Sacked Zanu-PF Youth League deputy, Lewis Matutu has vowed to continue fighting corruption despite the ruling party’s decision to suspend him for the next twelve months for indiscipline.
In a tweet hours after the ruling party wielded the axe on him and Godfrey Tsenengamu, Matutu described the name and shame which landed him in hot soup as ‘honourable’.
The suspension follows the duo’s recent media briefing in which they accused Mnangagwa’s close ally and business mogul, Kudakwashe Tagwirei of winning tenders through corrupt means.
At ZANU PF politburo meeting yesterday, Mnangagwa unamused by their conduct described this as ‘misguided and misdirected activism which threatens the party’s unity, cohesion and singleness of purpose’ and went onto strip them of their posts for a year.
“Self-sacrifice is the most honorable and selfless thing you can do in your life. Better to die for something than to live for nothing,” he wrote.
He went onto add that by wiping out corruption the ruling ZANU PF would achieve it’s 2030 goal of Zimbabwe having an upper middle income economy.
“We keep on working. The fight continues. This is a decade of action as young people are must fight to achieve vision 2030 by all means possible.”
In suspending the duo, Zanu-PF Politburo said they will attend a compulsory ideology training for three months at the Herbert Chitepo Ideological College, a Zanu-PF institution.
Meanwhile, they remain ordinary card-carrying member and are barred from contesting for any party position until the suspension is lifted.
