Zanu PF expels Mujuru on Grace return

HARARE - On the day that powerful First Lady Grace Mugabe returned to the Zanu PF politburo, the faction-riddled party yesterday expelled deposed Vice President Joice Mujuru (pictured) claiming she was indisciplined.

As the brutal purges instigated by Grace continue, the party’s politburo resolved to expel Mujuru and just like former Presidential affairs minister Didymus Mutasa and maverick politician Temba Mliswa, the ex-VP was never summoned for hearing.

According to ZBC reports last night, Mujuru was fired for “indiscipline”.

Zanu PF is undertaking brutal purges of all its senior officials perceived to be sympathetic to the former vice president. Former party spokesperson Rugare Gumbo and fiery ex-war veterans’ leader Jabulani Sibanda were also given the boot.

Yesterday’s meeting also upheld the votes-of no-confidence passed on other party members ahead of the Zanu PF congress held in December last year.

Mujuru also lost her government position as vice president soon after the congress for yet-to-be-proven charges of plotting to topple President Robert Mugabe as well as plotting to assassinate him.

Other ministers who were sacked alongside Mujuru included ICT minister Webster Shamu, minister of State for Mashonaland East province Simba Mudarikwa, Indigenisation minister Francis Nhema, Higher and Tertiary Education minister Olivia Muchena, Labour and Public Service minister Nicholas Goche, Presidential Affairs minister Didymus Mutasa, Energy minister Dzikamai Mavhaire and his deputy Munacho Mutezo.

Kudakwashe Bhasikiti, the former Masvingo presidential Affairs minister, was the latest in a list of casualties the brutal purges against the ex-VP’s sympathisers have claimed.

One legislator two weeks ago said the parliament is tooo big for the economy and there is need to adjust to our economic environment. Nobody showed interest, the bloated government need adjustment , agian no interest they are the majority in parliament. those clauses i did wrong in the constitution why are they not rectifying it since they have autonomy. they have no national interest, taking advantage of loop holes to loot the more whilst the sun still shines for them. When legistaltors steal community funds whilst in parliament what more do you want and nothing happens. Is that my problem????? When one big man owns matebeleland and vic falls yet he is a civil servant do you need a rocket scientist to show or prove that corruption is at its maximum and unabaited. Another big man owns harare open spaces and perpheral farms and 65 houses in the northern surbubs all documented and publicized do you need yet another rocket scientist?
