Gutu – Borniface Nyadenga, a civil servant and an Agricultural Extension Worker in Ward 21 caused commotion at an MDC A executive meeting at Zvavahera Business Centre in Gutu on Sunday after he and a colleague ordered delegates to disperse because he had not been told of the meeting.

The meeting was being addressed by Sarah Mwatenga, an MDC Alliance Provincial councillor.

Potbellied Nyadenga who is also the young brother to the Zanu PF councillor for Ward 9, Medicine Nyadenga arrived at the meeting in the company of an unemployed youth Clephas Masora with beer bottles in their hands.

They told the meeting which was taking place under a tree that they were members of Chief Munyaradzi’s family and no meeting takes place in the area without their knowledge and permission. It however, turned out that they were not even remotely related or linked to Chief Munyaradzi.

Some members of the executive tried to negotiate with the two and party youth confronted them after realising that the duo was not prepared for talks. The no-nonsense MDC A youth told them to leave or they would face their full wrath.

The two left the venue in a huff shouting that Mnangagwa is the only ruler for Zimbabwe.
Nyadenga was not reachable up to the time of going to Press.

Councillor Nyadenga said that he was not aware of the incident and he dismissed his brother’s statements that he had also been sent by the councillor to disrupt the meeting.

“I am not aware of that meeting and it is therefore not true that I sent Borniface to disrupt the meeting. Has the matter been reported to Police? I will wait to hear about the development,” said councillor Nyadenga.
Masora could not be reached for comment because he has no phone.

MDC A Gutu North District chairman Philip Mahachi said Nyadenga violated civil service rules and will be reported to his employer so that he faces the music. He said he will consult lawyers and see if no charges can be brought against Nyadenga as a civil servant.
