Zanu MPs Vow To Sabotage ED’s Re-election Bid – Claims Chamisa
Political drama is unfolding in Zimbabwe as opposition leader Nelson Chamisa claims that MPs from the ruling Zanu PF party are ready to “de-campaign” President Emmerson Mnangagwa in the upcoming elections.
According to Chamisa, support for Mnangagwa within his own party has dwindled, with MPs telling him that they will do a “bhora musango.”
Chamisa alleges that Zanu PF MPs told him that Mnangagwa’s rule has only benefited his family, and that he has been rewarding individuals who are not from the party. Some within Zanu PF are reportedly frustrated with Mnangagwa’s leadership and have accused him of creating parallel party structures.
“His own MPs tell me they will do a ‘bhora musango’ against him,” he revealed.
“They say his rule has only enriched his family. He is rewarding people who are not even from the party. That’s why he created structures like FAZ as he doesn’t trust us,” claimed Chamisa.
These claims come as former Zanu PF commissar, Saviour Kasukuwere, announced his own ambitions to run for the presidency, challenging Mnangagwa. However, his bid was thwarted after the Supreme Court upheld a ruling barring him from contesting.
Chamisa himself is facing a similar setback, as 12 of his Bulawayo candidates were disqualified from the ballot after filing nomination papers past the deadline. Chamisa has accused the ruling party of abusing its power to eliminate competition.
As the political temperature continues to rise ahead of the elections, it remains to be seen how these developments will impact the outcome of the vote.
