Harare — NATIONAL vice-chairman of the Zimbabwe War Veterans' Association Cde Joseph Chinotimba has resigned from the Harare City Council where he was a chief inspector in the municipal police.
Cde Chinotimba confirmed his resignation yesterday saying he quit to concentrate on his political career and businesses.
He also said his farewell party would be held at Town House tomorrow.
The war veteran was the Zanu-PF House of Assembly candidate for Buhera South constituency during the harmonised March 29 polls.
Cde Chinotimba said although he lost in his bid to represent the ruling party, he was still committed to assisting and serving Zanu-PF in the constituency.
"People in Buhera South say that I am their MP and I will fulfil the promises I made during the campaign period," Cde Chinotimba said, urging the new councillors to work together and recognise the leadership of President Mugabe.
Cde Chinotimba, who runs Edlan Security Company and is the president of the Zimbabwe Federation of Trade Unions, joined the council's municipal police section in 1982 and rose through the ranks to become a chief inspector.
