Harare City Council has appointed Health Director Dr Prosper Chonzi acting town clerk.
The appointment will run from Monday to September 30, 2020.
This follows the arrest of Town Clerk Hosiah Chisango on corruption charges last week.
In a statement, Council said: “His Worship, the Mayor, Cllr Jacob Mafume has appointed Dr Prosper Chonzi to act in the position of Town Clerk with effect from today 14 September to 30 September 2020.”
According to the Urban Councils Act, the Chamber Secretary is supposed to act as Town Clerk, but Harare does not have a substantive secretary.
The Act states that managers rotate monthly as acting town clerk.
