Zanu PF has expelled musician-cum-politician, Energy Mutodi from the party, while Cde Mabel Chinomona has been relieved of her position as the Women’s League National Commissar.
Speaking at the party headquarters after a Politburo meeting in Harare today, Zanu PF Secretary for Information and Publicity, Ambassador Simon Khaya Moyo, did not give the reasons for Mutodi’s expulsion and Cde Chinomona’s relief of her duties.
However, the controversial Mutodi has of late been accused of causing confusion in the party, and was recently arrested for sensationally claiming that Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa was poisoned by Politburo members, Dr Sydney Sekeramayi and Dr David Parirenyatwa.
Also speaking after Politburo meeting, Ambassador Khaya Moyo confirmed the Politburo’s decision to lift suspensions on Cde Enock Porusingazi, Cde Jebby Jaboon and Chairman of Mashonaland Central Cde Dickson Mafios, Mashonaland Central Provincial Secretary for Administration Cde Wonder Mashange, Cdes Goodwills Masimirembwa, Cde Molly Mpofu, Cde Angeline Masuku and Cde Petronela Kagonye.
Cde Khaya Moyo said the lifting of suspensions was done as the party’s constitution was not followed when the suspensions were effected, adding that those who have bounced back are now ordinary members of the party.
He also said the Politburo recommended that a workshop be held to educate party cadres on the constitution.
