Obert Gutu a former MDC bigwig who broke away with Thokozani Khupe over a succession wrangle with Nelson Chamisa just after the demise of Morgan Tsvangirai has blasted MDC over failure to run the Harare City Council.

This follows after there has been a water crisis in Zimbabwe with Harare City Council failing to treat water.

Obert Gutu says “City of Harare desperately lacks both the technical & administrative capacity to deliver clean & safe water to Harare’s millions of residents. Level of corruption, indolence, administrative ineptitude, inefficiency & incompetence within the City of Harare stinks to high heavens.”

The MDC party has retained the control of urban councils over the past decade.
