By A Correspondent- Councillor Jacob Mafume who beat his rival after garnering 19 votes against Councillor Enock Mupamawonde’s 14 votes has pledged to turn Harare into a SMART city.

35 councillors were expected to vote but one councillor was absent and sent an apology while one ballot was spoilt.

Mayor Mafume promised to lead a corruption-free council and urged his team to prioritise service delivery.

He said there is a need for stability at the townhouse and though it is a difficult time for workers, he promised to look into their welfare.
