Rejected Chinamasa fumes

FORMER Finance minister Patrick Chinamasa, fearing being relegated to an ordinary party member, has pleaded for the allocation of more central committee seats to Manicaland after he was rejected by his Makoni district.

Chinamasa was rejected by his own district at a recent Makoni inter-district meeting, with party members saying he should be contested in the upcoming central committee elections.

Mnangagwa has denounced the imposition of candidates and attempts by bigwigs to avoid elections, saying only he and his deputies Constantino Chiwenga and Kembo Mohadi and Zanu PF national chairperson Oppah Muchinguri would not be contested.

In a letter dated September 30 addressed to the Zanu PF political commissar Mike Bimha, Chinamasa protested why Makoni was allocated few central committee seats.

“Further to the appeal made to the Makoni District Coordination chairman (DCC) Albert Nyakuedzwa dated 27 September 2022, concerning the above subject matter, allow me to submit copy of Zanu PF Manicaland province analysis showing distribution of party districts, constituency by constituency and administrative district by administrative district,” Chinamasa wrote.

“The analysis reveals that Makoni district, which has hundred and twelve districts and five constituencies has been allocated two central committee posts whereas Nyanga has two constituencies and thirty two party districts has been allocated four central committee districts.

“Clearly the allocation is irrational and defies logic. I add my voice to the appeal by Nyakuedzwa for rectification of the anomaly.”

The election dates have not been announced.

Zanu PF spokesperson Christopher Mutsvangwa yesterday directed all questions to Bimha.

Bimha could not be reached for comment.

    Perhaps after all these years the moment has arrived. To call time on these people? “The Rapers and the Murderers, the Breakers and the Takers?” I mean it has all gone on for over 42 years now? These Rapers, Killers, Takers and Breakers now want sanctions lifted because they are getting hungry/ Just look at how thin the Speaker of he House is looking – he looks very hungry?

    Patrick Chinamasa deserves all the rejection that he has now got from his home area. Now let him go and earn a honest living like all the rest of us are doing. But perhaps his amazing Grace might throw him a few coins as she has plenty that she stole from her liberated farms.

    Patrick Chinamasa inability to accept rejection from the people from his home area is a typical reaction of ZANUPF. That is the reason ZANUPF rig every general election the country has had since 1980. They are all immature. Patrick Chinamasa people don’t like you, accept it and get over it. You and ZANUPF get rejected at every election. Its a fact.
