Bikita RDC goes after former chairman’s vehicle



BIKITA – Bikita Rural District Council has resolved to get US$12 000 for a Toyota GD6 that former chairperson Benjamin Masakadza took away without paying a cent.
Councillors resolved during a full council meeting last week the GD6 should be repossessed and parked at the council premises until Masakadza pays the full amount.
Masakadza allegedly took away the car that was reserved for the chairman without a resolution to support his action.
Finance director Never Mavhuna told the meeting that CMED assessed the vehicle and valued it at US$12 000.
“CMED assessed both the late Chibi and Masakadza’s vehicle and valued each at US$12,000. We are going to discuss with Masakadza, so that he can make a payment plan if he cannot make a once off payment. We also resolved that Chibi has to pay US$12,000 to offset the amount of his service vehicle a Toyota Fortuner and council will only pay him US$4,000 as gratuity,” said Mavhuna.
Council also resolved that 6 Toyota GD6 vehicles bought by the local authority and registered in the names of individual managers should immediately become pool cars.
Bikita RDC whose service delivery is on the downward spiral is struggling to pay its employees’ salaries.
