 Here Is Where It Gets Interesting, This Is Why Kasukuwere Parted Ways With Zanu PF

Saviour Kasukuwere was reported to belong to the G40 faction which was believed to be led by Grace Mugabe. He has also been widely quoted speaking against factional tendencies which were being employed some of the party members.

In one of his speeches, he noted that people loyal to Zanu PF should desist from doing things that divide the party and that the suspension of senior party members such as Rugare Gumbo should serve as a warning.

He also maintained that no individual was bigger than the party and that anyone who went against what the party stands for would suffer the same fate as provincial chairs that were booted out whom he said thought that they owned the people.

After the Zanu PF 6th National People’s Conference, Kasukuwere was appointed as the new party commissar replacing the then ousted Webster Shamu. One of the things that Kasukuwere did upon assumption of office was to stop the suspension of party in the provinces and the passing of votes of no confidence or else those that dared defy the party’s directive to stop suspensions would face disciplinary actions.

This was following reports in which it was alleged that people were now passing votes of no confidence to settle scores with their perceived political opponents and rivals. Following the removal of Ray Kaukonde and his executive, an interim executive was put in place but was removed by Kasukuwere following accusations of intense fighting.

Said Cde Undenge while reading the resolutions: “At its meeting on April 21, 2017, the Manicaland PCC passed a resolution that the political commissar, Cde Saviour Kasukuwere, must be relieved of his post because he was undermining the President, Cde Robert Mugabe.
