Zanu PF threatens to expel party rebels
The embattled Zanu PF National Chairman, Simon Khaya Moyo has called for the expulsion of members of his party who belong to factions.
Moyo was addressing scores of Zanu PF members at the annual environmental fair which was held at Tongogara High School in Shurugwi.
The Zanu PF National Chairman said his party’s constitution has no provision for factions.
He said those who belong to factions are way out of line and should leave the party.
The environmental fair was organised by the Legislator for Shurugwi North who is also Minister for Environment and Natural Resources Management, Francis Nhema.
The fair is aimed at educating communities on sustainable ways of using the environment.
Khaya Moyo also took a swipe at some senior party members whom he said were using money to sway views in the party.
He said his party will decisively deal wit such corrupt senior leaders.
Prior to his key note address, Simon Khaya Moyo toured various company stands that were exhibiting at the environmental fair.
The fair was graced by the Senator for Shurugwi who is also Minister of Foreign Affairs, Simbarashe Mumbengegwi, the former Governor and Resident Minister for the Midlands Province, Cephas Msipa, the Legislator for Shurugwi South, Annastancia Ndlovu, Amai Sekeramayi, the Minister of Environment and Natural Resources Management, Francis Nhema and other senior government and Zanu PF officials.
Meanwhile, Zanu PF loyalists have condemned the MDC-T party for trying to hoodwink Zimbabweans into accepting a compromised draft constitution which deliberately omitted crucial views and includes foreign agendas.
The condemnation follows the launching of MDC-T’s campaign for a ‘Yes’ vote for the current draft constitution in the capital.
During the launch MDC-T leader, Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai said his party endorsed the draft constitution in its state, and added that his party sees no problems with issues such as devolution, citizenship and that they needed former white commercial farmers to return into the country.
Following the launch, President Mugabe's supporters condemned the campaign with Goodwills Masimirembwa labeling the campaign an act of desperation from the party which panders to the whims of its western paymasters.
Murewa South legislator, Joel Biggie Matiza, lashed out at the MDC-T campaign saying, Zimbabweans never voted for the inclusion of gay rights in the party, and will never accept a constitution which leaves out their aspirations while it is premised on foreign agendas.
The document which the MDC-T party is attempting to impose on the electorate is one which has been condemned by several legal experts who say that the three political parties must first agree on it whilst the greatest respect must be given to the views of the people as they spoke during the outreach programme of the constitution-making process.
