Vote Of No Confidence , Against Mphoko & 7 Senior Zanu PF Figures By War Veterans’ Association (ZNLWVA)

A vote of no confidence has been passed on Vice-President Phelekezela Mphoko and seven top party officials by war veterans.

War Veterans Mphoko is accused of fanning factionalism as well as tribalism

The war veterans demanded that Mphoko “must fall”, raising the stakes ahead of a crunch meeting between the former liberation fighters and Mugabe set for early next month.

Other leading party figures that the war veterans want fired are Zanu PF political commissar Saviour Kasukuwere, politburo member Jonathan Moyo, women’s league finance secretary Sarah Mahoka, Harare provincial commissar Shadreck Mashayamombe, women’s league deputy secretary Eunice Sandi-Moyo, youth league deputy secretary Kudzai Chipanga and Youth minister Patrick Zhuwao.

Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association (ZNLWVA) spokesperson Douglas Mahiya yesterday said they were unapologetic over their actions, declaring they were the owners of Zanu PF.

“The war veterans are the owners of Zanu PF. Zanu PF cannot afford to ignore its forces in as much as Zanu and Zapu could never have ignored Zipra and Zanla,” he said sternly.

“We are the foundation of the party and the party must take what we say very seriously. The vote of no-confidence has been passed and must be executed, that is what we expect.”

Mphoko is accused of fanning factionalism as well as tribalism after he said at a rally in Chiweshe a few weeks ago it did not follow that since Mugabe was a Zezuru, a Karanga must succeed him.

The VP has been strongly linked to Zanu PF’s Generation 40 (G40) faction, which is allegedly led by First Lady Grace Mugabe.’Source: Newsday
