Another MDC-T councillor fired

Mbizo councillor Johannes Ngodzo has been expelled from the party post of Deputy Chairperson for the district. This follows allegations that he defrauded home seekers cash amounting to $12,000.

The Constituency Development Committee led by Chairperson Simon Machisvo has put forward evidence detailing the reports. It is the committee’s submission that Ngozo who is also the Housing Committee chairperson, defrauded residents on the promises that he would help them acquire residential stands.

Deputy Local Government Minister Sessil Zvidzai said he would remain at the council until findings of a three-member probe team led by national executive member Victor Mapungwana are completed.

Ngozo is the second city official to be accused of corruption. Finance Director Albert Zingwe was fired early this year after being convicted of several cases of corruption and theft of 2,000 street lights.
