Kasukuwere starts tour to restore order in ZANU-PF tomorrow


Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front national commissar Saviour Kasukuwere starts his nation-wide tour to restore order within the party provinces tomorrow. There was a nation-wide purge of members believed to belong to former Vice-President Joice Mujuru’s faction in the run-up to the congress last year. Although the party ordered a ceasefire after the congress, some provinces have continued to suspend members. Kasukuwere has nullified the suspensions in Matebeleland North, for example, but there continues to be some resistance, especially from war veterans who insist that the clean-up exercise must continue. “Once we have indicated our position, we expect structures of the party to respect them as announced. Those who try to resist will do so at their own cost because that amounts to indiscipline and they will be dealt with accordingly,” Kasukuwere warned. The tour will show whether the new administration is now in control as there are wide-spread reports of continued divisions. Kasukuwere has rubbished these as the work of gutter journalists who support Mujuru. The purge, which saw at least 15 ministers and Mujuru being kicked out of government, has left a lot of disgruntled people leading to speculation that Mujuru and her allies might form a rival party and form an alliance with the opposition. History, however, shows that for most people kicked out of ZANU-PF, there is no life outside the party.
