Jostling for the Harare Town Clerk position has begun with three candidates already positioning themselves for the top post that will be vacated by Dr Tendai Mahachi whose contract expires end of this year.
The three; Mrs Josephine Ncube, Dr Prosper Chonzi and Dr Cainos Chingombe are already serving within council departments.
Mrs Ncube is currently the Acting Town Clerk and Director Corporate Services and Housing Department, while Dr Chonzi is the City Health Director.
Dr Chingombe is the Director of Human Capital and Public Safety.
Dr Tendai Mahachi was placed on forced leave by council to pave way for investigations into the alleged paying of hefty allowances to council executives, among other issues.
He is also being accused of lying about his age and refusal to disclose his salary.
Dr Mahachi’s contract is expiring on the 31st of December and according to the Harare City Council’s Human Resources Committee Chairperson, Councillor Wellington Chikombo, Dr Mahachi’s chances of returning to his job are slim.
