Mayor Njabulo Siziba set for recall

Newly elected MDC Alliance Gwanda Mayor Njabulo Siziba is set to break record for serving the shortest time as Mayor of a council in Zimbabwe as the Thokozani Khupe led MDC-T is set to recall him together with two other councillors for being dishonest and playing double standards.

Reliable sources within the MDC-T Matabeleland South Province have provided with details that Siziba together with his colleague councillors Nappy Moyo and Mkhululi Tshuma will be recalled within the next few days at the recommendation of the province.

The sources, who provided with a copy of the recommendation letter for the recall from the province to Secretary General Douglas Mwonzora said that the three councillors took the party for a ride after attending an MDC-T meetingin the town a day before the election where they agreed to nominate and elect Siziba as an MDC-T Councillor only to change the party name and allegiance at the election.

The province has since recommended for the recall which Mwonzora is set to execute immediately.

The three councillors hit the headlines a month ago in pictures in a meeting with the MDC-T leadership where they denounced their allegiance to the Nelson Chamisa led MDC Alliance.

Only former Mayor Jastone Mazhale came out of the meeting dismissing Khupe and her MDC-T which led to his immediate recall.

After Mazhale’s recall, the three councillors appeared in an MDC Alliance media statement claiming allegiance to the MDC Alliance.

MDC-T spokesperson Khaliphani Phugeni could not be reached for a comment at the time of this article.
