Gwanda scouts for town clerk


INTERVIEWS for the position of Gwanda town clerk lasted until about midnight on Monday as the search for the town’s new administrator continued.


New-Gwanda-Mayor-Knowledge-NdlovuIncumbent town clerk Gilbert Mlilo retired and mayor Knowledge Ndlovu confirmed the interviews were held successfully.

“The interviews have been concluded and now we will be sending the names to the Local Government ministry for finalisation,” he said.

Ndlovu could, however, not be drawn to revealing who had been recommended for the top council job.

Speculation is rife that incumbent chamber secretary Priscilla Nkala would land the job.

She was the only female among nine applicants that were called for interviews.

Nkala was a favourite of Local Government minister Ignatius Chombo who fired former Gwanda mayor Lionel De Necker over his refusal to appoint her to current position.

Others who attended the interviews were former Gwanda housing director Thuso Maphala, former treasurer Charlton Moyo and Joshua Nkomo of Plumtree Town Council.

Others came from as far as Gokwe and Victoria Falls.

Mlilo’s job attracted a record response following revelations that he was the second highest paid town clerk in Zimbabwe.

Matabeleland South provincial administrator Midard Khumalo presided over the interviews while the mayor and town clerk observed the process.

Gwanda residents said the incoming town clerk should work towards developing the town which they feel is moving at a slow pace.
