Bulawayo residents up in arms with council






Bulawayo residents are up in arms with the city fathers after councilors passed a resolution to award themselves with state of the art phone tablets that will gobble US$40 000 at the expense of service delivery.

On the 4th of last month, the Bulawayo City Council passed a resolution to replace their laptops with tablet phones that are to be purchased at a cost of around US$40 000 with the decision not received well by residents who feel that that money could have gone towards service delivery.

In the council minutes in possession of ZBC News, the councilors resolved the laptops were now too heavy to carry.

Bulawayo Progressive Residents Association spokesperson Mr Zibusiso Dube has hit out condemning the councilors' love for opulence at the expense of their core business.

Efforts to get a comment from the city fathers over the issue were fruitless as the Bulawayo's City Council's spokesperson Mrs Nesisa Mpofu was said to be on leave while no one was responding from her office.

The incident comes at the back of most councils being blamed for adopting lavish lifestyles and awarding themselves hefty salaries while service delivery continue to deteriorate.
