MDC-T MP surprised Zhuwao was not expelled from Parliament


Harare Central Member of Parliament Murisi Zwizwai was surprised on Tuesday that former president Robert Mugabe’s nephew Patrick Zhuwao was not on the list of former Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front legislators who were expelled from Parliament.

“Are you sure Zhuwao’s name is not there?” the MDC-T legislator asked after the list was read out.

Five legislators -Ignatius Chombo, Jonathan Moyo, Saviour Kasukuwere, Kudzanai Chipanga and Mandiitawepi Chimene- were expelled.

The five-said to the kingpins of the G40 faction of ZANU-PF that was fighting to replace then Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa with then first lady Grace Mugabe- were among 20 members of ZANU-PF who were expelled from the party on 19 November.

Zhuwao was said to be one of the kingpins although he denied being a member of G40.

Other legislators who were spared from being expelled from Parliament but were expelled from the party were: Walter Mzembi, Anasthancia Ndlovu, Makhosini Hlongwane, Samuel Undenge, Sarah Mahoka and Eunice Sandi Moyo.

Zhuwao, Mzembi, Undenge, Hlongwane and Sandi Moyo were ministers in Mugabe’s government.
