Government directs ministry officials to attend urban councils meetings
As a result, Moyo said it had become necessary for the central government to monitor meetings of councils more effectively “in the interest of transparency, accountability and good governance.”
Moyo, whose ruling party has a stormy relationship with the MDC Alliance which controls most of the country’s urban councils, claimed he had issued the directive in the national interest and to ensure that all tiers of government “operate legally and in harmony with each other.”
“I have bigger problems with the government than I have with my party.
“As far as my party is concerned, firstly there are times when they fail to realise the basic political truth that the council is captured by Zanu PF, people, processes and politics.
