‘Anti-Grace’ pair face Zanu PF boot

Zanu PF deputy national youth secretary Kudzai Chipanga said the youth league will at the next politburo meeting recommend the expulsion of two suspended Zanu PF youth leaders — Godfrey Tsenengamu and Vengai Musengi — for allegedly denigrating President Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace.

“As the youth league, those two are no longer part of us, they are as good opposition,” he said.

“We are going to recommend their expulsion. The day we are going to have our next politburo meeting, their fate will be sealed.”

Tsenengamu (Mashonaland Central) and Musengi (Mashonaland West) were suspended together with Godwin Gomwe (Harare) on allegations of publicly denigrating Grace and other top leaders.

But after they were suspended, they teamed up and formed an organisation, Save Zanu PF Campaign, which they used to further attack Grace, particularly after her Chiweshe rally, where she accused Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa of causing divisions in the party.

The three have appeared in public several times castigating Grace, who is allegedly linked to the G40 faction in Zanu PF, which is reportedly fighting to block Mnangagwa from succeeding Mugabe.

The three were supposed to appear before a disciplinary committee chaired by State Security minister Kembo Mohadi on Monday.
“We no longer have space for unrepentant cadres,” Chipanga charged.

“Zanu PF is bigger than individuals. We are going to expel them and they can safely join Morgan Tsvangirai’s MDC-T or Tendai Biti’s People’s Democratic Party.

“They have failed to conduct themselves honourably even when they are serving suspensions. They have denigrated the President and his wife. We will show them that no one is untouchable in Zanu PF.”

Mugabe, while he was celebrating his 92nd birthday in Masvingo at the weekend, said the party would deal sternly with youths who do not respect their elders, particularly him, as the President of the party and his wife.

Tsenengamu was not reachable yesterday, while Gomwe was not answering his phone.

    When is the first lady gonna hold her next rallies? We are now deprived of news. Am sure these days newspaper sales are nosediving as a result of the first lady not going on with her rallies. Newspaper companies should thank the first lady becoz, she is the one who boost their sales. Where are you, SOKO, tasuwa kuseka. Kikikiki

    They are disciplining anti-Grace supporters only. People like Sarah Mahoka who insulted and belittled VP MNANGAGWA in public are not disciplined. Glaring selective application of Zanu Pf constitution. How can discipline be enforced In the Party with this approach? Discipline and Respect should start with ZANU PF leaders themselves including Grace,Tyson,Mphoko etc.

    Grace is a national security threat to the Country. Iwo marally akarambidzwa chaizvo nhai. How can she move around donating Government equipment when she is not in Govt. Whether you like it or not Grace, Mnangagwa is your senior in the party because ndiye second in charge iwe wakango fanana naObert Mpofu.

    cHIPANGA SHOULD NOT BE LEFT UN CHECKED ,OF ALL THE PEOPLE CHIPANGA CAN NOT TALK OR COMMENT OF RESPECT OR DISCIPLINE,HE DOES NOT RESPECT EVEN THE COURTS OF THIS NATION.YOU ARE ALSO TOUCHABLE COMRADE.
    I AM NOT DEFENDING THE ACCUSED BUT FACTS SHOULD BE LAYED BARE FOR JUSTICE S SAKE.SOME CADRES WERE EXPELLED OR SUSPENDED WITHOUT A HEARING ALLEGED TO BE A MUJURU CABAL WHILE THEY ARE NOT TILL TODAY.THE ZANU PF PARTY HAS NO SINGLE OWNER THATS WHY IT IS GOVERNED BY A CONISITITUTION .

    THE DISCIPLINARY COMMITEE OF ZANU PF SHOULD BE DISSOLVED IF WE REALLY LOVE OUR PARTY .VP MPHOKO, SAVIOUR KASUKUWERE , FIRST LADY THEY SIT ON THE DISCIPLINARY COMMITEE WHILE THEY ARE THE ONES UTTERING TRIBAL AND FACTIONAL SPEECHES .HOW CAN NOW THE ACCUSER BECOME THE JUDGE .IS THE LAW APPLIED SELECTIVELY TO ITS OWN PEOPLE ACCORDING TO WHO SUPPORT WHO.CHIPANGA ,MAHOKA AND THE ABOVE LISTED MEMBERS SHOULD ALSO BE DISCIPLINED.WHERE DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO GO LIVING THE PARTY THEY LOVED SO MUCH.
    ANYBODY WHO LOVES THE PARTY AND IS NOT TREATED FAIRLY CAN NOT APPROACH THE PARTY ACCORDING TO PROCEDURES AND PROTOCOLS THE ACCUSER AND CONFUSION BREWER HAS BECOME THE JURY.WHEN IT IS THELIKES OF MAHOKA THEY SAY WE CAN NOT SPEND THE WHOLE YEAR DOING DISCIPLINARY HEARINGS BUT OTHERS TIME IS PLENTY.HOW UNFAIR.

    THE LAW OF THE LAND IS SUPREME COMRADES GO TO COURT ,THE VETARANS WERE SAVED FROM CHIMENE CYCLONE BY THE COURTS.MY ADVICE TO CDE CHINAMASA REMEMBER THE ETHICS OF YOUR PROFFESSION OTHEWISE YOU WILL TARNISH YOUR REPUTATION. TO AVOID INDIMIDATION GO WITH LAWYERS TO REPRESENT YOU.

    ALL THIS IS HAPPENING BECAUSE KASUKUWERE WAS ALLOWED TO DISREPECT SECRETARY FOR ADMINSTRATION CDE CHOMBO .CASE REFRENCE BEING THE GUMBO AND MUKUPE SAGA .AMAI IS NOT BEING ABUSED BUT SHE IS ABBUSING THE PARTY AND ITS STRUCTURES INCLUDING THE GOVERNMENT FUNCTIONS

      Writing in caps isn’t polite. It’s your choice but it is equivalent to shouting at someone

    how many elders do we have in Zim? Does it mean Grace Mugabe’s husband is the only person old enough to be respected?
    I want to thank Grace Mugabe for a work well done.
    She alone with the help of a few of course and those few in the dark has worked tirelessly hard for the collapse of ZANU PF.
    More heads are going to roll,I hope with less spilling of blood .

    Obviously these boys wanted to be fired and are much happier outside ZANU PF wakamboonepi Munhu ano forma operation save Zanu while on Suspension, and the way they responded to Mugabe’s Masvingo speech. They have already made their decision not to go back and Gomwe i heard he did not attend the NDC citing that their procedure is not constitutional therefore ana Chipanga ndivana Mucheka ya wora , anonzi Matanda Nyadzi , can not ake rejection well.
