Former Vice President Joice Mujuru has come under fire from former officials of her own opposition party, the National People’s Party (NPP). Some of the officials accuse Mujuru of being a Zanu-PF spy who is on a mission to destabilise the opposition ranks. She has also been accused of dictatorship and nepotism.
Former NPP Harare provincial secretary for local government, Mlilo Joyinani in his resignation letter said:
I have since noticed that NPP is not for the people of Zimbabwe, but the Nzous (Mujuru’s totem), you, Dzikamai Mavhaire and that lawyer, who has never won a single case in his career.
We spent a whole day in April voting for our national top six, including you, and using our resources, but you gave yourself the powers to fire the treasurer we voted for, Wilbert Mubaiwa, and you did it.
NPP spokesperson, Jefferson Chitando, dismissed the allegations saying:
CIOs (Central Intelligence Organisation agents) in NPP only exist in your shallow mind and around your president’s Land Cruiser, which does not pay tollgate fees, get free service and fuel from the government of Zanu PF
Party secretary-general, Gift Nyandoro, also denied the allegations saying:
NPP is a sea of political membership that would not lose sleep over a purported evaporation of a drop of regime-sponsored salty water.
