The ZANU PF national youth league on Wednesday passed a vote of no confidence in its leadership. Those to be shown the exit door are the league’s leader Pupurai Togarepi, Togarepi’s deputy, Lewis Matutu and secretary for administration Tendai Chirau.
NewZimbabwe.com sources claim that the decision made by the league was part of the ongoing fight between ZANU PF first secretary Emmerson Mnangagwa and his deputy Constantino Chiwenga. Mnangagwa is said to be frantically trying to clip his deputy’s wings for him to take total control of the party.
Chirau confirmed the development to NewZimbabwe.com. He said:
It is true that a vote of no confidence has been passed on five members of the youth league national executive. I am part of the five.
However, the vote of no confidence is subject to confirmation from the national disciplinary committee of the party.
Chirau however, said he was not given the reasons for the no-confidence vote. In its statement, the ZANU PF youth league claimed that the top five leaders had failed to fully defend party President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
