Mutsvangwa, General Rugeje Clash Over Imposition of Candidates

Christopher Mutsvangwa the special adviser to President Emmerson Mnangagwa is reported to have clashed with Zanu-PF’s National Commissar, Lieutenant-General (retired) Engelbert Rugeje. The two men are said to have almost traded blows as Mustvangwa accused Rugeje of imposing candidates. Mutsvangwa who is running for the Norton seat was unhappy that Rugeje approved Webster Shamu’s wife, Constance, to contest the Norton seat.

Sources who spoke to NewsDay said,

Mutsvangwa told Rugeje that he was the worst political commissar that the party has ever had and Rugeje was not amused and they nearly traded blows before they all cooled down and people present restrained them…Mutsvangwa threatened to hold a Press conference denouncing Rugeje and the whole process, saying whoever made him the political commissar would fire him if he continued to defy Mutsvangwa.

Shamu wanted to impose his wife in Norton constituency when she does not come from there…I told Rugeje and we solved the issue and had a handshake. Rugeje simply dropped Shamu’s wife.
