Zanu-pf Harare Province has told embattled party National Political Commissar Cde Saviour Kasukuwere to stop interfering with their provincial structures after he issued a statement purporting to have nullified the province’s decision to appoint Cde Justice Zvandasara as acting chairperson.

This came after the dismissal of Cde Charles Tawengwa who stood accused of cavorting with Cde Kasukuwere to the detriment of the business of the province.

Among the charges Cde Kasukuwere who has been rejected by nine out of zanu-pf’s 10 provinces faces, is undue interference in provincial affairs.

In separate interviews, Cde Zvandasara and the provincial secretary for Administration Cde George Mashavave said Cde Kasukuwere’s statement exposed his dirty hands. They both said Cde Kasukuwere issued his statement while the Provincial Coordinating Committee was still in session.

They said it was unclear how Cde Kasukuwere came to know about the decision that was yet to be communicated to him formally.

Cde Zvandasara started work as acting provincial chairman yesterday. He dismissed Cde Kasukuwere as divisive, while Cde Mashavave described his statement as unfortunate.

Cde Zvandasara was appointed acting chairperson on Sunday by the Harare Provincial Coordinating Committee, taking over from Cde Charles Tawengwa.

He is deputised by Cde Andy Mhlanga. Cde Tawengwa is a Politburo and Central Committee member.

In an interview yesterday, Cde Zvandasara said: “I do not get instructions from anyone except my province. The mandate that Cde Kasukuwere is talking about comes from the people, not from a single individual.

“As Harare province, we still stand by our resolution that we rejected Cde Kasukuwere as the National Political Commissar until the Presidium pronounce his fate.

“He is a divisive political commissar. His hurried statement that was issued before we even finished the PCC showed that he was controlling Harare Province through Cde Tawengwa.

“He even called our Secretary for Administration (Cde Mashavave) during the PCC, but we advised him to ignore the call. That is interference of the highest order because a National Political Commissar should not go around hunting for rumours.

“There are laid down communication procedures that we follow as a party and he should have waited for that communication. He even called me last Friday accusing me of trying to usurp power from Cde Tawengwa. He has no right to call me discussing rumours.”

During his first day in office, Cde Zvandasara superintended over primary elections for ward 46 council by-elections won by Cde Chibururu. He said there was smooth transition of authority as Cde Tawengwa was advised to revert back to his Politburo and Central Committee positions.

“There was smooth transfer and we conducted successful primary elections for ward 46 by-elections,” he said. “What I am appealing from the senior leadership is to stop interfering with operations of provincial structures and learn to respect their decisions.

“There is also a big gap between the province and the Politburo, so Cde Tawengwa was too senior and as such he was just dictating what he wants to the province without anyone questioning him.

“We have also come up with a master strategy for 2018 where we are going to do massive restructuring starting from next week.”

Cde Zvandasara said the PCC discussed several issues and it was noted that Cde Tawengwa was involved in the Norton saga that saw Zanu-PF losing to independent candidate Mr Temba Mliswa last year.

He said during Cde Tawengwa’s tenure, Harare province was implicated in rigging of Zanu-PF Masvingo provincial chairmanship elections, resulting in a re-rerun.

Efforts to get a comment from Cde Kasukuwere were fruitless.

  • Tachiona Machaka

    I paused a question and you are yet to respond cde succubae.

    • succuba

      Apologies TM, but we may live in different time zones.

      One thing you can be assured, I will always respond.

  • succuba

    Morning TM, firstly. You said you had evidence to prove that I am “vulnerable to dishonest debate”, you have failed to bring this to the table and now use the tactic of diversion to move away from this falsehood. There is no trap of name calling I only reciprocate in kind.

    Still waiting for this evidence….

  • succuba

    Still no evidence then…

  • succuba

    Still incoherent, are you drunk?

    • Tachiona Machaka

      I now have a few new words from my learned mate succuba. {fakey,incoherent and drunk} kkkkkkkk ayas!!!!!!!!

  • succuba

    I am beginning to class you in the same rank as (fakey)… and that’s not good.

    • Tachiona Machaka

      WHEREVER you place me you wont find me there succuba?

  • Tachiona Machaka

    Any truth that is beyond reach is no truth at all.Succuba I suggest you revert to your usual tone for the sake of progress.

  • Tachiona Machaka

    If you are man enough show up your profile…..

    • succuba

      I am both man enough and wise enough not to show any personal details about myself on social media.

      • Tachiona Machaka

        That’s what cowards are good at succuba, hiding behind your own finger avoiding to see reality.

  • Tachiona Machaka

    You suggest you are a tower of truth or the truth you refer to is on a tower? Any truth that is unreachable can only be a heap of lies succubae, be man enough to show up who you are on your profile.

  • succuba

    And those “basic facts” are…

  • Tachiona Machaka

    Agreed succuba stay with your imagined privacy and I keep my confidence.

  • Tachiona Machaka

    I beg your pardon succuba?

  • succuba

    Is this another quip you gleaned from your “unaccredited” PUBLIC RELATIONS BEST PRACTICES AND ETHICS course?

  • succuba

    If you can’t see that Mugabe has failed Zimbabwe then I can’t help you.

  • succuba

    Don’t think so…kikiiki…

  • succuba

    So are you afraid to debate with me?

    • Tachiona Machaka

      Are you debating or insulting me for telling you to wise up?

      • succuba

        Merely asking a question… I thought that was obvious!!

    • Tachiona Machaka

      Take it that ZDERA was enacted by foreigners to protect their own interests. Check with the recent Sanctions law passed again at whitehouse, against Russia. The foreign policy of the former protestants on this other of the globe is unique.

      • succuba

        You do talk a load of rubbish tachy…

  • succuba

    Land is not owned by the majority you fool, its a carrot for votes, once you vote against the goblin you farm is gone… you are an idiot, no one is safe… think Arnolds Farm just a couple of months ago.

    • Tachiona Machaka

      I did not say Arnolds farm is owned by the majority. I have realised you are too forgetful, I warned you that I wont fall into your name calling trap, not even under whatever duress. You refer to me as your fool and I respect that because that does not even change my mindset.

      • succuba

        If you think that Mugabe has given land to Zimbabweans then you are a bigger fool than I originally thought.

  • Tachiona Machaka

    Are you the moderator on this blog? Whose space?

    • succuba

      You have been caught lying…. are you not ashamed little boy?

  • Tachiona Machaka

    emancipating you, succuba. I am better schooled than that, cde succuba.

    • succuba

      I don’t believe that… you are indeed shallow.
