allafrica.com on November 19, 2011 reported that local Government, Rural and Urban Development Minister Ignatius Chombo has suspended Borrowdale Ward 18 councillor Exevia Vengesai (MDC-T) on corruption charges and appealed to the Supreme Court against the reinstatement of four other councillors. Clr Vengesai reportedly connived with a senior council official and procured stationery for the municipality worth US$44 000 from a company he owns. Harare mayor Mr Muchadeyi Masunda has since launched his own investigations into the matter. Minister Chombo wrote to Clr Vengesai on Wednesday informing him of the Government's decision to suspend him.
