Harare Mayor, Bernard Manyenyeni announces Town Clerk ‘ Tendai Mahachi’s, suspension

Harare Town Clerk, Dr Tendai Mahachi has been suspended indefinitely.

Harare Mayor, Bernard Manyenyeni made the shocking announcement while concluding a full council meeting this evening, citing what he described as unresolved issues.

Councillors were as equally shocked with the decision.

Deputy Mayor, Councillor Thomas Muzuva said they were never consulted on the matter.

After some probing from the media, Mayor Manyenyeni revealed that the indefinite suspension is to pave way for the succession issue and the thorny issue of hefty salaries for executives.

Dr Mahachi said the organisation had been working on a succession plan, but queried the Mayor’s decision, saying it does not make legal sense.

This is not the first time that the Mayor has suspended the Town Clerk and the decision was reversed by the Minister of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing, Dr Ignatius Chombo.

Meanwhile, Mrs Josephine Ncube will be the Acting Town Clerk.
