Bikita ZANU PF leadership recently called for the expulsion of Elias Musakwa and eight other party stewards in the continued purge of those aligned to the Mujuru cabal, Tell Zimbabwe can reveal.
Speaking to Tell Zimbabwe, Masvingo Province Political Commissar, Jeppy Jaboon said the nine, Msakwa, Wilson Makonya, Shuvai Machekera, Emanuel Muchafa, Struggle Nyahunda, Sign Mkanganwi, Chipo Munyoro, Farai Tonhodzai and Charles Chinyike were fighting party efforts to bring development in Bikita and are alleged to be fuelling campaigns against the ruling party ahead of the 2018 elections.
“It is shameful that some of our members rebel against the revolutionary party and turn to disturb government’s efforts to bring development to Bikita. The nine are further fuelling pre-mature campaigns against the ruling party ahead of the 2018 elections that is why we largely plead with the party to expel them before they tarnish the good work ZANU PF is doing for the general public,” said Jaboon.
Jaboon further added that since Msakwa lost a parliamentary seat in the 2013 harmonised elections, he has become Claudius Makova’s puppet in fighting party policies in a bid to gain power.
“Since Msakwa lost in the 2013 harmonised elections, he has become a political puppet and is being used by the ousted Makova to fight the ruling party in a bid to gain power which we will not allow,” added Jaboon.
Expelled Makova however defended the yet to be expelled party stewards and blasted current leadership as idlers who only worry about withholding political positions and doing nothing to upgrade and helping the community.
“These people they accuse are doing nothing wrong. I do not even know to which party do they align us to and I have even asked them whom the President of that party is but they have since failed to answer,” said Makova.politics
