At least eight more Zanu-PF Members of Parliament are set to be ejected from Parliament after the ruling party’s Extraordinary Congress held last Friday adopted a Central Committee report recommending their expulsion, together with 12 other party members. The 20 Zanu-PF members were part of the G40 cabal that was causing chaos and instability in Zanu-PF before the Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) moved in to pacify the situation under Operation Restore Legacy.

The adoption of the Central Committee report recommending for their expulsion signalled the end of their stint as legislators, as it meant they were no longer representing the interests of the revolutionary party under whose ticket they went into Parliament. “The following members of the G40 cabal who had, through their nefarious activities destroyed the legacy of His Excellency the President Cde Robert Gabriel Mugabe be and are hereby expelled from the Party,” read the minutes of the Central Committee report.

The eight are Messrs Paul Chimedza (Gutu South), Shadreck Mashayamombe (Harare South), Samuel Undenge (Chimanimani East), Makhosini Hlongwane (Mberengwa East), Sarah Mahoka (Hurungwe East), Walter Mzembi (Masvingo South) Anastacia Ndlovu (Proportionate Representative) and Eunice Sandi Moyo (Senator).

Their pending expulsion from Parliament is in terms of Section 129 (1) of the Constitution. Section 129 (1) provides as follows: “The seat of a Member of Parliament becomes vacant if the member has ceased to belong to the political party of which he or she was a member when elected to Parliament and the political party concerned, by written notice to the Speaker or the President of the Senate, as the case may be, has declared that the member has ceased to belong to it.”

Five other MPs from Zanu-PF were expelled from Parliament last month after Zanu-PF wrote to the Speaker of the National Assembly that they were no longer representing the party’s interests in Parliament. They are Messrs Saviour Kasukuwere (Mount Darwin South), Kudzanai Chipanga (Makoni West), Ignatius Chombo (Zvimba North) Professor Jonathan Moyo (Tsholotsho North) and Mandiitawepi Chimene (Mutasa South). Zanu-PF’s Extraordinary Congress also adopted the expulsion of other party members who were part of the G40 cabal.

“That Cde Phelekezela Mphoko be and is hereby recalled from the position of Vice President and Second Secretary of Zanu-PF for being divisive, a member of the G40 cabal, tribalism, protecting criminals, preaching hate speech and behaving in a manner inconsistent with the office and decorum of the office as VP,” read the Central Committee report.

    ko Grace haasisiri Dr Amai kkkkkkkkkkkk ushemadzoro, chinokura chinokotama grace ava Mrs Mugabe- her correct tittle

      Political power is latent; you can only wield it for as long as the people who have asked you to hold that power in their trust allow you to do so. Once they go against you that power just disappears as Dr Amai found out. She is now just Grace and not even Dr Grace! The difference with her husband lies in that he has a renowned political track record of propriety within Zanu(PF) and his dedication to the party is unquestionable. He made mistakes that can be sanitized as his good deeds working for the party far outweigh the mistakes he made in his dotage at a time the party should have asked him to retire!

    Mrs Grace Mugabe. Kkkkkk. Kakanyanye. To think, at one point you could be thrown in jail for saying something like that.

  • Samanyika

    The Cabal is regrouping, watch the space.

    • tapuwa

    • Weston Mugocha

      Wassu, you are right but ZanuPf has already regrouped. Some will regruop in jail, watch this space.

    • RejectedStone, Cornerstone

      Is it a cabal or opposition?

  • Moe_Scyslack2

    Manje masiyana papi nekaharahwa kaye kamakadzinga? Same same. Even same regalia different picture.

    • Pacman

      Hahaha true, mazimbo takapusa, zanu, i### idzi, you think they care about you

  • zimbotry

    Interesting that these people were elected by the people and now the Party who says they are governed by the people, remove them.

    • newzim.com

      You need to understand the constitution first. Let them stand as independent candidates and you’ll see how they’ll fare.
      You can not claim to be the man behind the taste of bakers inn bread when you’re just an employee,

      • Pacman

        Ibvaapa. Constitution yakapusa kudaro, that’s dictatorship

        • RejectedStone, Cornerstone

          Dictatorship of those who made it “PF”. Pafunge.
          Ini zvangu I understand where the makhamaradha are coming from.

      • zimbotry

        I do understand it. And I agree they should now stand as independents, but the fact remains that they were elected by their constituents

  • G Tichatonga

    The elections are coming…all it needs is for these fired guys to either reinforce Mujuru’s party or form a party that draws in 500 000 to 1 000 000 supporters from the militarised party and the opposition will win. Pay back time.

    • Cde Chaurura

      Kkkkkkk Zviroto.

      • G Tichatonga

        Okay watch this space…….the international community must just keep pressure on the issue of free and fair elections. We will do the rest.

        • Cde Chaurura

          Didnt know you tell the international community what to do. Who are “we” doing the rest? Don’t forget WE are also there to foil your efforts.

    • TruthHurts!

      Please, if you have such opinions as you have said dont share them with the world lest people think that you are unwell.

    • RejectedStone, Cornerstone

      I woulhn’t mind Mujuru winning the elections. Many people, even in Zanu-PF don’t mind! But a lot of them have reservations against the likes of Tsvangirai. He will want to appease white people!!

  • Chando Kupisa

    Well so much for no retribution Mr President, typical walking right and talking left. Arbitrary expulsions no disciplinary hearings…quiet interesting…

    • RejectedStone, Cornerstone

      They are being expelled for not having stood-up against a clerly wayward former first lady. How can you trust such people? i am still wondering why Simon Khaya Moyo still holds high posts in Zanu!! he should make way for Dabengwa!! Mnangagwa and Chiwenga should seriously talk to Major General Dabengwa. I am sure Valerio Sibanda can assist!

  • Chamunorwa

    Here we go again.

  • Zoomer

    Is it me only but guys… that woman Chimene.. looks like the embodiment of all that called a crook… And we hear she stole some people’s husbands… What a shame.. and the elephant meat… G40 was a thieving cabal indeed…

  • RejectedStone, Cornerstone

    Zanu-PF is now crocodile-infested waters. You have to be a sneaky hippo in order to survive lol.

  • Sandura1

    Zanu supporters must learn to be sincere and truthful and not mislead their supporters.
