Ministers "Fight" Over ZANU PF Posts


Two government ministers, Mary Mliswa-Chikoka and Kindness Paradza are reportedly fighting after the former imposed her ally on the  Makonde District coordinating committee (DCC) chaired by Kindness Paradza.

ZANU PF is conducting a restructuring exercise and Mary Mliswa-Chikoka reportedly abused her ministerial and party provincial powers to impose Ruth ‘Boko Haram’ Chikukwa, supposedly at the expense of Stuart Yasini whom the DCC had already co-opted.

The move, which is said to be in violation of the Zanu PF constitution, left Paradza seething with anger. He has since written to the DCC declaring Mliswa-Chikoka’s move as null and void.

In the letter, Paradza who is also the Information deputy minister criticised Mliswa-Chikoka for interfering in Makonde DCC business. He wrote:

Please note that the Makonde DCC, at a properly constituted meeting last Saturday, co-opted Cde Stuart Yasini as Secretary for Science and Technology. That decision still stands. I have since written officially to the province notifying them of our collective decision.

I am told there was a meeting yesterday in Chinhoyi between the provincial chairman and district leadership from Chinhoyi constituency, which was not sanctioned by me, as DCC chairman, and which I did not attend because of ZITF (Zimbabwe International Trade Fair) commitments. I am told this meeting nominated Ruth ‘Boko Haram’ Chikukwa to be in the DCC executive in place of Yasini. This is null and void.

Paradza said the meeting called by Mliswa-Chikoka did not have the legal basis to co-opt anyone into the district organ adding that Ruth Chikukwa failed national security vetting, the reason she was disqualified to contest as a councillor in the last (26 March) by-elections.

He reiterated Provincial Executive Committees (PEC) or districts have no authority to co-opt anyone on behalf of the DCC.

Why is Mashonaland West Province a noisy province ? Both Mary Mliswa Chikoka and Kindness Paradza have been involved in these squabbles at one time or the other. Ziyambi Ziyambi used to be one of them before he was promoted to Politbro.

some people are there in the party to destroy the part from within I'm sure all this does not have anything to do with the people tht voted all these people into those positions it has everything to do with self interests which is something tht ends up tarnishing the name of party as well as our Presidents' name . My advice to the president is to deal with such people in a slashing mood so that they go out of the part and form up their private companies where they can persue their self interests not using Zanu pf powers we want Zanu pf our revolutionary part to last for years so tht the next generation will know also abt Zanu pf
