CHINHOYI — Aspiring Zanu PF Mashonaland West provincial chairman Philip Chiyangwa was on Saturday ejected out of a provincial executive meeting where he had allegedly gate-crashed.

Sources said Chiyangwa, who had resisted ejection, only agreed to leave after the John Mafa-led executive threatened to unleash the party’s security personnel on him.

Chiyangwa confirmed the incident, but hit back at the executive accusing it of “overstaying its mandate” and convening a “kangaroo court” to frustrate his bid to campaign for the chairman’s post.

“The meeting was supposed to deal with conference issues, but I was surprised to hear them talking about Chiyangwa not being coopted and that I should leave the room. I only complied because I could see that they were after me because I’m contesting Mafa for the chairmanship,” Chiyangwa said.

Chiyangwa labelled Mafa a “non –performer”, adding that the current exercise wanted to frustrate all candidates for the provincial posts.

Chiyangwa is set to lock horns with Mafa, Sanyati MP Blessing Geza and Hurungwe West MP Temba Mliswa for the chairman’s post. The provincial elections were stopped at the 11th hour last month following allegations of vote-buying by some of the candidates.

Sources said the Saturday meeting was also reported to have instituted a probe team to investigate Hurungwe East MP Sarah Mahoka over allegations of tampering with the party’s grassroots structures to influence the outcome of the provincial elections whose date is yet to be announced.

Contacted for comment yesterday, Mafa said: “Chiyangwa may say whatever he wants, but the truth is that the meeting was a provincial executive committee meeting and there are 34 members of the committee and he happened to be the 35th.

“What does the decision of the provincial committee have to do with my performance? If he is a good performer, let’s wait for the elections and see if he is rewarded for his so-called good performance,” Mafa said.

  2. This is turning into a MAFIOSO debacle..Some of these people are too ambitious yet kuti ZANU PF chii havazive. They just want to be leaders..opportunists

  3. Mafa , a non performer? No it’s Chiyangwa the sole looser in the last election. Haunzwe ! Kuma kurara wakapfeka butsu futi

  4. let the implosion begin now i know one day in Zimbabwe they wont be a political party named zanu pf.have you heard about the charade that became the zanu pf provincial elections in Mash Central over the weekend,i tell you the day Mugabe goes he will take Zanu with him,the same way Saddam took his Baath party with him.

  5. Chiyangwa is not cut out to be a politician and must leave Mafa and other executives to run the Province. His money cannot win the hearts and minds of supporters in the Province.

  6. Cde Phillip Chiyangwa, is a true leader and will always be, the chairmanship is his and that’s why rivals are in fear. just wait till elections and see..Pamberi ne Zanu PF ,Pamberi na Phidza !!

  7. this incident brings to me the words of one song which goes “UYU NDAKAMUTIMIRA MWANA UYU NDIKAMUTUMIRA TSAMBA KO IWE WANO TSVANGE NAANI, SHUNGE YERE SHUNGU IWE” loosely translated it means “an occasion is for invited guests only!”

  8. imbopaiwoo mafa mukana wekubaa ana phidza hamugute mari…mafa anoda kumbogadzira nhaka yevana vake kaa saka phidza usarwadziwe chimbopa vamwe mukana vambo bawooo vaitewo mari sewee. Mabasa kaayaa unga ngonzi chisiya ndipindewo ini hazviiti kuzanu izvozvo aya mazuva okupedzisira fut saka mafa usabve kusvika 2018

  9. The problem is ZanuPf is a cartel of criminals and everybody who has something to hide will sacrifice his dignity to be part of that. i don’t see if Chiyangwa has money as he says he should be worried about being in any of this mafia structures. There is a lot of cover up on any bad tghey do hiding behind zanupf saka vachitundira chembere mumbare umu they abuse the party and they are protected.
