IT never rains but pours for former Mines and Mining Development minister, Walter Chidhakwa, who is on remand facing criminal abuse of office charges, after Zanu PF slapped him with a 14 day prohibition order barring him from carrying out any party activities.
In a letter to Chidhakwa dated 12 March, 2018, Mashonaland West province disciplinary committee chairperson, Keith Guzah, said Chidhakwa was engaging the G40 cabal and working to undermine the President Mnangagwa led administration.
"You are hereby served with a prohibition order for 14 days. You should cease forthwith carrying out any party activities. A list of charges related to your misconduct are attached herewith."
The charges include plotting to oust President Mnangagwa from office as President and First Secretary of Zanu-PF.
Chidhakwa is also accused of corruption at party and Government levels, abuse of office and aiding and abating criminal elements around the former president, Mr Mugabe, with the view to tarnish President Mnangagwa's image
Guzah said all other ancillary charges would be availed to Cde Chidhakwa in the hearing.
Chidhakwa was relieved of his duties in November last year when President Mnangagwa announced a new Cabinet. He was arrested in December last year on charges of corruption by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC).
The ex-minister was arrested again last month together with his former permanent secretary, Professor Francis Gudyanga on a separate charges of abuse of office.-Online. LOCAL NEWS.
