Mazowe Rural District Council has been fingered in a major corruption scandal. The scandal has prejudiced Mazowe of millions of dollars.
John Mudzonga was fingered as the major culprit in a dossier. The Mazowe Rural District Council chairman has been fingered in dubious land distribution.
Full text of the dossier reads :
Mazowe Rural District council is a body corporate etsablished in terms of section 12 of the Rural District councils Act Chapter 29:13. The Council is mandated to provide services to its civil society in terms of section71 of the rural district council Act.
Mazowe Rural District Council has a population of 233 450 , the major settlements under Mazowe rural district council include Nzvimbo , Glendale , Concession, Mazowe and Christon Bank. The Rural District Council believes in TAETA (Transparency ,Excellence , Accountability , Team work and Agility). It is under these TAETA values that I write to you requesting your timely intervention to preserve the Rural District council from the scourge of Corruption.
There is an unfathomable level of rot within the Mazowe RDC and its Dandamera ,Tsungubvi, Chiweshe and Mvurwi sub offices. The level of corruption will hinder the council from realizing its vision of creating an empowered, prosperous community by December 2023 the corruption has made it difficult to provide quality services through community participation for socio-economic transformation.
This dossier is an attempt at pointing you in the direction of the rot to enable ZACC investigators and prosecutors to do their jobs. While protecting my identity and guaranteeing my personal safety and that of my family.
Stands are a key area that requires transparency and diligence in managing them as they are a national treasure meant to benefit all Zimbabweans.
The Mazowe Rural District Council chairman John Mudzonga, councilors and other officials have flouted several laws and regulations in his handling of stands.
I refer you to these areas and the number of stands that were parceled out irregularly by the chairman of the Rural District Council
Area and Stands parceled out irregularly
Mazowe Medium density 28
Portlock High Density 10
Mazowe low density 64
Rockwood Concession 49
The chairman of the Rural District Council has abused his office and power and interfered in the distribution and sell of these stands to benefit himself and his acquaintances. A case study is the stand that John Mudzonga gave to musician Mark Ngwazi without following proper procedure, while it is commendable that the RDC chairman wanted to support the artist he should have followed due process.
Several commercial stands have also been parceled out in a corrupt manner which needs to be investigated.
Community Share Ownership Schemes. Metallon Gold made a contribution of USD 10 000 in the community share ownership scheme. These funds need to be audited and accounted for. The funds did not benefit the people of Mazowe.
