Zanu PF youths boo Mujuru ally

SEKE MP Phineas Chihota was on Tuesday booed by a group of rowdy Zanu PF youths from Mashonaland East province who called for his expulsion from the party for allegedly working in cahoots with ousted former Vice-President Joice Mujuru to topple President Robert Mugabe.

The incident happened at Dema business centre in the presence of Mashonaland East Provincial Affairs minister Joel Biggie Matiza.

The dozen-plus youths waved anti-Chihota placards and accused him of corruption and fanning factionalism.

Some of the placards read: Chihota haudi Mugabe, How far neCDF? and Pasi naChihota.

Both Chihota and Matiza did not respond and remained seated at the high table when one of the youths advanced to the legislator and accused him of making unilateral decisions in the constituency. Chihota, who was Zanu PF provincial secretary for administration in the dissolved Ray Kaukonde-led executive, could not be reached for comment after Tuesday’s drama.
