The Zanu-PF Masvingo provincial co-ordinating committee (PCC) has supported the decision by Mashonaland Central in calling for the removal of National Political Commissar, Saviour Kasukuwere from his post. The under-fire Kasukuwere is being accused of plotting to topple President Robert Mugabe and corruption among other charges.
Zanu-PF Masvingo also suspended political commissar Jappy Jaboon, for creating parallel structures in the province, among other charges. It also recommended the demotion of Masvingo Urban legislator and Deputy Secretary for Transport and Welfare in the Politburo Daniel Shumba from his post for fanning divisions in the part.
Zanu-PF Masvingo provincial secretary for administration Cde Ailess Baloyi said:
We did not resolve to have him (Kasukuwere) necessarily expelled from the party, but we no longer want him to continue in as the Zanu-PF Political Commissar. It’s up to the national leadership to see what they can do with him, whether to redeploy him or what, but we no longer want him to continue as political commissar.
