Eric Knight has been expelled from ZANU PF UK after he showed allegiance to Nelson Chamisa led-party Citizens Coalition for Change.
Eric Knight who is Moira Knight’s father was well known as a presenter on Ezomgido.
His expulsion from the ruling party comes after he posted pictures of himself whilst wearing a yellow suit on Facebook which he captioned:
Advocate General Eric Knight says…I stand in solidarity with Zimbabwe’s citizens.
This is the right direction!
It’s about citizens.
It’s about change.
It’s about the country.
The citizen is you.
Sunday 20 February 2023 I will be there at the Zimbabwe Grounds in Highfield.
But above all, Register To Vote.
Simuka Zimbabwe Simuka!
Phakama Zimbabwe Phakama!
God Bless Zimbabwe!
God Bless the Citizens!
God Bless Africa!
In a statement, ZANU PF said they respect Eric Knight’s democratic choice but he can not continue to be part of their party since he has shifted his allegiance to CCC. Read a letter from the ruling party:
