Politburo reverses youth suspensions

ZANU PF Mashonaland West provincial vice-chairman Ziyambi Ziyambi said he will not write a letter to lift the recent suspension of Youth leader Vengai Musengi as the party’s Politburo had already made a ruling on the matter.


Ziyambi, who is the chairperson of the provincial disciplinary committee, said Musengi was automatically reinstated through a Politburo resolution reversing the suspensions of all youths countrywide who were recently kicked out of office as part of the factional fights in Zanu PF.

Musengi was suspended by the Mashonaland West Provincial Executive Committee on various allegations including misappropriation of party funds.

He was also accused of lying to Mugabe that the provincial executive was opposed to the elevation of First Lady, Grace Mugabe as the new Women’s League boss.

But President Robert Mugabe addressing party supporters in Kariba on Thursday said after deliberating on the issue during the Politburo meeting, it was resolved to reverse all suspensions.

Ziyambi said writing again to the previously suspended members was not necessary and would be tantamount to undermining the Politburo’s decision.

“I’m not a fool. I’m a lawyer and I will not write anything. The Politburo’s decision was loud and clear that all suspensions have been reversed so it’s a closed chapter,” he said.

“Whoever feels that the youth leader has a case to answer must write to the Party National Chairman like what the President advised.”

But Zanu PF Mashonaland West chairman, Temba Mliswa last night said upon receiving official communication from Khaya-Moyo, the provincial executive would act accordingly.

President Mugabe said if the province is convinced that there were some youths who really needed to be disciplined, it should write to the National Chairman, Simon Khaya Moyo who would sit with his committee to see if the suspended youths had a case to answer.
