Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Leonard Ncube Vic­to­ria Falls Reporter

TWENTY-two peo­ple, some of them ex­ec­u­tives from lo­cal au­thor­i­ties in Mata­bele­land North and South, have ap­plied for the Vic­to­ria Falls Town Clerk post with seven be­ing short­listed for in­ter­views.

A mas­sive 25 also ap­plied for the post of town trea­surer and six have been short-listed.

Vic­to­ria Falls Mu­nic­i­pal­ity is hunt­ing for a re­place­ment for out­go­ing Town Clerk Mr Christo­pher Dube, who joins the Bu­l­awayo City Coun­cil on Oc­to­ber 1 in the same ca­pac­ity.

Vic­to­ria Falls Mayor Coun­cil­lor Si­fiso Mpofu con­firmed that 22 peo­ple were in­ter­viewed for the Town Clerk’s post and seven were short­listed.

“Yes it’s true the se­lec­tion has been done where a few have been short­listed and we are wait­ing for the date for in­ter­views,” said Cllr Mpofu.

The Chron­i­cle had ac­cess to the list of ap­pli­cants and picked no­table names like for­mer Tsholot­sho Ru­ral District Coun­cil chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Mr Ron­nie Dube and Hwange Col­liery Com­pany Fi­nance man­ager Mr Gift Sibanda who ear­lier lost the Bu­l­awayo Town Clerk job to Mr Dube.

Also on the list are Plumtree Town Coun­cil sec­re­tary Mr Dumezweni Davis Luthe, Nkayi chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Mr Zim­babwe Ndlovu, Hwange Lo­cal Board sec­re­tary Mr Ndu­miso Md­lalose as well as Vic­to­ria Falls Hous­ing and Com­mu­nity Ser­vices Di­rec­tor Mr Lot Si­a­tim­bula.

Those who have been short­listed for the Town Clerk’s post are Mr Dube, Mr Ndlovu, Mr Luthe, Mr Md­lalose, Mr Bon­gani Ng­wenya, Mr Stan­ford Ndlovu and Mr Possent Si­belo.

The coun­cil’s Gen­eral Pur­pose Com­mit­tee (GPC), the Provin­cial Ad­min­is­tra­tor Ms Latiso Dlamini, Hwange District Ad­min­is­tra­tor Miss Nkany­iso Jubane and an of­fi­cial from the Pub­lic Ser­vice Com­mis­sion sat on the se­lec­tion panel.

A full coun­cil meet­ing last month rec­om­mended that the GPC con­ducts the in­ter­views.

Yesterday, Cllr Mpofu said the mu­nic­i­pal­ity couldn’t do the whole process alone.

“We can’t do it alone and cer­tainly we have to in­clude Gov­ern­ment,” the Mayor briefly said on the PA and DA in­clu­sion on the in­ter­view panel.

The DA Miss Jubane couldn’t com­ment on the is­sue while the PA Ms Dlamini’s was not reach­able.

Mean­while, those short­listed for the trea­surer’s post are deputy town trea­surer Mr Neville Ndlovu, Vic­to­ria Falls ac­coun­tant Mr Lazarus Mu­denda, Ms Tat­je­nama Nleya, who is also a coun­cil em­ployee, Mr Shep­herd Tshuma, Mr Bekithemba Mlotshwa and Mr In­no­cent Tshuma.

The mu­nic­i­pal­ity is hunt­ing for a new trea­surer who will re­place the in­cum­bent Mr Them­binkosi Khu­malo who re­tires at the end of this year. @ncubeleon.
