President Emmerson Mnangagwa has announced that Mashonaland West Province is set to get a new minister soon.

This follows the expulsion of Webster Shamu last month.

Mnangagwa told a Zanu PF rally in Chegutu that the province is not neglected as he is working on appointing a new resident minister.

Shamu was fired after his adversaries produced a video recording of him declaring that the ruling party's leader will lose the forthcoming elections.

After the seeing the video, it is said Mnangagwa was left with no choice, but to act against Shamu even though he had not intended to fire anyone before the elections.

"Shamu did not like Mnangagwa and was always telling people he thought were his friends that ED would lose the coming elections because he is incompetent and not a national leader. This news reached ED in audio format," sources were quoted by the media.

The recording surfaced after Mnangagwa's advisor Christopher Mutsvangwa accused the former minister of misleading political commissar Engelbert Rugeje.
