By A Correspondent- The newly elected MDC Alliance Harare Mayor Jacob Mafume has been recalled, it has emerged.
Sources privy to the development alleged that Mafume was recalled by his party PDP.
It was however further revealed that the new Harare Mayor was recalled by a faction of the PDP led by Lucia Matibenga.
Matibenga broke ranks with the Tendai Biti-led faction in 2017 following differences over joining the MDC Alliance ahead of the 2018 polls. At the time, Matibenga was party chairperson.
In an interview with ZimEye, Mafume however dismissed the report and said he knew nothing about the recall.
“Ask her (Matibenga) please. I have no idea what you are talking about.”
Matibenga was not picking up calls at the time of publishing.
