In an interview with The Herald, Zanu-PF Politburo member Tshinga Dube clarified that he has not quit politics but will not contest for the Makokoba Constituency seat in 2023.
Dube said he will continue to work with Makokoba and for Zanu-PF. He is the deputy secretary for Finance in Zanu-PF. Said Dube:
I will continue to support my constituency though I am a losing Member of Parliament. Those people have loyalty in me. I am a stockholder and not a stakeholder. I will always be working for the party and the party will always deploy me as it sees fit as they have done now. I do not think my age will allow me. I am capable of serving the party now, but I do not think it will be fair to contest in 2023. It will need someone stronger to take over.
