FORMER Zanu-PF national youth commissar Godfrey Tsenengamu says yesterday’s decision by the ruling party’s Politburo to expel him “does not worry” him and he will not miss being a party member.
At today’s press briefing after the Politburo, Secretary for Administration Obert Mpofu said Tsenengamu has been expelled “for continued intransigence” and indiscipline.
The firebrand politician said he will neither betray his conscience nor principles because the party “made a decision it deemed fit for the betterment of the people’s livelihoods.”
In an interview with the Zimbabwe Voice, Tsenengamu said he will fight corruption without party affiliation.
“I have just been informed that I have been expelled from the party by colleagues who were at the party headquarters and I am not worried about that decision.
“My focus remains clear as before so I will not miss being a member of the party,” said Tsenengamu.
The former leader said he will remain a torch bearer in the fight against corruption, taking leaders to account and making sure that the nation’s resources are evenly distributed to all citizens.
In January, Tsenengamu accused businessmen Kuda Tagwirei, Billy Rautenbach and Tafadzwa Musarara, all believed to be linked to President Emmerson Mnangagwa, of corruption and capturing State institutions.
Tagwirei, Rautenbach and Musarara are not Zanu-PF members.
Recently, the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) also absolved Tagwirei of any wrongdoing.
Tsenengamu stressed that fighting corruption is a “complex task” that he will continue doing through mobilisation of all stakeholders and citizens.
He added: “I accept the decision taken by Zanu-PF. I hope this decision will improve people’s lives, will end corruption and improve the economy. Right now I will fight corruption as a Zimbabwean and make sure that the country’s wealth is not in the hands of the few.”
