The saga involving urban land given to ruling party youths has taken another twist sucking in Professor Jonathan Moyo and former MDC-N secretary generals Priscilla Misihairambwi who allegedly got 70 hectares and 50 hectares respectively.
The scandal came to light after President Mugabe accused Local government Minister Saviour Kasukwere of selling the land meant for the youths to Harare Prophet Walter Magaya. Kasukuwere denies that the land was sold and his story has been supported by Youth league boss Kudzai Chipanga.
However a rival faction within the ruling party supported by the opposition parties and civic groups are calling for Kasukuwere’s head. A demonstration scheduled for tomorrow to protests against Kasukuwere’s alleged corruption has been called off and rescheduled. However some youths within the ruling party have vowed to defend the minister.
The matter is now trending on social media network,Twitter after Gokwe Nembudziya MP Justice Wadyajena posted a list of beneficiaries of the land allegedly that the list had originated from a social media group handled by Minister of Youth and Indigenisation Patrick Zhuwao. Professor Jonathan Moyo and Priscilla Misihairembwe were both unavailable for comment.
