Mugabe says Zanu PF matters not subject to court processes

HARARE – President Robert Mugabe has told members of his party that Zanu PF’s principles are not subject to court processes, just a few weeks after ousted secretary for administration, Didymus Mutasa, threatened to file a court application to declare the 2014 Zanu PF congress unconstitutional.

According to the state broadcaster, the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation, Mr. Mugabe told members of the party’s supreme decision-making body outside congress, the Politiburo, that Zanu PF members are not expected to settle party matters in court.

These remarks appeared to have been directed at Mutasa, who left the country soon after the Zanu PF congress in December, which left him with serious political scars after he was “dumped” together with then Vice President Joice Mujuru and several others for what some top party officials claimed were attempts to unconstitutionally unseat President Robert Mugabe.

Mutasa wrote a letter to the African Union and the Southern African Development Community informing urging them to intervene following his ouster by a group that was linked to the Justice Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa, who is now one of Zimbabwe’s vice presidents.

He also wrote another documents detailing grievances of Mujuru group members that were displaced from their positions by some party members linked to Mr. Mnangagwa.

Other issues that were discussed in the Wednesday Politburo meeting include, among others, a report of the state of the party, the implementation of the country’s five-year economic blueprint, the Zimbabwe Agenda for Social and Economic Transformation (ZIMASSET), and elevation of President Mugabe to the post of African Union chair.

Meanwhile, youths from various opposition parties say they are not heeding the call by their ZANU PF counterparts to participate in the annual commemorations of President Robert Mugabe’s birthday to be held next week in Victoria Falls because they believe the event is a waste of resources.

ZANU PF Matabeleland North youth chairman Tamuka Nyoni told Studio 7 they are inviting all youths in the country regardless of political affiliation to a clean-up campaign in Victoria falls on the 21st of February to mark the day.

The Renewal Teams and MDC-T youths have distanced themselves from the occasion.

Descent Bajila, secretary-general for the Welshman-Ncube led MDC tells reporter Sithandekile Mhlanga his party will not participate in the celebrations and President Mugabe’s governance does not inspire the youths.
