KWEKWE-The city of Kwekwe is hunting for a new Town Clerk as the incumbent, Emmanuel Ngwena Musara is set to go on retirement after serving at the helm for 22 years.

Musara, a war veteran and trained journalist has his term expiring by the end of December and the new Town Clerk for the Midlands mining city is expected to take the reins starting January next year. Speaking to Midlands News, Musara said he intends to venture into full-time writing ‘of my memos and experiences during the liberation struggle’.

“There are a lot of things that I have planned to do and chief among them is to finish writing memos chronicling my experiences during the time of the war. I also intend to launch my book, Bite Of The Black Mamba and as you might be aware, I am actively involved in politics. So, I am not going to remain idle but will spend this retirement enjoying my passion- writing,” he said.

The outgoing Kwekwe town clerk had his bid to represent Kwekwe central constituency in the July 30 elections thwarted after he was out-balloted by the party’s Kandros Mugabe in the primary elections. The seat was eventually won by Masango ‘Blackman’ Matambanadzo of the National Patriotic Front (NPF).
