GOVERNMENT has given the green light for Mutare City to recruit a new Town Clerk after the candidate who had been initially appointed failed to turn up for the job.

Mr Kumbirai Madanhi was appointed Mutare Town Clerk on March 1 last year to replace the late Mr Joshua Maligwa.

However, Mr Madanhi failed to take up the offer and is understood to have opted to remain at Ruwa Local Board where he is the Secretary.

This prompted council to engage the Local Government Board which approved the re-advertisement of the post.

According to an advertisement for the new Town Clerk, the Mutare City Council is looking for a person with more than 10 years demonstrable and proven experience in the local government environment.

The candidate must be above 35 years old and possess a degree in administration, law, accountants, social sciences, engineering or any relevant degree.

The aspiring candidate must have a post-graduate qualification in Business Administration and Public Sector Management.

Mr Blessing Chafesuka is the Acting Town Clerk and under his tutelage, the local authority has won various awards of excellence and service delivery.

The Ministry of Local Government and Public Works recently named the city as the best run metropolitan.

The local authority has successfully implemented a recapitalisation programme and procurement of service delivery vehicles and equipment.
