HARARE City Council acting Finance Director Stanley Ndemera has gone into hiding after learning that police are seeking to arrest him in connection with criminal inquiries relating to land allocation and sales in the city.
Police national spokesperson Paul Nyathi said yesterday Ndemera is on the run and police want to arrest him.
“ZRP confirms that the Police Special Investigations Unit and Special Anti-Corruption Unit (SACU) are looking for Harare City Council’s acting Finance Director, Stanley Ndemera in connection with criminal inquiries relating to land allocation and sales in the city.
“The suspect is on the run,” Nyathi said.
Ndemera becomes the second top Harare council official to evade arrest in the past two months. Harare City Council director of works Engineer Zvenyika Chawatama wanted by the police for alleged criminal abuse of office and in February evaded police after a high-speed chase all the way to Chitungwiza.
Chawatama stands accused of assuming the town clerk duties last year in December without following proper appointment procedures since the suspension of substantive town clerk Engineer Hosiah Chisango.
Meanwhile, acting chamber secretary for Harare City Council, Charles Kandemiri, has been arrested by the police. – Zimbabwe Voice 🔺
