VICE-PRESIDENT Kembo Mohadi has warned that the ruling party has been infiltrated by people who “use money to buy their way into the party” yet they do not know what the party stands for.

Addressing the Zanu-PF Matabeleland South Provincial Co-ordinating Committee (PCC) in Gwanda Town yesterday, VP Mohadi said the infiltration took place after the June 2018 White City Stadium bombing incident in Bulawayo which left several top leaders ‘incapacitated’.

At least 45 people including Mohadi, Defence Minister Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri, then Zanu-PF national commissar Engelbert Rugeje, Vice-President Constantino Chiwenga’s estranged wife, Marry, to name a few, were injured in the explosion, widely believed to have been targeted at President Mnangagwa.

The explosion killed two VVIP security aides.

“When I was injured during the 2018 blast at White City Stadium, people took advantage of my incapacitation to use money to buy their way into the party.

“Now we have people who do not know what Zanu-PF stands for because they were not groomed by the party,” said Mohadi.

His remarks come as the ruling party has resurrected the District Coordinating Committee (DCC) structures which had been shelved in 2017 by Robert Mugabe amid fears at the time that then Vice President Mnangagwa was using them to strategize his way to the top. The DCC elections have come back with lots of infighting and counter-accusations as rivals try to subtract one another from the race.

Mohadi chillingly added that government had already “dealt with” the person who detonated the explosive at the party’s rally at White City Stadium.

“I know people are asking when that person will be arrested. We are not interested in that. He has been dealt with and he will never be able to do that again. We are not going to arrest him. He is not going to do it again,” Mohadi said.

He, however, could not name the culprit or disclose how government had dealt with him, raising speculation that the State might have applied extra-judicial punishment on the suspected hitman. ■
