Zanu-PF official challenges suspension

Zanu-PF official challenges suspension
Published: 23 October 2018 (44 Views)
FORMER Zanu-PF Manicaland provincial vice-chairperson Joseph Mujati has appealed his suspension from the ruling party alleging that his successor Dorothy Mabika, who chaired the disciplinary, hearing was biased.

Mabika is the current Zanu-PF provincial vice-chairperson.

Mujati was recently barred from holding any party position for one year for allegedly labelling the provincial party leadership incompetent.

In a letter dated October 8, 2018 copied to national chairperson, Oppah Muchinguri, national secretary for the commissariat Engelbert Rugeje and national secretary for legal affairs Munyaradzi Paul Mangwana, Mujati said during the hearing of his matter he requested Mabika to recuse herself from the case as she was heavily compromised.

Mujati is requesting the national disciplinary committee to set aside the suspension.

"As provided for under Article 10 section 83 (5) of the party constitution, I wish to register an appeal against the decision of the Manicaland disciplinary committee on September 19, 2018 which resolved to suspend me from holding any party position for a period of one year," the letter read.

"From the onset, kindly allow me to mention that on the day of the hearing I requested that comrade Dorothy Mabika, the provincial vice-chairperson, recuse herself from presiding over the hearing of the cases."

Mujati said he believed Mabika could not be trusted to make an impartial and fair decision.

He was suspended for openly telling provincial executive committee members that they did not campaign enough for President Emmerson Mnangagwa and claiming that the Mike Madiro provincial leadership was incompetent.

"Yes, I am appealing to national disciplinary committee [against] my suspension from the party," Mujati said yesterday.

Despite Zanu-PF winning 19 seats out of 26 in Manicaland in the harmonised elections, Mnangagwa lost to MDC Alliance presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa in total votes for the province.
