BIKITA – Zanu PF has summarily dismissed its Bikita West ward 10 councillor, Sign Mukanganwi for allegedly harbouring Zimbabwe People First (ZimPF) sympathies and attending the opposition party's rallies.
Acting Zanu PF Masvingo provincial chairperson, Amasa Nhenjana told TellZim News the ruling party had enough evidence to show that Mukanganwi had shifted his loyalties from Zanu PF to ZimPF.
"We were doing slogans together with Mukanganwi at the rally which was addressed by VP Mnangagwa last week. We were, however, surprised to hear people saying Mukanganwi attended People First rallies thereafter.
"We cannot let that happen and he ceases to be our child with immediate effect. We can't let people with double standards take leadership posts. We did our investigations and we have enough evidence to dismiss him," said Nhenjana.
Allegations against Mukanganwi are also that he has been discouraging people from attending Zanu PF rallies.
Although no immediate comment from Mukanganwi could be obtained, he was said to be have got wind of his dismissal and did not show up at a rally today (January 12) organised in his constituency to drum up support for Zanu PF Bikita West parliamentary by-election candidate, Beauty Chabaya.
Last year, Zanu PF fired Masvingo Rural District Council (RDC) ward 12 councillor, Rosewetta Madzivire for defecting to People First.news
