Losing Harare Mayoral candidate Councilor representing the Thokozani Khupe led MDC-T, Luckson Mukunguma has bounced back to win the Deputy Mayor’s post after being nominated unopposed.
The other contestant, Councilor Matinyanya, failed to get a seconder after he had nominated himself.
Mukunguma replaces Councilor Enock Mupamawonde who was recently recalled by the MDC-T.
The Finance Committee Chairperson previously lost the contest for the Mayor’s position after losing to current Mayor Jacob Mafume.
Councilor Mafume polled 19 votes whilst Councilor Mukunguma got 14 votes.
Mukunguma’s latest win provides some redemption for the Khupe faction which appears to now control the majority in the Capital City chamber.
