GOVERNMENT has appointed a team to investigate the circumstances leading to the suspension of Bulawayo town clerk Mr Christopher Dube.
The team is expected to arrive in the city today and start work tomorrow.
Bulawayo Deputy Mayor Clr Tinashe Kambarami on Thursday last week suspended Mr Dube and with the help of Clr Silas Chigora and other councillors, violently ejected him from his office. They accused Mr Dube of abuse of office, among other allegations.
Bulawayo mayor Councillor Solomon Mguni lifted the suspension the following day.
The Ministry of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing has appointed a team to investigate circumstances leading to Mr Dube’s suspension. The council’s Chamber Secretary Mrs Sikhangele Zhou, through a letter yesterday, notified the councillors of the pending investigations.
“Please be informed that an investigations team has been dispatched to investigate the recent events surrounding the suspension of the Town Clerk. The investigating team from the Ministry will arrive in Bulawayo tomorrow (18th July 2019) and will start work on the 19th July, 2019.”
