Zanu-PF gags Mnangagwa allies suspended by Kasukuwere, warns them not to discuss matter in the Press5 years ago
In a press statement issued by Zanu-PF national spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo, the party warns Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s allies who were suspended by the party’s political commissar Saviour Kasukuwere not to discuss the matter with the press.
Kasukuwere suspended Masvingo provincial chairman, Ezra Chadzamira, provincial youth league political commissar Brian Munyoro, Midlands acting vice-chairman Godwin Shiri and provincial youth secretary for administration Justice Mayor Wadyajena, accusing them of fanning factionalism, disrespecting the party leadership and abusing social media. However, Zanu-PF Midlands and Masvingo provincial leadership convened emergency meetings and cancelled the suspensions .Masvingo provincial spokesperson Ronald Ndaba told the Daily News that Kasukuwere’s suspensions were null and void.
In the press statement issued on Thursday, Khaya Moyo advises the quartet to use party structures to discuss their suspension rather than issue statements through the media. Read the full press statement below:
Of late I have noted with dismay, statements issued to the press by some Party leaders and structures in relation to the prohibition orders to four party officials in the Midlands and Masvingo provinces by the National Commissariat Department for reasons so stipulated.
Those affected, if dissatisfied should use internal processes, provided for in our party constitution to communicate the same and not through the press. The Party at all levels does not condone such practice from top to bottom. We are all bound by the Party Constitution. The revolutionary ZANU PF party is not in the habit of conducting its affairs through the press let alone the independent media. The party will not be intimidated to respond to issues which are under investigation.
