“My committee will proceed with our plans when business resumes – but in the meantime, the investigation team set up by Mayor Bernard Manyenyeni is doing its work,” said committee chairperson Irene Zindi. Town Clerk Tendai Mahachi will be summoned to give evidence.

The council spent at least $2 million on 50 cars that include three sports utility vehicles, 21 double-cab and 21 single-cab trucks from various car dealers in Harare using funds from the China National Machinery and Equipment Import and Export Corporation meant for refurbishing water and sewage treatment plants.
