Rumour: Parliamentarians plotting a coup

Rumour: Parliamentarians plotting a coup. A certain section of ZANU PF Members of Parliament is plotting to move a motion calling for the removal of the speaker of Parliament Jacob Mudenda accusing him of sabotaging President Emmerson Mnangagwa through delaying the process of implementing critical reforms.

A ZANU PF MP who spoke to us from Mashonaland Central said, “The President spoke very clearly during the State of the Nation address that he was not happy with the slow pace that parliament was implementing critical reforms. As MPs, we feel that the engine is pushing in the wrong direction.

“We can not have a parliamentary leader who is not working in line with the vision 2030 that the President is pursuing. We have therefore taken a decision to move a process to remove the current speaker of parliament and put a vibrant speaker who will steer debate and make sure that necessary reforms are pushed.

“Mudenda is a slow person and hence saw the President bemoaning the slowness in parliament.” Contacted for comment, MDC Chief whip Prosper Mutseyami said, “If ZANU PF wants to do that, they are going achieve it because they have a two-thirds majority in parliament and we are a minority party.”

Asked if they are happy with the reforms in parliament Mutseyami said, “We are not happy with anything that ZANU PF is doing in the country not only in parliament but everywhere.”

ZANU PF Chief Whip Pupurai Togarepi and Spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo were not answering their mobile phone at the time of writing. Mudenda has been accused of being involved in protecting corrupt officials through delaying the publishing of the NSSA report. He is under investigation from a ZANU PF Committee set by the politburo.
