Harare City Council cannot appoint another town clerk until the courts deal with two pending matters which are before the Constitutional and Supreme Courts, Mayor Bernard Manyenyeni has said.

In April, the city appointed former NMB chief executive Mr James Mushore as town clerk but Government rescinded the appointment after a council meeting that announced his appointment, saying council flouted procedures of appointing a town clerk as outlined in the Urban Councils Act and the Local Government Board.

According to the law in question, council was supposed to submit three candidates to the Local Government Board for approval. Council was forced to send Mushore on indefinite forced leave and since then Mrs Josephine Ncube has been acting town clerk.
