Gokwe-Nembudziya member of parliament Justice Wadyajena has laid into Vice President Joice Mujuru, saying she "must heed First Lady Grace Mugabe's call to resign" over alleged corruption and abuse of office charges.
This was after he had been asked about his position on the current factional fights in Zanu PF and the motivation of emblazoning his red BMW sports utility with the Women's League-designate boss' images.
"I support President Robert Mugabe and the First Lady, and only opposed to corrupt officials, including the VP, out to destroy the president's legacy through palace coups," Wadyajena said.
"In fact, l do not make any apologies for the VP to resign, especially in the wake of overwhelming evidence of corruption, abuse of office and plots to unseat… our first secretary, who has sacrificed a lot for Zimbabwe. The Zanu PF leader is a gem the country cannot afford to lose and, therefore, any attempts to eject him were treasonous".
The Harare businessman's salvo comes as political temperatures have risen ahead of the party's December elective congress and Zimbabwe has witnessed a trend in which many high-value vehicles have been "drenched" in Grace Mugabe's images.
