Farirai Machivenyika Senior Reporter—
Former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa was yesterday expelled from Zanu PF two days after President Mugabe dismissed him from Government. President Mugabe fired him from Government on various charges including discharging his duties in a manner inconsistent with his official duties, disloyalty, disrespect, deceitfulness and unreliability and a lack of probity in the execution of his duties.

His expulsion from the revolutionary party follows recommendations that were made by all the party’s 10 Provincial Coordinating Committees. Zanu-PF Secretary for Information and Publicity Cde Simon Khaya Moyo announced the expulsion yesterday following the 313th ordinary session of the Politburo.

“The National Political Commissar Cde Saviour Kasukuwere gave a comprehensive report on the activities in the Commissariat Department. All the 10 provinces, the Women’s League and the Youth League endorsed the expulsion of former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa as Vice President of the Republic of Zimbabwe by His Excellency Cde R.G. Mugabe.

“On the request of the 10 provinces, the Women’s League and the Youth League, the Politburo has unanimously expelled former Vice President and Second Secretary of the party Cde E.D. Mnangagwa as a member of the party. The Politburo received reports from nine provinces indicating that they have identified a number of party leaders in their provinces who had been involved in Lacoste factionalism in violation of party rules, guidelines and procedures. The Politburo directed that such cases should be directed to the National Disciplinary Committee for action and recommendations in accordance with the constitution of the party,” Cde Khaya Moyo said.

Cde Khaya Moyo could not be drawn to comment on a statement released by Mr Mnangagwa yesterday. “We do not deliberate on what is not addressed to us but we take note,” he said. He said the Politburo had also expelled Cde Magura Charumbira from Bulawayo province who was part of the thugs that booed First Lady Dr Amai Grace Mugabe at the province’s Youth Interface rally last weekend. Cde Khaya Moyo added that the Politburo received a report from Secretary for Administration Cde Ignatius Chombo on preparations for the Extraordinary Congress.

“He (Cde Chombo) told the Politburo that the Congress would be held from December 12 to December 17 in Harare. The theme of the Congress is ‘Consolidating the gains of Zim-Asset through unity, peace and development’,” he said. Meanwhile, Agriculture, Mechanisation and Irrigation Development Minister Dr Joseph Made also briefed the Politburo on the preparedness for the forthcoming cropping season.

Dr Made said 1,8 million households would benefit from the Presidential Input Scheme while 400 000 hectares had been targeted for maize under Command Agriculture. He also said 1,4 million tonnes of maize had been delivered to the Grain Marketing Board with the parastatal paying farmers $497 million while $43 million was still outstanding.

    “In a democracy,the only arbiter is the electorate”
    What about in a dictatorship? When 8 provinces out of 10 passed a vote of no confidence on Kasukuwere and his brother who was the arbiter? Didn’t Marujata overrule the wishes of the people then? Is that your definition of democracy? When Marujata was booed in Bulawayo,didn’t she demand that the politiburo expel Ngwena from the party or else she would act alone? Democracy and ZANU PF should never be used in the same sentence.

    Zanu PF always manipulates and violates its own processes and procedures to suit factional interests. Lies and dishonesty are invariably employed to weed out dissenting voices prior to an elective conference and also to unprocedurally sideline internal rivals; what kind of democracy is this ? It’s absolute BS and you know it!

    • Cde Mzvinavhu(Prof)

      Leave ZANU PF from your factional anger. As I said just view videos on what the very leaders on the receiving end today , said when former VP Mujuru was expelled. You will not believe what they are saying today. Its politics stupid, in my learned view.

    Its not true that we have been used. We are not political condoms. The truth is that war vets cannot be painted with one brush. We may differ in our political views. The majority of us are still ZANU PF members and supporters , few were expelled and no longer support ZANU PF. Yes , sober war vets understand that we liberated this country for all Zimbabweans. We also understand that the majority of Zimbabweans we liberated,young and old have equal democratic rights like us. . . We are educated to understand that the young are the majority voters who can vote for any citizen in our country. We know and accept that any leader in our party can be appointed or elected, to any position regardless of whether one is war vet or non war vet or ex political detainee or whatever, as per our party and national constitutions. We had non war vets Cdes Border Gezi and Manyika as successful national political commissars in ZANU PF. . All this nonsense that we bought and have political title deeds over all party and government positions is misleading. We should aim to give a good revolutionary guiding hand to the up coming young generation. . Everything must be within the law. As a liberation hero , personally I have remained a cell member and never worked in the public sector. I am not bye standing. I believe our party will remain strong and viable . I also believe our party will win in 2018.

      I hope the first family reads your posts..If not you are wasting your time.Dai Rob Jnr or the first son in law Mr S vakakutorera kamunda kako ikako kausina kutenga

        My personal comments are for national debate and educative purpose . They have nothing to do with any family. Readers have criticized me and thereby sharpening our national debate. Nothing to do with my A1 farming plot. I never applied for an A2 farm because of personal reasons. We cant all be large scale farmers. I am an economist by training. I had a full time executive job with a large financial institution for nearly three decades. I dont need to start a new commercial farming career at my age. Your insinuation does not hold water. Its political hogwash from MDCT sellouts.

        • yowe

          MDC sellouts hahahaha uchakatorerwa kamunda ikako

  • Cde Mzvinavhu(Prof)

    Kana ndarasa gwara , I will become “dzinge-able“. I am not above party rules. Kkkkkkiiiii.

  • Cde Mzvinavhu(Prof)

    Be advised that my comments a just from my heart. I may differ with other comrades in the debate . But that is democracy. I used to enjoy tutorial discussions on a course on “ Politics and Government in Africa“, during my academic sojourn at the London School of Economics. I am reminded of one discussion topic “Politics and government in Africa is like a bullfight. You never know when you end in hospital “. Discuss. Indeed the topic then, gave us an intellectual, robust and rational disputation platform.

    Dear Herald editor. Did you give coverage to ED’s statement yesterday ?

    Or the ZNLVA war vets statement.

    Seems we may be lacking balance somewhat ?
