It never rains but pours for former Politburo and Cabinet minister, Webster Shamu, as his determined attempts to make a dramatic comeback keep failing.

Last Thursday, at a ZANU-PF rally at Kent in Norton where Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko had gone to drum up support for ZANU-PF's Norton by-election candidate, Ronnie Chindedza, Shamu was left licking his wounds.

Shamu and his wife's attempts to join in the proceedings in the briefing room where the party's leadership, led by Mphoko, were having a working lunch, hit a snag after they were ordered out.

In shame, they walked back to their car where they had their own packed lunch.

To add to their mounting woes, youths operating the public address system disconnected the microphone as the former minister was about to chant the party slogan after he had sneaked to the podium.

A man famed for his excessive bootlicking during his days in government, Shamu must be feeling the proverbial "cold weather" that mercilessly hits those outside the ruling party.
