Corruption-riddled Zvishavane Town Council (ZTC)’s workers are up in arms against finance director Jongoni after it emerged he was not forwarding their funeral insurance contributions to the relevant companies.
Chairman of ZTC, Esau Gwatipedza Dube confirmed receiving complaints from workers, but said he was awaiting a detailed report.
Workers who were prejudiced said they were pressing fraud charges against Jongoni.
Some of them said they only discovered that their contributions were not being forwarded after funeral companies refused to provide services, following deaths.
Dube said the council would issue official comment on the alleged fraud on Monday.
The discovery follows yet another massive scandal in the finance department, where hundreds of thousands of dollars were allegedly stolen by a syndicate involving the beerhalls manager, Raphael Karanda. Karanda has since been suspended from duty and handed over to the police facing theft charges.
