Zanu PF Mashonaland East has described the resignation of former Marondera West MP Retired Brigadier General Ambrose Mutinhiri as a non-event which should not shake the party in the constituency.

Zanu PF politburo member Dr Sydney Sekeramayi told party supporters at an inter-district meeting at Mahusekwa Growth Point that although Mr Mutinhiri has sold out that should not shake the party, urging the members to remain united.

The meeting was meant to inform members on the new developments after Mr Mutinhiri’s resignation and formation of an opposition party National Patriotic Front.

 Provincial chairman Cde Joel Biggie Matiza said the leadership in the area should ensure that resignation of Mr Mutinhiri does not divide the party and advised that those who used to work with the former Mashonaland East Minister of State should know that the party is bigger than individuals.
