BINGA Rural District Chief Executive Officer Joshumba Muzamba has been accused of abusing Council resources while using resources to help his candidate campaign for the impending Zanu PF internal elections for district structures known as District Coordinating Committees (DCCs).

Citizen Watch said it is daunting that their outcry was being ignored as Muzamba is squandering the Council resources.

"It is disheartening that even after a prolonged outcry from the people of Binga about the continuous abuse of council resources by Muzamba, nothing has been done," said Citizen Watch.

"His latest nefarious activities come at the backdrop of the impending ZANU PF internal elections for district structures called DCCs. One of Joshua Muzamba's boys is contesting for the chairmanship of this DCC and Muzamba is funding him using council resources."

Citizen Watch said Muzamba is using Council vehicles to conduct the DCC campaigns for his Zanu PF boys.

"On September 15 2020, he went to Nsenga with a headmaster at Binga High School. On September 21 Muzamba went to Lusulu with his candidate where they carried out their campaign," said Citizen Watch.

"On September 22, Muzamba was in Simatelele using a council vehicle and was holding campaign meetings for his candidates. This is not the first time the council CEO has abused council resources to campaign for his cronies."

Citizen Watch said in 2018 ZANU PF primary elections; Muzamba used council vehicles to ferry around his brother in law to campaign meetings.

"One wonders where Muzamba gets his arrogance from. He has managed to defy a Supreme Court ruling that ruled that Muzamba must resign from one post of either being Council CEO or ZANU PF Central Committee member," said Muzamaba.

"Surprisingly Muzamba has held on to both posts in open defiance of the National constitution."

Contacted for Comment Muzamba professed ignorance over the matter.

"Aaah iwe siyana neni," said he said before hanging up.
