Following my expulsion from the Ruling Party Zanu PF in November 2017, confirmed by the Extraordinary Congress held in December last year, and subsequently my expulsion from Parliament on the 18th of January 2018, I wish to state that I have accepted the decision of the Party in all instances and will notwithstanding continue to serve the interests of the Party as its registered voter. 

I remain a loyal member of the Party and whilst expulsion is an administrative exercise in pursuit of reasserting discipline in the Party my heart and soul remains embedded in the ideals, principles and ideological construct of Zanu PF, and I will serve its interests in other roles , most of all as a private citizen going forward into the future.

May I take this opportunity to reaffirm my loyalties to the President and First Secretary of Zanu PF, Cde ED Mnangagwa , the Party and Government, and reassure them of my continued support. The struggle ahead of us now is that of economic emancipation and development and in my new found role as a private citizen I will add my hands on the deck to achieve a prosperous life for all Zimbabweans in line with the aspirations of the President.

With regards to Masvingo South Constituency, which I represented in the last 15 years, 10 of which were in the executive branch of government, it is honourable to mention that I represented them on a Zanu PF ticket , and I want to thank constituents members for their unwavering support and loyalty to the party for the last 38 years, and as soon as the party nominates my replacement ahead of the 2018 General elections, I together with them shall support the Zanu PF candidate to electoral victory . This simultaneously signals my break with representative politics and my reentry into corporate life for which I pray for support from the President , the party and government.

I will forever remain indebted to the people of Masvingo South Constituency, the party and Government for the opportunity and honour to serve my country .

God Bless Zimbabwe !

Aluta Continua!
