…as Midlands rises against Dube
07 April 2017, MASVINGO – The anti-G40 wave currently dominating Zanu PF politics has reached the province, with party members openly calling for provincial political commissar Jeppy Jaboon and Masvingo Urban legislator Daniel Shumba to be expelled.
At a meeting held at Chiefs Hall on Tuesday, district representatives allegedly aligned to Team Lacoste openly voiced their dislike for Shumba and Jaboon.
The meeting was chaired by provincial secretary for administration Ailes Baloyi flanked by Godhati Dunira and Zvapano Munganasa.
However, the planned street demos national political commissar Saviour Kasukuwere and his alleged lackeys did not materialise due to "orders from above."
Allegations of corruption, sexual harassment and violation of the party's constitution were levelled against Jaboon and Shumba.
"In Chiredzi MPs no longer represent their electorate due to instructions from Kasukuwere, Shumba and Jeppy. They want MPs to always extort money from Tongaat to fund their agenda of removing the President from power," said one party member.
Jaboon was accused of working to destroy the party by unnecessarily suspending councillors in Bikita.
"He is also violating the party's constitution. He should be fired along with his accomplices," said provincial secretary for information Ronald Ndava.
Another youth accused Jaboon and his group of asking female cadres for sexual favours in exchange for positions.
"We now do not know if people are given position on merit or on the grounds of sexual favours. We have lost respect for them so we want them fired," the youth charged.
Elsewhere, Midlands Woman's League provincial secretary for administration Perseverance Zhou attacked Gweru business woman Smelly Dube for funding G40.
"Here in Gweru, Smelly Moyo is funding Kasukuwere's activities to destroy Zanu PF. She must be stopped," Zhou said.politics
