This notice serves to inform all our ratepayers that lawyer Mr Paul Mangwana of Mangwana Legal Practitioners is not in any way engaged to do work on behalf of Harare City Council.
The City Council disassociates itself from contents of a newspaper report in the Financial Gazette dated September 3 to 9, 2015 in which the paper uses unconfirmed reports to insinuate that Council has engaged Mr Mangwana as a debt collector.
The newspaper sought council comment on the matter but chose not to use the council ‘voice’ distancing itself from the allegations.
We have five firms of lawyers that we deal with and Mr Mangwana is not part of the five. He is not contracted by council and is therefore not collecting any money on our behalf.
