The Zanu PF Mashonaland West youth league has allegedly passed a vote of no-confidence against its chairperson, Vengai Musengi, and two other provincial executive members for allegedly disrespecting President Robert Mugabe and First Lady Grace.

The move, which follows recommendations from the women’s league to kick out Musengi and his team on allegations that they had been causing divisions within the party, was allegedly passed by 27 members, who accused the provincial youth league chairperson of fomenting factionalism among other political crimes.
Addressing a Press conference yesterday, provincial youth league secretary for information Tawanda Rupiya said Musengi, along with vice-chairman Joseph Nyariri and Silas Chimbiro, who was the secretary for administration, would now have their day before the national disciplinary committee chaired by Vice-President Phelekezela Mphoko.
“The above-mentioned have been on a spirited mission to cause political discord in the province by . . . creating parallel structures during the just-concluded restructuring exercise, promoting disunity among the youths and bringing the name of His Excellency and the First Lady into disrepute,” said Rupiya, who assumed the post of acting provincial youth chair.
Musengi, however, said he was unaware of the ouster.
