Former television presenter, Eric Knight got himself in trouble with the ruling Zanu PF party after he posted pictures of himself on social media garbed in an immaculate yellow suit.

Knight, who made a name for himself as a presenter on Ztv’s Ezomgido, was expelled from the party for his actions. Zanu PF UK said it was expelling Moira Knight’s yellow-suited father for showing allegiance to the Nelson Chamisa-led Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) party.

This was after the former broadcaster had captioned his Facebook post:

Sunday 20 February 2023 I will be there at the Zimbabwe Grounds in Highfield. But above all, Register To Vote. Simuka Zimbabwe Simuka! Phakama Zimbabwe Phakama! God Bless Zimbabwe 🇿🇼! God Bless the Citizens! God Bless Africa!
