Harare Town Clerk Mahachi Suspended

Harare, January 30, 2014-Harare City Council has suspended town clerk Tendai Mahachi for failure to discharge his duties and refusing to furnish councillors with the salary schedule, defying a council resolution.

The three- month suspension comes after reports that Mahachi and 18 managers at Town House were gobbling close to $500 000 monthly while workers were in poverty.

Mayor Bernard Manyenyeni told journalists that he personally handed Mahachi the letter of suspension and notified Local Government minister Ignatius Chombo currently in Zambia of the development.
