HARARE City Council health services director Dr Prosper Chonzi has been appointed acting town clerk.
He takes over from Engineer Zvenyika Chawatama who is on the run after he appointed himself to the top post when town clerk Hosiah Chisango was arrested late last year.
Eng Chisango has been suspended pending finalisation of his criminal abuse of office case and is barred from visiting council offices.
Acting mayor councillor Stewart Mutizwa yesterday confirmed that Dr Chonzi started work on Monday.
The delay in appointing an acting town clerk had seen the council failing to secure personal protective equipment for striking workers since there was no official to sign the orders. 🔺
