CHIEF Nhlanhlayamangwe Felix Ndiweni of Ntabazinduna, who last week angered Zanu-PF when he addressed a Press conference in Bulawayo and called for tougher sanctions against Zimbabwe government, says he will continue calling for more sanctions.
The Chief was speaking yesterday after a near-miss confrontation with suspected Zanu-PF youths who wanted to seize his government-issued vehicle.
“With respect to sanctions issue, sanctions were brought on this country because of land. Myself and my fellow traditional leaders will continue to call for sanctions against those elements that engage in corruption and fraud over our land.”
The Chief says his fight with the government is over the Ntabazinduna mountain, where a farm in that area was allocated by government to an indigenous farmer.
The Chief, who yesterday was heckled by a mob of suspected Zanu-PF youths that wanted to seize his government-issued vehicle, says there is no going back on the Ntabazinduna isue.
“We have no intention of engaging in reverse gear. there is no going back on the Ntabazinduna mountain issue,” he said after the attack yesterday afternoon.
Meanwhile, the ruling Zanu-PF party has invited Chief Nhlanhlayamangwe Felix Ndiweni of Ntabazinduna to join politics so that they can tackle him politically.
Zanu-PF further says Chief Ndiweni has had liaisons with secessionist movement Mthwakazi Republic.
“He must just join politics and leave the chieftaincy. He should come into mainstream politics by joining these political parties that he is aligned to or even form his own and we will show him how winning politics is played, he has no chance against Zanu-PF,” Zanu-PF Matabeleland North provincial person Richard Moyo has said.
“He must just join politics and leave the chieftaincy. He should come into mainstream politics by joining these political parties that he is aligned to or even form his own and we will show him how winning politics is played, he has no chance against Zanu-PF,” he said.
“In pursuit of a political agenda, he has chosen to advocate for the suffering of the people instead of working towards their development and unity. We know that initially he was running with secessionist movements like Mthwakazi and later we heard he was endorsing Chamisa despite his loss in the 2018 elections.”
