Zanu PF looks like a party about to split as big wigs plot and counter-plot against friends and foes in the beleaguered party.

This is all about who will take over from President Robert Mugabe who is not expected to be in politics for too long.

No one ever imagined that party heavyweight, Saviour Kasukuwere, would have his name involved in this week’s protests  that were staged against Sandi Moyo and Sarah Mahoka.,

BUT Zanu-PF national political commissar  Saviour Kasukuwere and his sidekick Harare provincial commissar Shadreck Mashayamombe have been accused of attempting to sabotage last Wednesday’s protests by members of the Women’s League.

Members of the Women’s League held demonstrations across the country’s 10 provinces demanding the ouster of the organ’s national deputy chairperson Eunice Sandi Moyo and treasurer Sarah Mahoka.

The two national executive members are accused of undermining the authority of First Lady Dr Grace Mugabe, denigrating Presidential appointments, corruption and creating parallel structures in the Women’s League.

However, information gathered by state media, which was corroborated by various Women’s League leaders, showed that the pair spent the better part of Tuesday night making frantic efforts to block the protests.

Kasukuwere and Mashayamombe were reportedly working with other bigwigs in various provinces.

The two, who are aligned to  a new faction that has  Sandi-Moyo and Mahoka; and all are fighting to block the ascendancy of Grace Mugabe to party vice President.

Asked to comment,  Kasukuwere was evasive.

“Are you crazy? Why would I block any protests?,” he asked before hanging up.

Meanwhile, Eunice Sandi Moyo, on Wednesday decided to take the war to Grace via social media.

She opened a twitter account just hours after countrywide demonstrations by the organ’s members calling for her ouster on a litany of allegations.

Minister Sandi Moyo confirmed at a Press conference in Bulawayo yesterday that she owned the twitter account under the handle “@sandimoyo”.

In response to her defiance, Grace Mugabe’s supporters, women and party youths, will be bused from across the country to demonstrate again Moyo in Bulawayo today.

They will then hand over petitions from various provinces to Grace Mugabe at Zanu-PF Headquarters on Monday.

She is then expected to recommend the suspension of her former allies.
