HCC to reinstate former director

HARARE City Council (HCC) has been forced to meet during the COVID-19 lockdown to impliment a resolution to reinstate dismissed workers.

HCC recently dismissed Kainos Chimombe, who was once dismissed of fraud and related allegations of abuse of office.

A reliable source within HCC told Zim Morning Post that they were forced to immediately report for duty in order to reinstate the dismissed worker.

“The City of Harare’s human resources committee will be forced to sit just to make a resolution to reinstate Kainos Chimombe,” said the reliable source.

According to the Zim Morning Post source, Chimombe, who was at one time the human resources director, was fired due to allegations of fraud and abuse of office.

“Members of the committee who are around Harare have not been turning up for the urgent scheduled meetings as they are said to receiving funds from the former human resources director so that the abscond,” said the source.

It is alleged that one Happymore Chidziva is convincing councillors, also convincing Mayor Hebert Gomba to whip his councilors to accept this.

“This is serious because the decision is supposed to be done during this COVID-19 lockdown period and forces are being fully sponsored to make the decision,” he said.

“I urge residents to be on the watch. Chimombe fraudulently looted a lot of money from HCC.

“That is why he is sponsoring all this campaign to return to work,” he added.

Chimombe’s cellphone was unreachable for comment until the time of publication.
