Recent developments in the National Patriotic Front (NPF) are reflective that Zanu Pf is a party full of snakes masquerading as comrades former higher and tertiary education minister, Professor Jonathan Moyo has claimed.
Professor Moyo alleged that the firing of NPF’s interim President Retired Brigadier General Ambrose Mutinhiri by the breakaway faction of the NPF led by Eunice Sandi Moyo indicated that the party was being manipulated by President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s Junta Pf.
Said Professor Moyo in a tweet.
When were in #ZanuPF before it was killed by the military coup on 15 November 2017 & morphed into the unelectable #JuntaPF, it was not clear if comrades were snakes or snakes were comrades. Now, since 22 May, it’s all very clear that it was both!#HandeyiKwekwe #KwekweHimJuly30
Professor Moyo’s statement follows yesterday’s events where Retired Brigadier General Mutinhiri was fired by the party from the presidency for incompetence.
During a press conference held at the Media Centre in Harare, party spokesperson Jelousy Mawarire announced that the party had resolved to relieve Mutinhiri of his duties for failing to deliver as leader of the party, disrupting coalition talks with ” an alliance partner” and disrupting party meetings by hiring violent thugs.
The allegations of incompetence were confirmed by the NPF Chairperson, Eunice Sandi Moyo, who was also availed as the acting President of the party.
Mawarire told journalists that the decision to fire Mutinhiri was endorsed by the party’s provincial leadership who attended the meeting at Margolis Plaza on Thursday.
“Only 3 out of the 10 provincial chairperson had gone back following the threats and intimidation by Mutinhiri’s cabal which is why you see that we have 7 provincial chairpersons at this press conference,” said Mawarire.
A few hours later, Mutinhiri called for a presser at the same venue where he maintained that he was still party President refuting allegations that he had hired thugs to disrupt the meeting at Margolis Plaza.
“Mawarire and his cabal have just fired themselves from NPF. We are saying congratulations to them (Mawarire and cabal) but we are saying condolences to Nelson Chamisa and the MDC Alliance if they are going to accommodate them,” said Jim Kunaka, NPF’s National Political Commisser.
