Tjimbuare Thom suspends four senior traditional councilors

OPUWO: The chief of the Vita Royal House, Tjimbuare Thom on Thursday suspended four senior traditional councillors.

These officials were allegedly suspended after they raised certain issues with the chief.

They are Muhata Kapi, Mika Muhenje, Mutindi Muteze, Titus Muhenje and the secretary of the Vita Royal House, Ben Kapi.

Ben Kapi confirmed to Nampa today that some leaders had been suspended, but did not want to elaborate and only said a meeting will be held this coming Wednesday to look into the suspensions and other problems of the traditional authority.

A source close to the issue told Nampa today that the councillors who were suspended all signed a letter, which was handed over to Thom.

In the letter dated 23 September this year, they allegedly complained to the chief about his ‘inactiveness’, and for taking decisions in isolation.

The chief could not be reached for comment on what led to the suspensions.
