Gweru mayor Josiah Makombe says he would be a fool to accept a $150,000 Mercedes Benz C-Class proposed in the Midlands city's 2019 budget.

Makombe said he was not party to the budget process, adding that when his input and vote is finally sought, a mayoral vehicle would be the last of his priorities.

Makombe said he would also actively work to block another proposal to buy four council executives SUVs worth $85,000 each.

He said some of the proposed items will be rejected once the budget committee convenes.




"Let me put it on record that it's not true (that I want a car). I have never seen that document in my office; those papers are still with the thematic committees and it hasn't come to us as council yet so that we sit down and look at the figures," Makombe told journalists in the mayor's boardroom on Thursday.

He said Gweru residents should not panic to think that the city is being led by "greedy people who would want to abuse their monies" in that manner.

He said no executive is getting a car if residents have no water.
