The ZANU-PF Secretary for Administration, Obert Mpofu claimed that the party is being destroyed by lies, gossip and money.
Mpofu made the staggering claims during an inter-district meeting at Davies Hall in Bulawayo on Saturday. Said Mpofu:
This is the issue that we are here to talk about and try to identify the challenges that are bedevilling us as a province.
As you can see the lies and falsehoods started spreading before we even came to Bulawayo that we were coming to destroy structures here and start afresh, that we were going to change many things and introduce new measures which were all lies.
Can people try and live by the truth as lies, gossip and money are what is killing the party.
This is why we sat down in Harare and said we need to look into Harare and Bulawayo provinces issues.
There is nothing that is very complex in Bulawayo but the truth of the matter is that we need to open up to each other and be leaders that speak the truth.
We have to be truthful about the number of cells that we have, if they are 10, just tell us that there are 10, if you lie about this figure then you send false messages to leadership which is not correct.
