A Zanu PF Youth Official from Mutare reportedly attacked self-proclaimed Pastor Passion Java and accused him of disrespecting President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Java was reportedly near his church premises in Mutare when Zanu PF Youth Chair for Ward 11, Heaven Chihono attacked him and soiled his clothes.
Speaking to the publication Chihono told a journalist that he had been sent by his superiors to embarrass Java:
My brother, I was working on orders from my superiors. This was the reason why there was no much resistance, we told some bouncers from here in Mutare that we would come after them.
I took brake fluid oil, mud, water and urine and I put it in one bottle, then I soiled him. He is not respecting our president.
I disarmed one of the guards, I took his pistol. I do not think he is trained. I then returned his pistol after I soiled his boss.
However, Chihono’s boss, a Zanu PF youth chairperson Tawanda Mukodza condemned his behavior saying:
Zanu PF is an ideological party, we don’t condone such behaviour. We don’t do such behaviour in the name of the party. If it is true that he is using the name of the party to do such things, we are going to take disciplinary action against him.
We are always talking of discipline in our meetings, but let me find out first what happened on the ground and carry out our own investigation. I don’t lead rebels.
Java a controversial figure made headlines last week as he gave people money when he went to Moana’s funeral service at Doves.
