Opposition MDC said that it will appeal the High Court ruling that nullified Tinashe Kambarami’s election as councillor for Ward 3 and Bulawayo deputy mayor.

Kambaramis election was last week reversed on the basis that he was a convict.

“In a statement, MDC Bulawayo spokesperson Swithern Chirowodza said the Judge has no power to unseat a councillor. Said Chorowodza.We are appealing to the Supreme Court. The court cannot assign itself the powers to unseat a sitting councillor because those powers are vested in a tribunal set up by the Minister of Local Government in terms of Section 278 of the Constitution of Zimbabwe.”
