THE Zanu PF youth league has recommended the expulsion of three “controversial” youth leaders, Munyaradzi Shoko, Magura Charumbira and Davis Muhambi, on allegations of fanning violence and indiscipline.

Zanu PF youth boss Kudzanai Chipanga yesterday said the resolution was passed over the weekend.

“We made a resolution as the national youth executive and the national assembly. We resolved that they should be fired from the party. Charumbira and Muhambi are promoting violence in Bulawayo and Shoko’s case is about gross social media abuse,” he said.

“He (Shoko) has been warned several times by the youth league leadership, warned even by the President himself and the First Lady too, but he is not showing any signs of remorse despite the fact that his colleagues have repented.

“We are left with no option other than recommend his immediate expulsion from the party. The recommendations came from their provinces, Bulawayo and Manicaland.”

Chipanga said they were on a drive to instil discipline within the youth wing.

Shoko is leader of the Children of Zimbabwe War Veterans’ Association (Cozwa), which, of late, has clashed with other party structures, while Charumbira and Muhambi stand accused of fanning violence.

Shoko gained notoriety after he appeared on social media networks assaulting and insulting both anti-Zanu PF supporters as well as party supporters, but from a different factional camp with him.

This touched a raw nerve within Zanu PF after President Robert Mugabe and the First Lady Grace Mugabe raised concern over people moving around assaulting people with branded vehicles inscribed with Mugabe’s pictures.

Charumbira hogged the limelight in August after his audio recording attacking Vice-President Phelekezela Mphoko ahead of the burial of the late Masvingo Provincial Affairs minister Shuvai Mahofa dominated social media. newsday
