MDC Alliance Councillor Mistakenly Fired To Bounce Back
17 August 2021
The opposition MDC-T has reportedly finalised the comeback of Masvingo Urban Ward 3 Councilor Tarusenga Vembo who was fired by mistake last year when the party purged four councillors.
Tarusenga was one of the four MDC Alliance councillors in Masvingo who were controversially recalled in November 2020 by Douglas Mwonzora, who was then MDC-T secretary-general.

The other councillors are Godfrey Kurauone (Ward 4), Daniel Mberikunashe (Ward 5) and Richard Musekiwa (Ward 7). They were recalled for allegedly not representing the party’s interests.
Speaking to TellZim News recently, Mwonzora said Vhembo will soon be back at the townhouse as they were waiting for the final processes being done by the Ministry of Local Government and National Housing. Said Mwonzora:
He was reinstated and we are just waiting for the documents. Party spokesperson Dr Tarisai Mavetera is following up on the issue with the Ministry of Local Government since we wrote to them a long time ago.
Efforts by TellZim News to get a comment from Mavetera were futile as he reportedly did not respond to messages sent to his mobile phone and he also did not pick calls.
Vhembo who has been eager to return to his post continues to wait for communication since December last year when Mwonzora promised to reinstate him.
