The Zanu PF Politburo has expelled former Vice President Joice Mujuru from the party for several allegations bordering around indiscipline and dishonesty.
The Politburo meeting, which ended this evening at the Zanu PF headquarters in Harare, resolved to expel Dr Mujuru and to uphold the votes of no confidence handed to some party members prior to last year’s congress.
10 allegations were raised against the former Vice President, among them plotting to unconstitutionally unseat President Robert Mugabe and orchestrating the 2008 ‘Bhora Musango Campaign,’ to the detriment of the party.
The Politburo also accused Dr Mujuru of fanning factionalism in the party by abusing her office to create competing centres of power, behaviour that was described as unbecoming for a Vice President and Second Secretary of the party.
She is also accused of collaborating and colluding with the enemy and providing leadership to the regime change agenda.
Dr Mujuru, who was fired from government last year, will now follow on the doldrums of politics other party members, among them Didymus Mutasa, Rugare Gumbo, Jabulani Sibanda and Themba Mliswa, who have since been expelled from Zanu PF.
In another development, the Politburo resolved to uphold the votes of no confidence passed against some senior members of the party in 2014 and banned those affected from holding senior positions for a period of two years.
Relating to the primary elections in Headlands, the party has directed that only the five shortlisted candidates: Tinaye Chigudu, Christopher Chingosho, Chiripamberi Sheilah, Mahere Nyagumbo and Elizabeth Mukungatu should contest.ZimEye
