The ruling ZANU PF party has fired Chivi South Member of Parliament Killer Zivhu with immediate effect.
The controversial politician was sacked from the party following a ZANU PF politburo meeting held this Wednesday at the party’s headquarters in Harare.
Zivhu has blamed his sacking on unnamed politburo official who he says owes him US$1.5 million.
He added that he reported the official to the Zimbabwe Anti-corruption Commission (ZACC) in an effort to recover his money and this has ultimately led to his sacking. Said Zivhu:
My effort to recover 1.5 million USD from the most powerful Politburo member yandidzingisa (led to my sacking). I reported him to ZACC and I was about to give them evidence. The Chamisa story is just a cooked one. The man was so vicious in the Politburo meeting today to make sure ndadzingwa (that I was fired).
I will remain a Zanu pf member by heart and support the President on his vision 2030. I will not stand as Independent whatever comes. I love Zanu pf the people in my constituency will forever cherish my work.
In August last year, Zivhu was suspended from the party by the Masvingo provincial district committee after he called for dialogue between President Emmerson Mnangagwa and MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa.
Zivhu was saved from the chop by the party’s National Political Commissar, Victor Matemadanda, who warned the Masvingo Provincial Coordinating Committee (PCC) that expelling party members only worked to weaken the party.
