“These are Size Vilela (11), Charles Ngwena ( 4), Wonder Siriya (6) and Misheck Manyere ( 5) and Chengetai Murova (1).
“In terms of Section 278 (1) of the Constitution of Zimbabwe as read with Section 129 (1)(k), wards 11, 4, 6,1and 5 are now vacant,” read the letter.
Murowa was recently fired by his own party the MDC-A accusing him of double dipping and leaking party information to security agents.
He was however later cleared with his party saying the suspension was null and void.
