ZANU-PF Bu­l­awayo province has passed a vote of no con­fi­dence on its sec­re­tary for ad­min­is­tra­tion Cde Naci­sio Makhu­lumo on a raft of al­le­ga­tions in­volv­ing among other is­sues, fail­ure to dis­charge duty.

The vote of no con­fi­dence was passed on Cde Makhu­lumo dur­ing an emer­gency Pro­vin­cial Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee at the Zanu-PF Davies Hall pro­vin­cial of­fices on Tues­day.

Sources who at­tended the meet­ing said the province wrote to Cde Makhu­lumo and the rel­e­vant party struc­tures no­ti­fy­ing them of the de­vel­op­ment on Wed­nes­day.

Zanu-PF pro­vin­cial chair­per­son Cde Den­nis Ndlovu yes­ter­day said it was too early to com­ment on the mat­ter as it was yet to be com­mu­ni­cated to other or­gans of the party.

“I don’t think we have a com­ment now as we are still to com­mu­ni­cate with other struc­tures of the party on what we have done. It’s still a process and we will com­ment when the process is com­plete,” he said.

How­ever, it has been es­tab­lished that part of the al­le­ga­tions lev­elled against Cde Makhu­lumo were cen­tred on a cir­cu­lar re­ceived from the Zanu-PF head­quar­ters giv­ing guide­lines for a vote of no con­fi­dence.

“A meet­ing of the PEC was held on Tues­day where a num­ber of al­le­ga­tions in­clud­ing dere­lic­tion of duty were raised against Cde Makhu­lumo lead­ing to a res­o­lu­tion to pass a vote of no con­fi­dence against him,” said a party of­fi­cial.

Con­tacted, Cde Makhu­lumo dis­missed the vote of no con­fi­dence move as a nul­lity.

“That’s all hog­wash, I will not be ac­cused of dere­lic­tion of duty, and I want them to show me who can speak bet­ter English than me in­clud­ing the chair­man. If he can’t read, he must go back to school. They claim I hid a party cir­cu­lar from the chair­man which is not true,” said Cde Makhu­lumo.

“The cir­cu­lar was re­ceived on 20 Septem­ber and I acted on it, put it in a clip board and left it in the of­fice where all party doc­u­ments are kept. When we had a meet­ing on 26 Septem­ber I found the chair­man in pos­ses­sion of that very clip board.”

Cde Makhu­lumo said he was be­ing tar­geted by some mem­bers be­cause of his work ethic and prin­ci­ples.

“This is an at­tempt to side­line me, our role is to build the party with hon­esty and not claim that the province has 112 districts when that is ac­tu­ally not true. I was not at that meet­ing, I told them I was not feel­ing well so I’m won­der­ing who set the agenda for that meet­ing,” he said.
