Gweru council fires top official

Although town clerk, Daniel Matawu on Friday refused to comment on the matter saying he was yet to inform councillors, sources said the committee set up to investigate Masinire had found him guilty of three charges.


He was allegedly found guilty of employing his friends and misrepresenting qualifications of employees.
“Of the charges raised against him, he was only acquitted of threatening to beat up an officer after a misunderstanding but found guilty of three other charges that had led to his suspension,” the source said.

The committee was made up of three councillors, an official from the ministry of Labour and Social Welfare, a Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions representative, a lawyer and a provincial magistrate.

Council still needs the blessings of the Local Government Board to fire the chamber secretary. Efforts to get a comment from Masinire were fruitless last week.
