Zanu-PF Mashonaland West province has joined calls for Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa to be expelled from his position in the party and Government. The resolution was made at a Provincial Executive Council (PEC) meeting and was announced by acting provincial secretary for administration Farai Charakatenda.
The council also recommended the expulsion from the party of politburo member Prisca Mupfumira and Zvimba West legislator Ziyambi Ziyambi who are perceived Mnangagwa loyalists. Ziyambi, however opposed his ouster and requested to know reasons for the recommendation arguing he has never defied party leadership or the party constitution and that he always sought advice from his seniors including provincial chairman Ephraim Chengeta.
Earlier on today, the Zanu PF Youth League also called for Mnangagwa’s immediate removal from the position of vice president both in the party and government. The call started with Bulawayo province yesterday and Zanu PF Mashonaland Central province followed suit.
