I still respect my seniors — Bhasikiti

HARARE - Expelled Zanu PF provincial minister for Masvingo Province, Kudakwashe Bhasikiti says he still respects his party superiors even after he was shown the exit door in favour of veteran but controversial politician, Shuvai Mahofa.

Bhasikiti yesterday rubbished claims by Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa carried in the State media saying that he had raised money to fund the ouster of President Robert Mugabe in favour of fired vice president Joice Mujuru.

Bhasikiti said he actually raised money for the party’s congress and not to fight Mugabe. Despite the allegations by Mnangagwa that he wanted Mugabe out, Bhasikiti said he still respected the new Vice President as his senior in the party.

In a statement to the Daily News yesterday, Bhasikiti said: “May I give the correct facts with regards to statements which appeared in the Sunday Mail and the Standard alluding that Bhasikiti got money from Tongaat and Bikita Minerals.

“I was appointed to chair the Masvingo congress fundraising sub-committee, where I appealed to individuals and corporates to donate generously towards our party’s congress. Tongaat Hullet donated $20 000 which it deposited directly into our Zanu PF account at the party headquarters. Bikita Minerals donated $20 000 in the Zanu PF account at Bank ABC in Masvingo which was transferred to the party’s HQ account. As is procedural all proceeds were directed to the party HQ, as had been raised.

“A total of $63 000 and 23 beasts becoming the record contribution over the years when Masvingo had not managed to raise any amount above $20 000 in previous years. Hope this clarifies the misconceptions which had been raised by the two newspapers,” said Bhasikiti.

He is still singing for his super! He has no choice because without ZANU PF he is going to starve. If disgrace was to kick him in the mouth he would actually say thank you, thank you very much. What an idiot, a real basket case for sure.

Makaonekwa vaBasikiti. Can't you see that you are being given respect by leaving you outside jail. They could be investigating while you are in. Tinyararirei apa!
