- Suspended Harare mayor Bernard Manyenyeni
Movement for Democratic Change – Tsvangirai president Morgan Tsvangirai’s spokesman Luke Tamborinyoka has described local government minister Saviour Kasukuwere as a ‘G40 idiot’ for sacking Harare mayor Bernard Manyenyeni.
Kasukuwere, a member of Grace Mugabe’s G40 faction of Zanu PF, suspended the mayor on Wednesday following a dispute over the hiring of town clerk James Mushore, who the government opposes.
“What will it take for this G40 idiot to know that under the new Constitutional dispensation, he has no powers to suspend an elected mayor?” Tamborinyoka said.
Tsvangirai’s spox said Kasukuwere would not win the war to topple MDC-T mayors and cited recent judgements in which the courts ruled in favour of suspended Gweru mayor Hamutendi Kombayi.
