Addressing a news conference in Harare yesterday, Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association spokesperson, Douglas Mahiya called for Professor Jonathan Moyo’s arrest and firing from Zanu-PF for proposing Sydney Sekeramayi as President Robert Mugabe’s possible successor.
Mahiya also called for the arrest and firing of Saviour Kasukuwere and Patrick Zhuwao, who attended a Sapes Trust debate last Thursday where Moyo made the suggestion. He said that Moyo should undergo the same treatment they received when they proposed Emmerson Mnangagwa as Mugabe’s successor. Said Mahiya:
Now that Jonathan Moyo, Zhuwao and Kasukuwere have declared their preferred candidate loudly and clearly and that candidate is not the President, as called for by the party constitution, what happened to us must happen to them, including incarceration and State prosecution.
Dockets must be opened for undermining the authority of the State President, unlike the alleged communiqué, which referred to the party president.
Zhuwao and Kasukuwere should also be found guilty by the party politburo for being accomplices of Moyo, as has happened to our chairman, Christopher Mutsvangwa, for associating with the generality of the war veterans who are wallowing in poverty.
