Zanu-PF replaces Dexter Nduna

ZANU-PF has replaced Dexter Nduna as the party’s Mashonaland West provincial vice chairperson following his suspension by the politburo for misconduct, although he remains a card-carrying member and MP.

The Chegutu West legislator was replaced by former Zanu-PF Mashonaland West secretary for Information and Publicity Abia Mujere following an election that was held during the Provincial Coordinating Committee (PCC) meeting on Saturday.

However, the winner of the election was Bramson Mungofa, who then uncharacteristically decided to relinquish the victory to Mujere. Mungofa said although he won the election, his decision to let Mujere takeover the position was motivated by a desire to give new blood a chance.

In his acceptance speech, Mujere said he would work with the party’s leadership to ensure President Mnangagwa and the party got more than five million votes in the 2023 harmonised elections.

The election ended Nduna’s bid for readmission into the PCC, but he remains a card-carrying member and MP for Chegutu West.

Nduna’s suspension was communicated by the party’s acting spokesperson, Patrick Chinamasa, in October after the Politburo endorsed it.

Nduna allegedly defied the party’s directive for the province to ensure fair primary elections after he imposed a candidate for Ward 2 in Chegutu urban and instigating violence by organising mobs to disturb the smooth running of the election.

Meanwhile, Zanu-PF Mashonaland West provincial chairperson Ziyambi Ziyambi said the move to replace Nduna was aimed at strengthening the party’s structures. ■
