We’re all behind VPs says Cde Saviour Kasukuwere

Tichaona Zindoga Political Editor
Zanu-PF’s rank and file fully supports the recently-appointed leadership — including Vice Presidents Cdes Emmerson Mnangagwa and Phelekezela Mphoko — and any attempts to divide the party will fail, national secretary for the commissariat Cde Saviour Kasukuwere has said.

He dismissed as “gutter journalism” reports in the private media claiming a rift in the party and that VP Mnangagwa was under attack from a clique allegedly unhappy with his rise and its failure to land influential posts in the party and Government.

NewsDay yesterday ran a story headlined “Daggers drawn against Mnangagwa” in which it claimed that “a gang of four (G4) comprising Information, Media and Broadcasting Services Minister Professor Jonathan Moyo, Environment, Water and Climate Minister Saviour Kasukuwere, Higher and Tertiary Education Minister Oppah Muchinguri and (President) Mugabe’s nephew, Patrick Zhuwao” had “turned its swords” against VP Mnangagwa for allegedly letting it down by giving its members less influential party and Cabinet positions.

“It is no longer journalism when we try to ascribe feelings of being unhappy even without asking the people involved. It is gutter journalism,” said Cde Kasukuwere in a statement last night.

“We would like to dismiss as baseless and false these innuendos and allegations being peddled by fifth columnists. President Mugabe appointed the Politburo and two deputies and that is the structure that will lead the party in the next five years and they enjoy support from the rank and file. We support each and every decision made by His Excellency including the appointment of two tried and tested cadres, Cdes Mnangagwa and Mphoko,” he said.

He noted that the allegations by paid opponents of the ruling party in the private media, who also worked with a faction allegedly led by deposed Vice President Joice Mujuru, was working in vain to destabilise Zanu-PF.

“We will not be distracted from the core mission to ensure the party policies and Government programmes succeed. The party’s commitment to the people of Zimbabwe is total and those who seek to divide the party leadership have no chance of success in their nefarious attempt to undermine the party’s unity,” he said.

He also called upon Zanu-PF members to be wary of giving voice to divisive elements.

Cde Kasukuwere lumped the latest report of Zanu-PF fractures to recent claims that the party wanted to “recall” around 100 parliamentarians for their alleged links to ousted VP Mujuru.

Government on Tuesday dismissed the speculation, with Minister Moyo saying such claims reflected wishful thinking. Herald
