may not necessarily be influenced by their personal wealth. Such a proposal has the risk of turning down useful human resources who could otherwise contribute the most.

    President Mugabe started off as a herd boy. Why denigrate those who seek the same opportunities to better themselves?
