ZANU PF party’s national spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo said that the re-emerging pattern of votes of no confidence is uncalled for and would cause anarchy within the party.
His statement comes after the ZANU PF Youth League national executive passed a vote of no confidence in its top leadership. In Mashonaland West Province, the executive council removed the treasurer, Mary Mliswa from her post. Moyo had this to say:
Previously, disunity forces under the G40 cabal used votes-of-no-confidence to purge party members perceived to be against their destabilisation agenda.
Summary dismissal of a party official through a vote-of-no-confidence should only be occasioned in extraordinary circumstances and can only be passed upon gross incompetence and/or dereliction of duty, gross misconduct or disloyalty and treachery.
Membership rights are sacrosanct, hence they should always unreservedly be observed. The principles of natural justices must be the underlining factor.
ZANU PF factional fights reached their zenith in 2017 when the two main factions at the time, Team Lacoste and G40, fought for the soul of the party through votes of no confidence.
