Mugabe launches investigations into allegations that Kasukuwere is plotting to oust him

Posted by Tayana

Zanu-PF leader President Robert Mugabe has launched an investigation into allegations against the party’s political commissar Saviour Kasukuwere despite the majority of Zanu PF provinces passing resolutions calling for the Local Government minister’s ouster. The Standard reports that Mugabe today dispatched a high- powered delegation led by Zanu PF secretary for administration Ignatius Chombo to Mashonaland Central to ask Kasukuwere’s accusers to prove their claims.

Chombo’s delegation will be comprised of Defence minister Sydney Sekeramayi, State Security minister Kembo Mohadi, Senate president Edna Madzongwe and women’s league commissar Mabel Chinomona. Chombo wrote to Zanu PF Mashonaland Central secretary for administration, Wonder Mashange, calling for today’s Provincial Co-ordinating Committee (PCC) meeting. The letter was also copied to Kasukuwere, George Rutanhire, a politburo member, the provincial chairperson, Dickson Mafios and his deputy Kazembe Kazembe as well as Martin Dinha. A Zanu-PF source told The Standard that Mugabe does not believe Kasukuwere wants to topple him and that calls for the local government minister’s ouster are personal.
