President Mugabe condemns state newspaper

Following the demonstrations against the Zanu Pf political commissar Cde Saviour Kasukuwere in Bindura where about 1000 demonstrators comprised women, Zanu PF youths, war veterans and other parliamentarians, former Minister Nicholas Goche, Kenneth Musanhi, Remigious Matangira, Christopher Chitindi, Kazembe Kazembe and Monica Mavhunga who accused Cde Kasukuwere of fanning factionalism and plotting against President Mugabe, the President yesterday said disciplinary issues are not discussed in the Media as the party has its own mechanisms of dealing with it. Speaking in Harare at State House where he was receiving his belated 93rd birthday presents from Cabinet Ministers President Mugabe said The Herald was acting like the opposition.

“I don’t like that. Not that I support what he may be alleged to have been doing, but there is a method of correcting him.

“We are a dignified party and if we are going to punish someone we will punish even to the extent of dismissing him. Zvekungo zhambatata-zhambatata let’s not do it and if The Herald is to act like the opposition richiri paper here?

Yesterday the State paper had released a story titled Kasukuwere Torments Mudzidzi Wimbo which was claiming that Cde Kasukuwere was not happy after Mudzidzi Wimbo refused to make a false prophecy that he (Cde Kasukuwere) will succeed President Mugabe.

On the same note the Media in Zimbabwe has been viral with stories that celebrated the end of Cde Kasukuwere’s political career.

Many people however did not hide their feelings as party structures from Cde Saviour Kasukuwere home province, Mashonaland Central turned against him and demonstrated.
