Mashonaland Central joins call for Mnangagwa to be removed as VP
Mashonaland Central has joined Bulawayo Province in asking President Robert Mugabe to immediately drop Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa over allegations of undermining him. The resolution was arrived at during a Mashonaland Central provincial inter-district conference held at Chipadze Secondary School over the weekend.
Mashonaland Central provincial chairperson, Dickson Mafios, said the President must expel VP Mnangagwa with immediate effect. Said Mafios:
The President asked if he made a mistake by appointing the Vice-President. In the history of the party the President never addressed the nation like he did in Bulawayo. He is sleepless and he refused to eat, we also did not eat because we were hurt. What is surprising is that Mnangagwa never comments on all the allegations. Factionalism led by Mnangagwa wreaked havoc in our province and left me shaken. I am only recovering now. What is wrong with me, Cdes Saviour and Tongai Kasukuwere having positions in the party when he (VP Mnangagwa) left a constituency for his wife? The upcoming Congress is for the clean. The President is not protected and we ask him to expel his deputy Mnangagwa with immediate effect.
