ZVISHAVANE - The High court has ordered Zvishavane Town Council to stop an election to choose a new council chairman for the local authority.
The council had set in motion a process where a new chairman was to be elected last week to choose a replacement for Esau Dube who was fired by the Minister of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing, Saviour Kasukuwere on various allegations of misconduct.
Dube who is an MDC T member then approached the High Court to fight the grounds on which he was fired. His lawyers Mutendi, Shumba, Mudisi and Partners then sought an order last week to stop fresh elections until Dube's matter was dealt with by the courts.
Lawyer Leopold Mudisi confirmed that there will be no elections until the High Court makes a ruling on Dube's dismissal.
Zvishavane Town Council secretary Tinoda Mukutu confirmed the development.
"We understand the court vedict is coming this week and it is that verdict which will determine whether we are to have an election or not," said Mukutu.
Dube is the second MDC-T council chairman to be fired after Alouis Zhou was fired by then Local Governance Minister Ignatius Chombo on allegations of fuelling corruption at council. news
