Harare City Council Health Services director Dr Prosper Chonzi
His appointment comes after Harare town clerk engineer Hosiah Chisango was arrested in Gweru over land scam allegations.
In a public notice this Monday, Harare City Council said Chonzi’s appointment is with immediate effect from the 14th of September to the 30th of September 2020. The statement read:
His Worship the Mayor Cllr Jacob Mafume has appointed Dr Prosper Chonzi to act in the position of Town Clerk with effect from today 14 September to 30 September 2020.
“He is one of the most experienced directors in charge of our health operation and has acted as a town clerk before so he is an experienced person fit for the position”, Mafume said.
Dr Chonzi is the Harare City Council Director Health Services and his temporary appointment as the town clerk follows the recent arrest of Hosiah Chisango, who held the position.
Chisango was arrested on September 10th in Gweru where he was attending a town clerks’ forum, just two days after he sent the formal letter suspending director of works Zvenyika Chawatama.
Chisango was arrested in connection with the continued unravelling of alleged illegal land deals that have rocked the city.
