MDC tribalists' plans exposed

14 Jul 2019 at 22:40hrs | Views
It has come to our attention that the recently elected MDC-A Bulawayo leadership which is predominantly Shona, and stand accused of bribing their way up on tribal grounds is fully behind Kambarami in his quest to remove all Ndebele leadership at council chambers.

We are reliable informed the aborted meeting yesterday was meant to uphold the decision to suspend the Town Clerk and move a vote of no confidence on Mayor Mguni. According to reliable sources within the MDC the plan is to replace Mayor Mguni with Kambarami and Dube with Sikhangele Zhou.

Clearly this has nothing to do with corruption but tribalism. MDC-A Vice-president Professor Welshman Ncube's efforts to intervene on the Bulawayo issue proved to be fruitless as the Shona councillors and leadership have a full backing of Nelson Chamisa and money.

We were also informed that Kambarami recently bought an expensive car that is currently held by zimra over a duty dispute, this is despite the fact that he has no reliable source of income that matches his lifestyle, the issue is in court.

There has been a spirited effort by Kambarami brigade and their partisan journalists to make yesterday's demo an irresponsible action by the so called Mthwakazi hooligans yet in reality that was a united and collective effort by Bulawayo residents to save our city. MRP, ZAPU, IBHETSHU, CIVIC SOCIETY representatives all came together and said enough is enough.

The struggle continues, hands off Bulawayo.
