Zanu-PF provincial chairpersons have called on former President Robert Mugabe to be fired from the party after he said Emmerson Mnangagwa ascended to power following a coup d’e tat.
Zanu-PF Matabeleland North provincial chairperson Richard Moyo said Mugabe should be expelled if he is behind the formation of the Ambrose Mutinhiri led National Patriotic Front. Said Moyo:
The new development is sad because we have supported him for the past 37 years. If what we are reading is true, then he would have expelled himself from the party. As a province, we condemn him.
Midlands provincial chairperson Daniel Mackenzie Ncube said Mugabe should be fired from the party if he continues making “reckless statements.” Said Ncube:
As Midlands province, we condemn this kind of behaviour from a person whom we had reposed a lot of respect. If he continues making such reckless statements we recommend that he be fired from the party just like his wife.
Masvingo provincial chairperson Ezra Chadzamira said Mugabe should be fired. Said Chadzamira:
We no longer have that respect we used to give him as a father figure. Younger generations have nothing to learn from that. He should be fired. No person is bigger than the party.
