The search for a Kwekwe City substantive Town Clerk to replace Emmanuel Musara has begun in earnest.
Council in a recently held full council meeting resolved to engage the services of a Human Resources Consulting firm to kick start the process.
“We need to lay out a framework towards the appointment of a substantive Town Clerk. We must deliberate on how we are going to fill in the position,” Kwekwe Mayor Angeline Kasipo told councillors.
The councillors then proposed to engage a Human Resources Consultancy a decision which was unanimously agreed on by the councillors.
“We are therefore going to engage a Human Resources firm to kick start the process of filling the position,” she said.
Musara late last year retired from his lofty top city job a position he held for over two decades.
The former Zimbabwe’s longest serving Town Clerk joined the authority in 1997.
The former journalist with Moto Magazine last year contested for the Kwekwe Constituency parliamentary position under the governing Zanu PF.
His bid hit skids after he was beaten to the position by Kandross Mugabe.
Late last year at his farewell party Musara gushed President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s praises.
“The President was my MP when I first came to Kwekwe. He welcomed me and made me feel at home.
“He offered me support from that time up to today. I am really humbled and thank you your Excellency,” he said.
The ex-combatant said Mnangagwa offered him support as Town Clerk right from the time the now state leader was MP for the area.
Insiders have indicated that the position of Town Clerk is already being advertised with the city’s big wigs amongst them Director of Central Administration believed to be eyeing the position.
