The Zanu (PF) Harare province women’s league executive has passed a vote of no confidence in the vice chairperson Miriam Chikukwa, who has been the acting chairperson since Friday when Cde Angeline Matambanadzo was ousted.
32 members of the province’s women’s league executive passed the vote of no confidence in Cde Chikukwa over allegations of fanning factionalism.
Chikukwa is also the Minister of State for Harare Metropolitan province.
The axe also fell on political commissar Susan Chuma and committee member Constance Dembeko.
In a parallel meeting held at the provincial headquarters, Cde Godfrey Gomwe, who had earlier been sidelined by ousted leaders Amos Midzi and Tendai Savanhu, was reinstated to chair the Harare province youth league.
Soon after being reinstated, Gomwe immediately dispatched 5 executive members for bringing the name of the party into disrepute through factional tendencies.
Members of the Harare province youth league also allege they were coerced into signing a petition against Gomwe by the five ousted executives of Olivia Mususa, Tendai Dikwa, Clyde Metro, Andrew Tiriboi, Brian Hwenjere, and Munyaradzi Gomeza who are yet to be replaced.
Omega Hungwe is now the Zanu PF Harare province women’s league chairperson.
Meanwhile 31 Zanu PF members in Harare Province from Mbare, who had been expelled from the structures by the previous executive, have been re-admitted.
The members, who are part of the original Elizabeth Madzimure Bwanya-led Mbare Chimurenga Choir, who were expelled at the instigation of former Political Commissar for the Province, Onismo Gore, were ecstatic following their re-admission into the structures by a disciplinary committee which found them innocent.
The members claim that they were pushed out through the connivance of Tendai Savanhu, Onismo Gore and Ambassador Amos Midzi, who accused them of selling out yet it was all in a bid to propel the Pamela Tsvanhu-led Mbare Chimurenga Choir.
The Acting Disciplinary Committee Chairperson, Shadreck Mashayamombe, said the re-admission of the members is in line with strengthening the party following the sound advice from the First Lady, Dr Grace Mugabe to deal decisively with factionalism.
The revolutionary party is in the processes of reinvigorating itself with a few scalps of senior party officials fingered in factionalism being claimed.
Zanu PF goes for an elective congress starting on the 2nd of December.
