ZANU PF Youths Call Party Councillor To Order

23 Aug 2022 at 19:24hrs | Views
ZANU PF youths in Mazowe have called party councillor in Glendale Dominic Chimumba to order after he allegedly dished commercial stands to vendors a move that is being perceived as a vote buying gimmick. 

In a letter seen by the youths requested the party to intervene saying Chimumba's move was putting the name of the party in disrepute.

Chimumba is also Mazowe District Co-ordinating Committee (DCC) vice Chairperson.

"We have noted with concern that flea market stands and Rujeko buffer road stands beneficiaries were already identified and allocated by Councillor Chimumba and Kasere on their own respectively without consultations with the ZANU PF Party in Glendale; we want that move to be stopped with immediate effect. It is our worry and distress as ZANU PF Party because councillors are behaving as if they were chosen as independent councillors but we know that they are Zanu PF. We want the aforementioned allocations reviewed," the letter reads.

" lWe are summoning your good office to suspend the distribution of stands/spaces to anyone without party leaders involvement as some councillors are eyeing top positions and are therefore using these allocations of stands without any benefit to the ZANU PF Party. It therefore follows that meetings are crucial between councilors and the ZANU PF Party prior to any development because these shenanigans earlier on led to shocking results especially to our President because they were marketing their own names not the ZANU PF Party, and we want to avoid that at all costs."

Contacted for comment  Chimumba said he had no comment since he did not know this news reporter.

"I am afraid l have no comment on that issue since l do not know you in person and above all as a party we have structures led by Tafadzwa Musarara as DCC," Chimumba said.
