The trio of Godfrey Tsenengamu (Mashonaland Central), Vengai Musengi (Mashonaland West) and Godwin Gomwe (Harare) is set to appear before a sub-committee chaired by State Security minister Kembo Mohadi.
“We were advised that the hearing has been postponed to tomorrow (today). They said some members of the panel were not present,” Tsenengamu said.
“However, we are not moved in any way by the hearing. It actually makes no difference to us. We know they want to expel us, but that is neither here nor there.
We volunteered to join Zanu PF and no one can chuck us out.
“In fact, the hearing will pave way for a hearing for people like First Lady Grace Mugabe, who has been given live broadcast on national television to insult other party officials. The likes of (Women’s League finance secretary) Sarah Mahoka, (national commissar) Saviour Kasukuwere and other culprits should be tried as well,” he said.
Gomwe likened those targeting them to opposition politicians and accused them of having low regard for war veterans.
“War veterans are our fathers and we cannot fold our hands when they are being attacked. If they are attacked, then why did we fight [opposition MDC-T leader Morgan] Tsvangirai, who has low regard for them? We expect (deputy secretary for youth Kudzi (Chipanga), Mahoka and Kasukuwere to be tried as well. Without war veterans, Zanu PF is nothing and even the President [Robert Mugabe] cannot do without them,” he said.
Musengi implored the ruling party to treat all members fairly.
