Zanu PF suspends Mutare DCC chairperson
CHIPINGE TIMES REPORTER
MUTARE – Zanu PF has suspended Mutare District Coordination Committee (DCC) chairperson Binali Yard and four committee members. The five have been suspended for five years.
The four accomplices are Brian Marange, Tawanda Ndawe, Webster Mudzimwa and Trust Matimba.
Party provincial secretary for information and publicity Sam Matema confirmed the suspension in an interview with Chipinge Times.
“The Zanu PF provincial executive has suspended Mutare District Coordinating Committee (DCC) chairman Binali Yard and four members of his executive, Brian Marange, Tawanda Ndawe, Webster Mudzimwa and Trust Matimba on account of indiscipline and illegalities finding expression in the illegal parceling of land in the Gimboki area of Mutare municipality under the cover of the Party name,” he said.
Binali and his accomplice are in remand prison. They are charged with contravening Section 24(1) as read with Section 24 (4) unlawful carrying out development without permission.
Provincial Magistrate Tendai Mahwe denied them bail last week. Yard was arrested last Monday while coming from a Joint Operations Command (JOC) meeting at 3 Infantry Brigade.
He applied for bail when he made his initial appearance in court on Wednesday.
