Zanu PF FACTIONALISM: ‘Masvingo Province Suspends 11 Mnangagwa Allies’

The 11 were suspended last week and ordered to stop carrying out any party activities until they have been cleared by the disciplinary committee.

Provincial chairperson Amasa Nenjana confirmed the resolution in a letter dated July 28 this year, addressed to the affected party members.

These are finance secretary, Prisca Moyo, youth secretary Bright Munyoro, publicity secretary Ailess Baloyi, administration secretary Susan Madzivadondo, youth executive Senderai Manyanga, provincial committee member Ignatius Murindi, health secretary Zvepano Munganasa, science and technology secretary Jevas Masosota, transport secretary Godhati Dunira Hungwe, deputy security secretary Buster Mafio and political commissar Mucharevei Chamisa.

Nenjana, who is linked to the G40 faction aligned to First Lady Grace Mugabe, said the suspended party members contravened article 3 section 21 of the party’s constitution by urging members to snub meetings organised to show solidarity for President Robert Mugabe and his wife.

Nenjana could not be reached for comment yesterday.

The alleged Mnangagwa allies were also accused of refusing to recognise the suspension of former provincial chairperson Ezra Chadzamira, whose fate is pending at the party’s disciplinary committee.

The other charge laid against the 11 is that they undermined the authority of Masvingo Urban MP, Daniel Shumba by holding a party meeting in his constituency last month, without informing him.

The latest suspensions come barely a week after Zanu PF’s national disciplinary committee nullified a no-confidence vote against Chadzamira, Senator Clemence Mkwarimba, Masvingo Central MP Edmund Mhere, Gutu Central MP Lovemore Matuke and former Chivi Central MP Munyaradzi Paul Mangwana.

The five were also accused of backing Mnangagwa’s bid to succeed Mugabe.
