Nine more Zim ministers face the red card as purge against Mujuru loyalists continues

HARARE- PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe is not done with purging “treacherous” elements from his administration with nine more ministers said be facing the axe along with top figures in the security services and the government bureaucracy.

According to the Sunday Mail, nine more suspected Mujuru loyalists, among them cabinet and junior ministers would also be forced out of office.

Those targeted include Lazarus Dokora (Primary and Secondary Education), Andrew Langa (Arts, Sports and Culture), Sylvester Nguni (Minister of State in the First VP’s Office), Flora Buka (Minister of State in the President’s Office).

Provincial affairs minister such as Jason Machaya (Midlands), Kudakwashe Bhasikiti (Masvingo) and Mirriam Chikukwa (Harare) could also lose their jobs.

The cull is also expected to affect permanent secretaries with those in the firing line include  Munesushe Munodawafa (Ministry of Transport), Sophia Tsvakwi (Lands and Rural Resettlement), Partson Mbiriri (Energy and Power Development) and Ringson Chitsiko (Agriculture, Mechanisation and Irrigation Development).

Eight ministers and one deputy were last week fired along with former vice president Joice Mujuru as Mugabe acted swiftly and brutally following allegations his then deputy was about to spring a coup.

Mujuru, now reduced to an ordinary card-carrying member of Zanu PF, continues to deny has plotting to topple Mugabe and, in recent statements, reiterated her loyalty to  Mugabe and the ruling party claiming that the allegations were the work of Zanu PF enemies who have infiltrated the party and are working to destroy  it  from within.

But Mugabe  has  been adamant in his accusations against Mujuru. -Sunday Mail
