Convicted thief suspends Bulawayo town clerk - Full letter
Published: 11 July 2019 (118 Views)
Christopher Dube has been suspended as the Bulawayo town clerk after councillors accused him of incompetence and abuse of office.

The retired army Major, who joined the Bulawayo City Council after serving in a similar role with the Victoria Falls Town Council, has had an uneasy tenure.

In a letter suspending him on Thursday, acting mayor Tinashe Kambarami accused Dube of mishandled a water crisis, misappropriating a ward retention fund, abuse of office and failing to implement council resolutions.

Kambarami said Dube’s suspension was without benefits, and the town clerk was barred from entering administrative council buildings.
 
Kambarami is a convicted thief who was fined by a court for stealing an electrical extension cord, it has emerged.

According to court records, Kambarami (32) was in July fined $80 or 18 days in prison for stealing the extension cord from an electrician he had hired to do manual work at his offices.
