'I want to teach Didymus Mutasa a lesson,' says Mutsvangwa

DAGGERS have been drawn between Zanu-PF secretary for administration Didymus Mutasa and Manicaland Senator Monica Mutsvangwa after the party guru recently said the latter had ceased to be a central committee member following her decision to contest the provincial chairperson's post.

Mutsvangwa last year contested the Manicaland provincial chairmanship and lost to John Mvundura.

A letter signed by Mutasa was on Saturday read out at the party's provincial coordinating committee (PCC) meeting indicating that Mutsvangwa had forfeited her central committee position.

But Mutsvangwa yesterday insisted that she remained a member of the Zanu-PF central committee claiming that Mutasa wanted to spoil her candidacy.

"I didn't resign as alleged and up to now that letter has not come to me. That letter was read out during the meeting (PCC), but it was not handed over to me," she said.

"This letter purporting to dismiss me from the central committee is just a dirty campaigning trick. It has nothing to do with this outgoing central committee, but these are desperate efforts from people who are mortified by my popularity and strong candidacy in the forthcoming central committee elections."

Mutsvangwa added: "They are trying to undermine democracy in the party by cheating and scaring the party electorate to elect a candidate of their choice. This clearly vindicates my earlier position that their earlier win in the provincial elections last November was an outcome of rigging.

"I can assure you I will teach those male chauvinists a lesson they will never forget. It's a matter of record that in the tough 2008 elections they all lost and I won for Zanu-PF. I have been in this political game since the tender age of 15 against racist and colonial Rhodesia. Zanu-PF has no place for gender bigotry."

Mutasa, however, dug in saying: "She resigned from the central committee because she wanted to contest for the provincial chair post. That is why she resigned. Anyone who is an honest member of Zanu-PF knows that when you are a senior member you can't contest for a lower position. She knows it and she resigned on her own."
