ZANU PF’s Mashonaland East provincial executive has suspended party official and UMAA Group of Colleges owner Cleopas Kundiona for failing to avail himself during party programmes.
Kundiona lost the ZANU PF primary elections to Ignatius Mateveke for the Marondera Central constituency which became vacant after the MDC-T recalled Caston Matewu (MDC Alliance).
Despite losing the primary poll to his rival, Kundiona was still expected to help campaign for him and fund his campaign.
In a letter dated 4 March 2022, ZANU PF provincial vice-chairperson Kudzai Majuru said:
You were seen in the constituency moving and campaigning for the MDC candidates and you failed to avail yourself for the party programmes without real cause.
- Kundiona has been suspended from his position as provincial deputy secretary for legal affairs which he landed during the controversial December elections.
- He is not allowed to visit party offices for the purpose of attending and or carrying out any activities for, and on behalf of the party.
- He is prohibited from holding any party position or attending any party meeting until the finalisation of a disciplinary hearing pencilled for March 25, 2022.
