Norton legislator (independent), Temba Mliswa has mocked some ZANU PF officials who lost in the party’s recently held provincial elections saying some were motivated by greed.
He also said his sister, Mary Mliswa-Chikoka who is Mashonaland West Provincial Affairs minister, won the provincial chair post because she had a strategy while her opponents did not have one. He added:
As I have said War Vets should refrain from contesting for such positions but should have their own quota same as the youth, women and the disabled. And may we push for two terms.
I’m embarrassed that Muchechetere got 300 votes amounting to 6 cells. That is a branch plus one cell, so effectively he is a branch chairperson. Why would he embarrass himself like that? He was commander in the struggle, why would he still want to Chair a Province? Very sad.
It’s like myself, I was Chairperson for 3 Committees. Why would I want to chair a subcommittee now? Why would a Chief seek to be a village head? Asi kutsvaga mari?
He also said the ruling ZANU PF has had difficulties because it expelled members who were of much vitality including himself and Killer Zivhu. He said:
Revolutionary parties have suffered because they have expelled people with value. You create monsters. @ANCParliament created Julius Malema @ZANUPF_Official created Temba Mliswa, @killerzivhu1.
He urged the ruling party to bring to book all its members who were violent during the elections.
ZANU PF has over the years expelled members as factionalism intensified.
