CHIREDZI – President Mugabe had to bear with many unpalatable testimonies during his closed door no holds barred Saturday meeting with Zanu PF legislators in Chiredzi including stories told of Shuvai Mahofa’s sexual affairs.
The majority of Zanu PF MPs present at the meeting meant to deal with factionalism in the province bayed for Mahofa’s blood and documentary evidence to incriminate her on corruption, bad governance and loyalty to Lacoste, a faction said to be aligned to Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa was produced before President Mugabe.
Some of the evidence is said to have left Mugabe in a state of shock and sources said it may require a miracle for Mahofa to escape sacking from the office of the Minister of State for Masvingo.
The peak of the allegations was when Chiredzi West MP Darlington Chiwa alleged that Mahofa squandered $100 000 from the Zimbabwe Milling Industry Workers’ Union together with her alleged boyfriend, Admore Hwarare.
Chiwa said the two lovers are responsible for the collapse of that Union after siphoning money from the organisation.
Hwarare is a former secretary general of ZISMIWU. Mahofa professed ignorance over the matter and said that she did not know Hwarare.
However, Hwarare told The Mirror that Mahofa was his small house but the affair existed long before ZISMIWU was formed.
“I heard that the matter was discussed during the meeting but I don’t know why. The truth is that Mai Mahofa was my small house long back when I was still serving in the Army and this was before the formation of ZISIMUWI,” said Hwarare in a Whatsapp message to The Mirror.
However, it emerged in the meeting that Zanu PF indeed got $100 000 from the Tongaat Hulett workers’ union but the money was allegedly squandered by individuals.
Evidence was produced that there was an acknowledgement of receipt of the money signed by former provincial chairman, Lovemore Matuke.
Sources who attended the meeting said Mugabe said in his opening remarks that legislators who were raising complaints against Mahofa and his Psychomotor relative Josiah Hungwe should repeat them in their (Hungwe and Mahofa’s) presence.
Minister of Tourism Walter Muzembi opened the floodgates by claiming that he was an adviser to President Mugabe and therefore he is the one who approached the President for such a meeting.
Mzembi accused Mahofa and Hungwe of working to destroy the party in the province.
Gutu MPs Tongai Muzenda and Dr Paul Chimedza told Mugabe that their efforts to develop their constituencies were being thwarted by Mahofa using her Ministerial powers. Chimedza said he was one of the few MPs from Masvingo who along with President Mugabe was on the sanctions list.
He also said Mahofa stopped the building of clinics in his constituency after he sourced funds for the project.
Women`s League chairperson, Veronica Makonese accused Mahofa of stealing money meant for Grace Mugabe birthday which was donated by various organisations and individuals in Chiredzi.
A breakdown of how the money was done in the meeting and Mahofa could not account for $2 000 which was not deposited in the party account. Chiredzi East MP Denford Masiya accused Mahofa of ensuring that the late Henry Pote, a stalwart of the liberation struggle was not recommended for national hero status hence he was not buried at the National Shrine.
