The once darling on Matebeleland people and now the buttress of all joke about position seeking Professors, Welshman Ncube, has warned Bulawayo residents and pressure groups against pushing for a government-appointed commission to the run the city's affairs, describing the move as misguided and a grave mistake.

Ncube likened the push to the 2017 "unconstitutional" overthrow of former President Robert Mugabe.

The MDC vice president said "whatever are the mistakes we have made as MDC or as councillors they are all capable of correction and rectification by us within the democratic ethos without inviting a coup government to do a coup against an elected council".

He further noted that after all, the mayor Solomon Mguni had already started the corrective process both on procedural and substantive issues.

"In the circumstances, it is a grave mistake to clamour for a negation of the democratic will of the people of Bulawayo as expressed by them only a year ago."
