Temba Mliswa speaks on ZANU PF factionalism
The factions are reportedly aligned to President Emmerson Mnangagwa and Vice President Constantino Chiwenga.
"Anyone who ever dreams that there are factions in ZANU-PF is a pathetic dreamer." Mliswa said. "ED and Chiwenga are inseparable. To pin any hopes on perceived factions in ZANU-PF is not only retrogressive, it's folly."
So divisive are the divisions that it is reported the army has called for Mnangagwa's ouster during the December conference.
Reports also allege that the army is looking for a capable candidate who will replace President Mnangagwa.
Going forward, a new culture must be established. We cannot continue voting on partisan lines. It must be about competence. For example, look at the MDC,how many lawyers does that party have in Parliament? They should be over 17. Sadly, most of them are mere bench warmers.— Hon. Temba P.
