Mujuru says factionalism hinders development

Vice-President Joice Mujuru today denounced factionalism within the Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front because it hindered development. “When there are squabbles within the party either between our Members of Parliament and or within the Presidium, there will be no development. Isu vakuru hatifanirwe kudhonzerana; ngatifambire pamwe. We should be united and protect the party’s image. We should focus on implementing developmental projects as well as our economic blueprint. If we quarrel as MPs, it means even issues like the distribution of farming inputs would be delayed because there would be no harmony in the manner under which these inputs should be distributed to the people. We want you to even write anonymous letters informing your party leaders on people who are up to divisions. We don’t want spies who are out to hamper development. We want meetings for development and they should include traditional leaders. We want to talk of development,” she told people at Mataga in Mberengwa in the Midlands. The Midlands, home of Mujuru’s main rival Emmerson Mnangagwa, was rocked by factionalism last year.
