Zanu-PF youths dethrone provincial chairman

Zanu-PF youths have yesterday summarily suspended provincial chairperson Dennis Ndlovu ostensibly because he is a stooge of under fire political commissar Saviour Kasukuwere.

Ndlovu was one of the four Zanu-PF provincial chairpersons who on Monday reportedly attended a meeting in Harare that was called by Kasukuwere.

Ndlovu recently said the province will course summon and reprimand five senior party officials fingered in a plot to destabilise the party's provincial structures.

He said the party cannot be held to ransom by a few senior party officials whose names keep popping up whenever cases of indiscipline erupt in the province.

Ndlovu said the senior members are well known and they face disciplinary action if they continue with their activities.

The Bulawayo provincial chairman, who declined to name the alleged members, said the party has been patient with them but their behaviour cannot continue unchecked.

He said the party has been patient with the unnamed bigwigs who are causing divisions even in the provincial Youth League executive.

Ndlovu said the senior party officials were fingered in the recent rebellion that saw six youth leaders resigning from their posts.

The youths resigned in protest against their chairperson Anna Mokgohloa.

"The youth seem to be in disarray and are also being divided by the same people.

"The other thing leading to the youths being indisciplined is that they don't understand politics.

"They are just children who join the party without proper orientation. So when they come across someone who is willing to give them money they become easily swayed," said Ndlovu.

He said the party would continue to hold seminars to educate youths on how they should conduct themselves in the party.

Ndlovu said employment creation was key for youths and their empowerment would see them being more disciplined.
