It appears Zanu PF’s fourth most powerful official, national chair Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri reserves her most toxic sentiments for Mashonaland West Province.
When the deadly Covid-19 pandemic was still in its infancy and ravaging the Western world, she stepped up onto the podium at an event in Chinhoyi, the province’s capital, and spewed the diatribe.
She claimed the pandemic was God’s way of punishing the West for imposing sanctions of Zimbabwe.
“This coronavirus that has come are sanctions against the countries that have imposed sanctions on us.
God is punishing them now and they are staying indoors now while their economy is screaming like what they did to ours by imposing sanctions on us,” she unwittingly said.
And On Saturday, she was back in the province and back to her invective worst.
She ominously warned party members fomenting factionalism and those splashing cash to buy positions that their days in the revolutionary party were numbered because the ruling party has a tendency to devour its very own children.
Speaking at Chikangwe Stadium in Karoi Saturday during a Zanu PF Presidential Rally to mobilise support for Karoi Urban Ward 4 councillor candidate, Solomon Chikwerengwe, the minister urged aspiring councillors and parliamentarians to humble themselves and unite the party.
Muchinguri-Kashiri said winners must embrace those who lost in the recently held provincial executive elections and primaries held to choose candidates to represent the party in the March 26 by-elections. —–New Zimbabwe
