How Politics Turned Tables for Former ZISCO Worker
Former Zimbabwe Iron and Steel Company (Zisco) plant operator, Clayton Masiyatsva (MDC Alliance), has been elected Redcliff mayor, taking over from Zanu PF’s Freddy Kapuya who has dumped the Midlands town and now represents Mhondoro-Mubaira constituency in Parliament.
Masiyatsva is being deputised by ward 4 councillor Vincent Masiiwa.
The new mayor worked for Zisco as a plant operator before quitting the ailing company to join active opposition politics, culminating in his election as Redcliff’s ward 3 councillor in the July 30 polls.
Masiyatsva joins former council undertaker Lloyd Mapiko who also contested the election on an MDC Alliance ticket and landed the post of Redcliff MP after beating hot favourite, Local Government minister July Moyo.
“I give thanks to my party which endorsed me to be seconded for the post of mayor. I also thank my fellow councillors for showing confidence in me. Real work has now begun,” Masiyatsva said.
He was quick to highlight that his biggest priority would be to fix the perennial water crisis in Redcliff caused by intermittent supplies of the precious liquid that is pumped from neighbouring City of Kwekwe.
