Compare with his old looks below.
Kambarami was in the news recently over the suspension of Bulawayo Town Clerk, Christopher Dube.
The deputy mayor suspended the Clerk citing the Clerk’s failure to address the water crisis bedevilling the city and also maladministration of public funds.
The suspension was however reversed 24 hours later by the Mayor, Solomon Mguni who argued that the suspension would cause despondency in the council.
Some commentators have since argued that the crisis in the city was tribal in nature.
Both the government and the opposition MDC have instituted investigations into the matter.
