Ncube told The Zimbabwean this week that the decision to suspend him was Masterminded by the party’s Council of Elders chairperson, James Mulevu, who he accused of having a personal vendetta against him.

“My so-called suspension was never sanctioned by the entire council. Only Mulevu clandestinely wrote the letter. I do not know what I have done which warrant such hatred against me,” said Ncube.

“Our constitution is very clear. The national executive has the powers to suspend members. That purported suspension is both illegal and valid because I did not violate the party’s constitution,” he added.

The former Zipra Veterans Trust chairperson, was suspended from the party last week for allegedly making unilateral decisions in the running of the province. Ncube is also accused of embarking on a divisive restructuring programme that allegedly led to the replacement of some old leaders.

He has denied the charges. Following his suspension, angry supporters, mainly youths, demonstrated at the party’s offices forcing party President Dumiso Dabengwa to intervene.
