Mutare City Council will shortlist at least 10 candidates for the town clerk’s position to replace the late Joshua Maligwa, who succumbed to Covid-19 early this year.
City mayor Blessing Tandi told Standardpeople that the municipality held a two-day workshop in Nyanga to train people, who will be involved in the short-listing of the 10 candidates.
“The town clerk’s position is a strategic position, hence we chose to host the workshop in Nyanga because we need to fully focus on the work at hand,” he said.
Maligwa succumbed to Covid-19 on January 5 this year and health director Antony Mutara was appointed as the acting town clerk before he was arrested last week for abuse of office.
Mutara was granted $40 000 bail by Mutare magistrate Langton Mukwengi.
