Fired Former Bulawayo Deputy Mayor Allocated Industrial Stand

Bulawayo City Council has reportedly awarded former deputy mayor, Tinashe Kambarami an industrial stand.

Early this month, Kambarami caused a stir at council chambers after he tried to attend a full council meeting despite his recalling by the MDC-T.

He demanded to be recognised as the deputy mayor after his acquittal by the Supreme Court but the ruling was of no effect as he was recalled by the Douglas Mwonzora-led party.

The former deputy mayor had to be ejected from the chambers by security, with the mayor, Councillor Solomon Mguni labelling him an intruder.

The Sunday News claims the mayhem could have been used as a smokescreen to divert the public from a deal between Kambarami and the council.

The publication said Kambarami had applied to purchase an industrial stand in the city, through a company he co-owns with his wife Rosemary — Grade One Private Limited.

Although in the council report, the Kambaramis are not named as directors, enquiries at the Companies and Deeds office revealed that the two are co-directors of the company.

The stand in question was to an extent of 3373 square metres that was surrendered to council by the previous owner and made available for re-allocation to other deserving applicants.

The Kambaramis are expected to pay a selling price of US$11 300 excluding 14,5 per cent Value Added Tax or Zimbabwe dollar equivalent subject to the foreign currency exchange auction rate, among other conditions.

Meanwhile, Bulawayo City Council corporate communications officer, Bongiwe Ngwenya said Kambarami is no longer a serving councillor.

She said the only way he could make it back to council chambers was if he challenged his expulsion in the courts.
