Bulawayo Mayor Solomon Madlala Mguni has refused to bow down to pressure from the MDC Provincial structure which instructed him to re-instate under fire Councillor Tinashe Kambarami to the Deputy Mayor position.

In a letter addressed to the Province Mguni said he has no power to go against the decision of the court that removed Kambarami from his position.

Kambarami was removed by the High Court after a Mthawazi organisation filed  a matter seeking to have him removed because he had been honesty on a matter relating to fraud.

On Tuesday in a letter to the mayor, MDC Bulawayo provincial secretary Ernest Rafamoyo said it was the party position that Kambarami be re-instated.

"After taking into consideration all the developments around the above matter … the position of the party, in consultation with the national leadership, is that councillor Kambarami remains the deputy mayor with the same conditions, privileges and benefits until the appeal is finalised by the Supreme Court. Please be guided accordingly."
