The Sikhanyiso Ndlovu Wikileaks cables


Sikhanyiso Ndlovu was a popular educationist running his own Zimbabwe Distance Education Colleges until he decided to go into politics as the Member of Parliament for Mpopoma. But his career was short-lived because he lost his seat in 2000 to little known Milton Gwetu of the Movement for Democratic Change. The people of Mpopoma loved him but they told him he had to leave ZANU-PF if he wanted them to vote for him. He couldn’t. From then on he survived at the mercy of President Robert Mugabe. He did that for the next eight years until he was fired with most of the other losers in January 2009. There were 18 cables on him and here they are:

18-Ndlovu axed
