Outspoken Ntabazinduna traditional leader Chief Nhlanhla Ndiweni has been left out of today's meeting between chiefs from Matabeleland North and Vice President Kembo Mohadi.

Mohadi is meeting the chiefs to discuss traditional and cultural approaches to peace building and conflict resolution.

According to a programme of the event, the meeting is meant to discuss "approaches to peace-building and conflict resolution."

Chief Ndiweni, whose blunt comments about the Zanu-PF led government being a deserving target for western sanctions have caused a national frenzy, will not attend the meeting as he was not invited.

Zanu-PF Matabeleland North provincial chairperson and provincial affairs minister Richard Moyo who has also attacked the chief over his remarks is also expected to address the meeting.

Moyo has said the outspoken traditional leader should just join active politics or form his own party and leave the chieftainship to those willing to stick to their roles as traditional leaders.

If he joined active politics, Moyo said, they will take the chief to the cleaners through electoral rout.

According to the event programme, members of the Joint Operations Command (JOC) will also address the traditional leaders.
