NewZimbabwe.com is reliably informed that daggers are out for provincial chairperson Mary Mliswa-Chikoka, who is being accused of failing to mobilise the people.
Mnangagwa was visiting the RioZim-owned Cam and Motor Mine in Kadoma to commission a US$17 million Biological Oxidation (BIOX) plant, apparently equipped with the latest technology that ensures better processing of high sulphur refractory gold ore.
The plan however crumbled spectacularly after villagers in the vast province refused to turn up and board the busses, party sources said.
Sources indicated that one of the 75-seater coaches ferried only three people to the venue.
A schedule leaked to NewZimbabwe.com at the weekend shows that, Norton, Chegutu Urban, Mhangura, Kadoma and Kariba districts were allocated two 75-seater buses each while Chegutu Halfway, Karoi, Chirundu, Makonde, Chinhoyi, Banket, Murombedzi, Zvipani and Ngezi had one bus each.
However, the bus from Norton transported only three passengers as Zanu PF supporters snubbed the invitation, while the bus from Chinhoyi had less than 10 passengers.
Sources within the party said last week’s embarrassing episode had rattled senior members, who are demanding answers from Mliswa-Chikoka, questioning her mobilisation capabilities.
