Councillors within the Kwekwe City Council have resolved to proceed with their plans to effect a 300% increase on rates, something that has vehemently been opposed by rate payers.

At a full council meeting on Monday, city mayor Angeline Kasipo moved a motion to adopt the controversial supplementary budget.

“I am proposing the approval of the supplementary budget from July 2019 to December 2019,” Kasipo said.

The motion was seconded by Finance Committee chairperson Silas Mukaro and Councillor Betty Ndlovu.

The MDC led council has angered residents who feel they were being overburdened by a local authority that has exacerbated the situation through poor prioritisation.

Tempers flared at a city stakeholders meeting with residents who felt the city fathers were being insensitive to their daily troubles.

They accused management of corporate misgovernance and underhand dealings that continue to plunge the local authority into crisis.

Acting Town Clerk Lucia Mkandla however insisted that the consultative meetings have gone on very well despite the volatile environment which ensured.
