A Go Fund Me account has been set up to buy expelled traditional leader, Chief Ndiweni a car after the government stripped him of the vehicle and other benefits after his removal from the post by president Emmerson Mnangagwa. The administrators of the account posted saying:
Chief Ndiweni of Ntabazinduna is the only living Chief after his father who has constructively criticized the Government of Zimbabwe for its use of repression, violence against citizens, corruption, incompetence, nepotism and mismanagement.
For that reason, he has courted the ire and heavy-handedness of the ZANU-PF Government of Emmerson Mnangagwa.
The Emmerson Mnangagwa Government of Zimbabwe had him thrown into Khami prison recently and the Chief was also abused by their State media outlets.
The Emmerson Mnangagwa Government of Zimbabwe has now stripped Chief Ndiweni of the Ndiweni Chieftainship, something that in itself is unprocedural.
The Emmerson Mnangagwa Government of Zimbabwe has ordered the return of Chief Ndiweni’s Government-issued vehicle.
For that reason, as citizens, we felt we have a moral obligation to make sure that this is not used as an example to other Chiefs by setting up a citizen initiative to get a car for Chief Ndiweni.
We have set up a Go Fund Account for that purpose and we also want this to be a precedent for any other Chief in Zimbabwe who is stripped of their Chieftainship for standing with the people!
This will allow other Chiefs to speak freely knowing that they have nothing to lose for doing so, something that the Emmerson Mnangagwa Government and Robert Mugabe and Ian Smith Governments before it have used to get the traditional leaders to tow the undemocratic line
Let us come together and show our solidarity with Chief Ndiweni in this cause.

We thank you all.
