ZANU PF Abandons Elections As Youths Become Violent

ZANU PF Abandons Elections As Youths Become Violent

ZANU PF Mashonaland West youth league elections in Chinhoyi degenerated into chaos as party youths traded blows and threatened to kill each on Sunday.

The elections, which had to be abandoned because of the violence, were to select candidates that will represent the province at next week’s crunch youth league conference.

The riotous situation saw ZANU PF Chinhoyi district chairman Job Mavata, locking the door to prevent his rivals from accessing the command centre where election results were being announced.

He threatened to beat the elections supervisor, provincial affairs minister Mary Mliswa-Chikoka, who doubles as Zanu PF provincial chairperson.

Provincial youth league chairman, Tapiwa Masenda was also targeted for victimisation.

By the time the situation turned violent, polls to elect representatives for Chegutu and Kadoma were yet to be conducted.

Masenda confirmed the skirmishes when contacted by for comment. He said:

Yes, there was commotion caused by one or two unruly elements. You would appreciate that even during elections to choose a village head, things can get heated. This was an election just like any other poll where tempers will be running high. Nonetheless, districts, specifically Chegutu and Kadoma, yet to choose their youth representatives will do so during polls to be held tomorrow (Tuesday).

Results of elections that were conducted:

a). Valerie Makonza defeated Chipo Tagwirei and Sthembeni Madzima in elections to choose a female representative.

b). Shepherd Marime was elected unopposed for Hurungwe/Kariba district.

c). Decide Manhanzva won the Zvimba/Makonde polls after defeating Godknows Muzhandamuri and Admire Muronzi, who is brother-in-law to information permanent secretary Nick Mangwana.

Elections to choose Chegutu and Kadoma youth representatives who will attend and cast ballots at the National Youth Conference that kicks off on May 4 are pending.

The polls were initially scheduled for Norton, but were later set for Zanu PF provincial offices in Chinhoyi, a move designed to manage skirmishes that could disrupt the polls again.

In Zanu PF, violence is normal and has been normalised. They even justify the violence as a sign of the party's popularity. There is impunity for political violence & no repurcussions, sanctions or punishment. In Zanu PF you can kill or brutally beat up a member of the opposition & never get arrested, tried or sentenced. In our communities, we live with violent thugs who are protected even by the police. We live with green bombers who were trained to pretend to cut grass in the afternoon while cutting villagers at night.

@Worzell I think your analysis about Chamisa yesterday was so miserable and misleading. I believe Chamisa is likened to a growing foetus waiting for delivery and must be therefore judged at his Political birth. That birth will be his ascension to the Presidency or Prime Minister of the Republic of Zimbabwe, that's when we will begin to judge him accordingly. As far now its soon to judge the CCC structures and the President @Adv Nelson Chamisa.

@The FIEND. My Friend. Chamisa has 22+ years of political experience. He was the National Youth Chairperson in the MDC. He was an MP for more than 15 years and he was Minister of ICT in the GNU. He was once the National Organising Secretary & was imposed as one of three core-vice Presidents in the MDCT. All leaders should be tested & analysed. Blind hero worship is dangerous. A Driver is first tested before being issued with a driver's licence. Otherwise we will all perish if the driver of the national bus is incompetent & unfit to lead. Before we give Chamisa the keys to the Vehicle called Zimbabwe, we should test him to see if he is ready to drive us to prosperity.

At least he's got a very good CV for the Zimbabwe presidency vacancy therefore we will judge him accordingly after or during his tenure as the Zimbabwean President.


*If Zanu is not for Mugabe, Sithole, Nkala, Mujuru or Gumbo, then how can it be yours?*

Anyone who thinks is a Zanu Member, is a proper **** who will never Learn. ****ishness is the Quality to be Unable to Learn, and unfortunately, in Zimbabwe, we have a surplus of that Quality.
Does anyone remember President Mugabe saying a pen cannot override the command of a gun? Does anyone remember Grace Mugabe declaring that she would execute a "Baby Dumping" on Joyce Mujuru? Is anyone old enough to remember Edgar Tekere confessing that Zanu is a club for armed thugs? Does anyone remember that Zanu was formed by Ndabaningi Sithole who later died under Zanu persecution? Does anyone remember Rugare Gumbo claiming that Zimbabweans were supporting Zanu for its vibrant programmes in August 2012?
Does anyone, with a working mind, remember how Mutasa would kill for Zanu? What does it take for a level headed person to see empirical evidence from Margaret Dongo who spent her life fighting for Zanu, but now confesses that Zanu is a mistake for Zimbabwe's progress?
Why would anyone want to be reminded of Enos Nkala, under whose roof Zanu was formed in 1963, and how he died an enemy of Zanu.
Who remembers a proud chap called Ignatius Chombo who used to be sure that Zanu was his Party? What about Webstar Shamhu who invented Mugabe Cremora mantra?
My question goes to a young educated thinker who is still stuck in Zanu. Do you really think you are more important to Zanu than Enos Nkala? Than Ndabaningi Sithole? Than Mugabe? Tekere, Chombo, Gumbo, Mujuru, Dongo, Shamhu, Grace or anyone who has been humiliated by Zanu including Mnangagwa himself?
Why would someone educated beyond grade 4, really fail to see that Zanu-PF has got no friends at all? It has an infinite mass of ****s to keep using, casting and recycling while eroding Zimbabwe resources at gun-point.
Does anyone with a little brain doubt that Mnangagwa and his wife and all their children will end up jailed by a new Zanu leader, maybe Kasukuwere or Mzembi? Is anyone aware that anything is possible in Zanu? Isn't Grace Mugabe more afraid of Zanu than myself today? Has it ever visited anyone's imagination that Mugabe would one day ask Zimbabweans to vote for MDC rather than Zanu?
Which Zanu Leader has ever enjoyed a safe retirement from Zanu without being hunted? Why would Mnangagwa be the first or are we incapable to learn from the past? Show me Sithole accumulated wealth today? What about Enos Nkala? Does anyone think Mugabe will have a single cow to pass to his children in ten years from now? What gain does Zimbabwe, as a country, gain from unlimited Hero-Worshiping? Where is the Cremora and what can we show as a Nation out of it?What do we expect to gain from-PFeee or wearing Rags of Many Colours that our President Weaved For Us? Are we really an educated country?
How can anyone fail to learn that Zanu is far away from being an innovative Party that can bring economic advantage to Zimbabwe, but a bunch of Armed operators who use our Police and Army to accumulate stolen wealth for the leaders?
We only have ourselves to blame if we openly and voluntarily repeat the same mistakes of propping up Zanu even when our soldiers earn less than a garden-boy in South Africa.

Then u hear murakashi busy defending zanu apa munhu wacho is a youth nxa people must wake up and smell the coffee. YELLOW NATION👆👆👆👆 @Tee

Pardon me..... As for now it's too early to judge the CCC structures and it's President @Adv Nelson Chamisa.
