25 April 2017 – ZANU PF SA District executive has added its voice on the possible ouster of National Political Commissar, Saviour Kasukwere, saying it supports the resolution passed by Mashonaland Central Province and nine other provinces saying it is also unhappy with the beleaguered politician’s reluctance in recognising them a s the Party’s 11th province.
” The diaspora constituency is disappointed with the long duration taken by NPC to recognize the diaspora constituency and include it as an eleventh province. Cde S. Kasukuwere has been blocking our progress in all issues concerning the diaspora constituency,” says SA District chairperson Gift Kangausaru in a statement released today.
Mashonaland central province was the first to pass a vote of no confidence in Kasukuwere, before it eventually spread to other provinces, over allegations harbouring presidential ambitions and plotting to overthrow Party and Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe.
Kasukwere is accused of creating parallel party structures and corruption.
The vote of no confidence reportedly triggered Mugabe to deploy a high-powered Zanu-PF delegation last week comprising of Zanu-PF secretary of administration Ignatius Chombo and Defence Minister Sydney Sekeramayi, to probe the province’s decision.
“The district views the issues levelled agnst Kasukuwere, if true, as serious and at variance to the role and responsibilities of his office as enshrind in the party constitution adding that the SA district hopes that Kasukuwere’s matter be subjected to due processes as enshrined in the party constitution and tenets of natural justice,” adds Kangausaru who says they want hope the Party resolves Kasukwere’s issue to enable them to focus on preparing for next year’s elections.
“We implores the party to speedily and resolutely address this matter to ensure that the party can direct its effort and focus on service delivery, economic recovery and mobilising for the 2018 harmonised elections as directed by the President and First Secretary of the party during the last Central Committee meeting,” he says. – ZimsInSA.com reporter
