    MWENEZI - The MDC Alliance has said that it is contesting the election of two local school heads to council while they are still clinging to their positions as civil servants.
    MDC Alliance Mwenezi West district chairperson, Amos Hungwe said that his party is now demanding a by-election in the two councillors’ wards. Hungwe said that the new Zimbabwe Constitution bars civil servants from holding positions in political parties.
    Mwenezi council chair Joram Ncube who was elected in Ward 6 in the 2018 harmonized election is the head at Marinda Primary School. Ward 14 councillor Admire Matutu is the teacher-in-charge at Zvomupungu Primary School. He is the vice chair of the Council.
    Hungwe said he wrote letters to Government departments like the District Administrator’s office, Public Service Commission, Council Chief Executive Officer and ZEC seeking action against the two’s positions which go against the Constitution.
     “We need the rule of law to be practiced, these people are acting illegally and their wards should be declared vacant,’’ said Hungwe.
    The Mirror is told that ZEC has since responded to the MDC letter and advised the opposition party that the election authority can only act on the matter on the request of a legal letter from the local authority.
