They was drama at the Chitungwiza Council offices on Monday after alleged ZANU PF Youth assaulted the Town Mayor Lovemore Maiko who has instigated moves towards suspending the Town Clerk George Makunde.
Mayor Lovemore Maiko wrote to Makunde querying why he has not been reporting for work and failing to attend any of the previous 3 Full Council Meetings.
“I would like to draw your attention to the matter above where you have not been attending both committee meeting and full council meeting for more than 3 full council meetings.
“In addition you have not been reporting for duty (work) hence you only report for work periodically,” it reads.
Cllr Maiko went further ask Town Clerk to write a report on why he has not been attending work.
“In that regard, may you kindly furnish with details as to why you were not attending committees and full council meeting as well as what you have been doing where and whether it is beneficial to council”, he said.
However violence erupted as some youths allegedly aggrieved at the Mayor’s move went on a rampage resulting in the beating of the embattled Mayor.
Pictures of the fracas viewed by this publication revealed broken car windows and some bloodied people at the Council offices.
Some other man can be seen jumping the fence fleeing the violent scenes.
The situation only calmed down after the arrival of the police.
The Chitungwiza Mayor has been in the eye of the storm recently after he was arrested last week for alleged fraudulent activities in a land scam.
