Suspended Zanu PF Politburo member and former Cabinet minister, Webster Shamu was humiliated last week on Thursday at a ZANU-PF rally at Kent in Norton where Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko had gone to drum up support for ZANU-PF’s Norton by-election candidate, Ronnie Chindedza.
Shamu and his wife’s attempts to join in the proceedings in the briefing room where the party’s leadership, led by Mphoko, were having a working lunch, hit a snag after they were ordered out.
In shame, they walked back to their car where they had their own packed lunch.
To add to their humiliation, youths operating the public address system disconnected the microphone as the former minister was about to chant the party slogan after he had sneaked to the podium.
Shamu was handed a five year suspension from the party for allegedly working with Joice Mujuru to plot against President Mugabe.
