Tafara-Mabvuku legislator James Maridadi has accused Local Government Minister Saviour Kasukuwere of hypocrisy for suspending Chitungwiza town councillors despite the fact that all he has are allegations. Maridadi said that Kasukuwere was acting as the “judge, the jury and the executioner.” He also reminded Kasukuwere that he is facing several allegations himself, yet he has not been suspended. Kasukuwere is facing allegations of engaging in illegal land deals in Pomona as well as plotting to topple President Mugabe.
Said Maridadi in Parliament:
There are certain allegations that you took land in Pomona and you said $5 million should be paid to (Philip) Chiyangwa so that you would sort out his issue on land but you were not suspended as a Minister.
You remained as Minister because the President knows the law that you cannot be chased away because of allegations but you are suspending people for selling a few stands whilst you are alleged to have stolen the whole of Pomona.
Kasukuwere responded by dismissing Maridadi as radio disc jockey who still thought he was addressing kids. Said Kasukuwere:
I know your background my dear brother; you used to play with kids on radio station.
I am sure you think you are still playing with kids. It is a different circumstance now.
