Zanu PF bigwig, Cleveria Chizema suspended over #Zanupfmustgo posters
A SENIOR Zanu PF official and Politburo
member, Cleveria Chizema was Wednesday suspended from the party with immediate
effect after she was found in possession of fliers and placards for the planned
July 31 mass protests.
Zanu PF acting spokesperson Patrick Chinamasa
confirmed the suspension at a media briefing Wednesday after a Politburo
meeting that was chaired by President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
“The Politburo has unanimously directed there
be thorough investigations of the matter, how the fliers were delivered to her
home, why she did not report the matter to the rightful authorities either or
security department or the security department in the government of the
commissariat who are responsible for discipline within the party,” the ruling
party spokesperson said.
Chizema is also a senator in Parliament and
her possession of what Zanu PF has branded as subversive material has exposed
the deep-seated factional fights in the ruling party.
