THE newly-elected Bulawayo City Council (BCC) councillors were sworn in on Wednesday morning and subsequently took their oath of loyalty to both Government and the local authority to mark the commencement of their official duties.

The new councillors were sworn in, in terms of Section 47(3) of the Urban Councils Act Chapter 29:15, which stipulates that before undertaking any duty, a councillor shall take and subscribe before the town clerk of the council such oath of loyalty and office as may be prescribed.
