News headlines have been screaming about “jump ship” councillors in Bulawayo and Gweru. The Thokozani Khupe led cabal, has been celebrating non-existent miracle councillors said to have crossed from MDC Alliance to MDC-T.

This is false and mere self pleasing propaganda on the part of the unelectable deserters who, after losing congress positions, are burying their political careers by joining the Supreme Court-constructed entity.
For the record, MDC Alliance councillors have a strong bond with their party, the MDC Alliance. Nothing will sway them from their focus to deliver superior services fulcrumed on the MDC Alliance SMART local governance policy.
They are ready for anything, shunning the temptation of the dangled carrot and weathering the storm of unnecessary, unlawful and immoral recalls by Douglas Mwonzora and company, which recalls have no relationship whatsoever with the aspirations of the people.
MDC Alliance councillors at the Bulawayo and Gweru stations of deployment are fully engaged in dealing with water challenges and informal sector infrastructure for enhancement of their trade, which activities are clearly at the centre of the health and sanitation as well as local economic development in our cities.
We as the MDC Alliance cannot be more proud of our deployees who have stood steadfastly by the mission to deliver smart and superior services to the people.
The recall and threat sideshows cannot distract these men and women of grit from their mission.
Our happiness is amplified by the sterling work that is happening in Mutare.
The mayor and his team are completing a water delivery pipeline to Dangamvura to consign the perennial problem of running water shortages to the past.
They have also invested in modern ambulances for the convenience of the sick in Mutare, all this inspite of the collapsed national economy.
Not to be out done, Chiredzi Town Council is attracting investment into the sugar industry-backboned town on a mission to make Chiredzi a smart city in the near future.
We call upon Zanu PF to manage its appetite for interference and allow the councils to deliver in accordance with the provisions of devolved local authorities.
