CHIVI – Chivi Rural District Council chairperson and Zanu PF Prvincial Treasurer, Killer Zivhu (pictured) last Saturday announced his intention to take Zanu PF's top post as provincial chairperson.
He was speaking at a ceremony to hand over goods he and First Lady Grace Mugabe donated to schools in the district.
The Zanu PF chairmanship post is currently held by Amasa Nenjana on an acting basis.
Zivhu pleaded with psychomotor minister; Josaya Hungwe to advise him accordingly if he is now ripe for the top post.
"Chef, I have heard that there is a post that has arisen in the party and I would like you to advise me accordingly if I am fit for the post. It's you who got me to be a mature politician and I think your decision matters. I feel am ready to be Zanu PF provincial chairperson.
"I think that post needs real man so that the province moves forward. I feel that I am ready but I repeat, it is you my elder who will decide whether am ripe or not," Zivhu said.
A cautious Hungwe, however, could not directly respond to Zivhu's appeal but showered him with praises, an act that many are likely to see as a veiled endorsement.
"After seeing Zivhu's great commitment, I took him to the First Lady, Grace Mugabe who was also impressed by his works. Many question why I protect him most of the times but he is one character who believes in achieving given goals. That is one of the qualities that lack in most of us. He has even made the ZimAsset more practical," Hungwe said.
Before Nenjana, Zanu PF has had two chairpersons in a short time; Paradzai Chakona and Ezra Chadzamira who were both unceremoniously removed on allegations of belonging to a faction among a litany of other allegations.news
