Lacoste Plans To Take Down Kasukuwere Unearthed

Zanu PF is on the brink of chaos as youths aligned to Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s Team Lacoste faction are planning to seize an opportunity to take down party political commissar Saviour Kasukuwere whom they accuse of grabbing stands allocated to them.
 
Insiders revealed to a local publication that there was a plot youths to demonstrate in Chitungwiza and Harare tomorrow against Kasukuwere the Local Government minister following remarks by President Robert Mugabe that he had sold the stands to Prophetic Healing and Deliverance (PHD) founder Walter Magaya.

The youths plan to demonstrate under the banner of the little known Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Citizens Taskforce (ZACCT) where they say they want to push for Kasukuwere’s arrest.

But while confirming the development, Zanu PF Harare Provincial chairperson for the youth league, Edson Takataka, yesterday insisted that either the people involved were not Zanu PF or they were members being used by elements bent on destabilising the party.

“Those that are planning demonstrations are thugs hired by people who initially thought that the stands issue was a hoax but now realise that it is actually materialising,” Takataka said.

He added that bona fide Zanu PF youths would not be tempted to demonstrate against senior party officials supposing that there was a genuine problem.

But sources said the developments were part of the Zanu PF succession wars playing out with Mnangagwa’s allies keen on pinning down Kasukuwere after Zanu PF youth league secretary Kudzanai Chipanga reportedly leapt to his defence at the party’s politburo meeting last week.

“These people (Mnangagwa’s allies) had hoped that Mugabe would savage Kasukuwere after he confronted him just before the politburo meeting last week but they were left with egg on the face after Chipanga gave a report exonerating Kasukuwere,” said a source in Zanu PF.

Chipanga reportedly told Mugabe that all was well with the youths’ stands and that the youths were grateful for the president’s efforts as they had not benefited during the land reform programme.

The threats against Kasukuwere also follow  Saturday’s skirmishes  that saw irate youths assault the Zanu PF  national youth league commissar, Innocent Hamandishe, in Chitungwiza, accusing him of trying to cover up for Kasukuwere over the stands in Chishawasha B on Harare’s outskirts.

But youths aligned to Mnangagwa insisted yesterday that the protest against Kasukuwere would go ahead.
