It’s official! President Robert Mugabe has fired his deputy Joice Mujuru and eight ministers accused of being behind a plot to topple him from power.

The official list released Tuesday afternoon shows Mugabe has sacked eight ministers all linked to Mujuru.

Those fired include Presidential Affairs minister Didymus Mutasa who was also party secretary for administration, Labour minister Nicholas Goche, Indigenisation minister Francis Nhema, Higher and Tertiary Education minister Olivia Muchena, ICT minister Webster Shamu (Zanu PF political Commissar) and Mahonaland East Provincial Affairs minister Simbaneuta Mudarikwa.

Earlier reports said Mugabe fired Energy minister Dzikamai Mavhaire and his deputy Munacho Mutezo.

Mujuru received her dismissal letter on Monday night after weeks of accusations that she had led a “treacherous cabal” to try to unseat Mugabe.

Mujuru, in a press statement, on Tuesday blamed “a well-orchestrated smear campaign and gross abuse of state apparatus” that led to the loss of her ruling party post and shook Zimbabwean politics.

Mujuru, who once looked likely to succeed long-ruling Mugabe, has been accused of plotting to assassinate the 90-year-old and removed from the ruling ZANU-PF party’s central committee.

She said she was being victimised after exposing infiltrators conspiring to destroy the party, which has ruled the country since independence in 1980.

“I have become the fly in the web of lies whose final objective is the destruction of ZANU-PF and what it stands for and ultimately the present government,” Mujuru said in a statement.

“A vociferous attempt has been made to portray me as ‘a traitor’, ‘murderer’ and ‘sellout’, yet no iota of evidence has been produced to give credence to the allegations.”

ZANU-PF held an elective congress last week which endorsed Mugabe as president and his wife Grace as head of the women’s wing.

  1. Factionalism aside these guys presided over the worst corrupt ministry. They created a virtual monopoly over fuel importation with one local oil company being the beneficiary. They allowed puma energy to buy dtakes in two major oil companies in violation of competition laws. The perm sec should have gone as well.

    1. GOOD ADVICE: do something for yourself, for your family. Don’t waste your time talking about these already rich politicians while you are poor. Other people are enjoying their lives with money without even paying attention to these dirty politicians. See how this poor Zimbabwean woman became a millionaire just by buying and selling cheap/old/broken houses in any city.. Very interesting. Go to PROPERTIESINYOURCITY.COM to see all 5 companies that she was dealing with to do this business. PROPERTIESINYOURCITY.COM , Wake up African people.

    2. forward ever, backwards never! Shuffle shuffle shufle. We need loyal performers and we need to hold people accountable right at the top. All ministers who have achieved nathing since being appointed should go. This is a new beginning in zim governance. performance measures should be put and these minister should be measured annually if you do not perform you are removed

      1. You got it all wrong Michael. These people were not fired for incompetence rather for perceived disloyalty against their employer. Some of the worst performing ministers are still in office. These guys will be replaced by the worst spittle lickers I bet. One that readily comes to mind is Absalom Sikhosana. Or even Chinos. Its not about performance at the office, rather performance elsewhere!!!!

    3. Which faction does he belong to if he is should the Mujuru faction then he is toast!

    4. Zanu haidyiki vanhuwe!!!! U get my drift……

  2. Thank you for getting rid of Mavhaire. We will not miss him at all. PLEASE ALSO REVERSE HIS REFORMS AND ALLOW US TO CHOOSE WHICH FUEL WE PUT IN OUR CARS. PLEASE!

    1. Hacha Ndizvo Dr

      They should all be fired

    2. kkkk, mavhaire got it coming…only last year, following his appointment as minister, he was going on about how he would sack ministry officials because it was his prerogative to do so…contemptuously stating that he would appoint officials at his pleasure. his words, i am sure, have come back to haunt him.

  3. Yohweeee maihwe kani…!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No more benefits todira nzimbe idzodzo tese tichidhurirwa tese

    1. They were not fired for incompetence and corruption but for sympathising with Mujuru. Corruption, ineptitude, incompetence, stealing are not dismissable offences in ZanuPF, you actually get promoted. What is makes you get dismissed is asking a tired old man to rest.

  5. Inga zvavarikutowanda vanhu vacho, manje manje TEAM inokwana. HOKOYO! Chenjera kurowha 2 not. Ndanyarara hangu.

  6. Good president.magona.investigate Mavhaire akatengerwa imba nezesa kugreystone park .kutanga riini minister achitengerwa imba neparastatal.

So gullible who do you think instructed the issue of fuel blending , muri madofo which is why Zambians and Malawains have proved to be better people , they do not accept such rubbish .

  11. Only those who think Chief Mugabe is a genius will applaud his actions, as for me it makes no difference.Those people only carried out his orders now that they tried to challenge him he dumps them.For those in the engineering field,its just like replacing a shifting spanner.As long as he is the last man, it will get worse,those who have remained and the new recruits will bow to him to remain under his arm pit.

    1. You have that one right! This is the self-destruct mode of Zanu PF!

    2. Agreed! It has never happened in Zim before, true. Mugabe’s firing of people is not about the economy or the people, it’s all about his life. These are the people whom he felt were posing a real threat to his person. In any case. Joice Mujuru was fired a long time ago by Grace Mugabe. It was just a matter of time.

  12. So are these the surprise announcements we were promised before congress by the president? What a joke

  13. The surprise announcement is coming tomorrow when Gire will be appointed VP.

  17. Whatch out all those who are fighting 4 da post wil b surprised with no posts after bieng used.

    1. Many will find themselves being hunted down in the purge, it is not over yet!

  18. Here we go; Zanu PF has now reach its self-destruct stage and there is no going back! Zanu PF is a party of ruthless thugs that they should be turning on each other was as certain as day following night. The party was always bound to end with the members tiring each other to pieces!

  19. Look at Bob’s right ankle in the picture, its only a matter of time before he can’t walk.

  20. WILLARD MUBVUMBI

    Get rid of all é cabinet and put a lean, efficient and corrupt free. Some ministers have been in é same ministries for ages, WHY not change them? You should also investigate some ministers on how they acquired their wealth.

  21. This is simply creating a monopoly, in politics. I will beleave the day I will SEE OBERT MPOFU, IGNATIUS CHOMBO, AND MNANGAGWA also sacked for corruption then I will believe that this country has a future.

    Section 97 of the Presidential Powers Act of the new constitution that is now in effect reads as follows:

    (1) The senate and national assembly, by a joint resolution passed by at least one half of their total membership, may resolve that the question to remove the President or Vice President should be removed from the office for –
    (a) serious misconduct
    (b) failure to obey, uphold this constitution;
    (c) wilful violation of this constitution or
    (d) inability to perform the functions of the office because of mental or physical incapacity;
    should be investigated in terms of this section.
    (2) Upon the passing of a resolution in terms of sub section (1) the committee on standing rules and orders must appoint a joint committee of the Senate and National Assembly consisting of 9 members reflecting the political composition of Parliament, to investigate the removal of the President or Vice President as the case may be.
    (3) If –
    (a) The joint committee appointed in terms of subsection (2) recommends the removal from office of the President or Vice President; and
    (b) The Senate and National Assembly, by s joint resolution passed by at least two thirds of their total membership, resolve that the president or vice president, as the case may be, should be removed from office;

  33. MUGABE IS GAY. Zimbabwean people have turned out to be a big joke. Turning to FAKE prophets everyday. Making our country look worse and worse. Zanu P(assive) F(ags) is the Worst and most Horrible Political Party in the World. Zimbabwe is slowly turning into North Korea. And the people are just sitting there looking. Hameno kuti kupata here kana kuti kudini. Muno muHarare, kuswero pfeka masvutu enhema asi mukati ku pata chete. Zanu Passive Fags. (ngochani) should be put to sleep. Na Chibaba, Ngaachizorora.
