Chinotimba fighting to retain control of workers union
Published: 20 March 2017 (230 Views)

Buhera South legislator Joseph Chinotimba is fighting to retain control of the Zimbabwe Urban and Rural Council Workers Union as the president and is challenging national congresses held in Masvingo and Mutare in 2014 which ushered in a new executive.

In matter pencilled for the High Court, Chinotimba has dragged the union, one Bernard Dhanda the secretary general of the union and one referred to as Tazvitya who he accuses of masquerading as the union's president and the Minister of Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare to court.

He claims he is the legitimate president of the union and seeks the nullification of the purported national congress held on 26th of April 2010 in Masvingo and Mutare.

Chinotimba additionally seeks the cancellation of constitution date stamped by the union on the first of February 2014.

He argues that he is the custodian of the original registration certificate of the union and never handed over the same to the defendants as he retains the support of union's national executive committee and national council.
