Exiled former ZANU PF national political commissar, Saviour Kasukuwere, has said there is a need to steer the ruling ZANU PF back on course.
He alleges that the party’s current leadership has failed to solve the chaos that prevails in ZANU PF.
Kasukuwere speaks when he is being accused of sponsoring a ZANU PF member, Sybeth Musengezi, in challenging President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s ascendancy to the party’s presidency following the ouster of the late leader Robert Mugabe in November 2017.
But Kasukuwere said accusations against him are scapegoats by a leadership that has failed its mandate. He said:
The accusations against me are hallucinations from ignorant characters that have no interest of the party at heart.
Arguing about an obvious absurdity is indicative of serious lack of emotional intelligence on the part of those who should lead the movement.
Scapegoats are not the solution, but rather the solution is tackling the core political question of the day. Political maturity and wisdom is urgently required to steer the party back on course.
Kasukuwere who was fired from the party in 2017 together with other party members who were alleged to be members of the vanquished G-40 faction, has indicated that he wants to contest the 2023 presidential election.
He previously pushed the #TysonWabantu campaign which flopped after close associates including Professor Jonathan Moyo distanced themselves from it.
There are reports that suggest that G-40 remnants in ZANU PF are preparing for his return.
