DEFENCE Minister Oppah Muchinguri Kashiri says that the ruling Zanu-pf political party means business, is deadly and devours its own.
She made the remarks while addressing party supporters at a Star Rally in Karoi, Mashonaland West Province, Saturday.
She ominously warned party members fomenting factionalism and those splashing cash to buy positions that their days in the revolutionary party were numbered because the ruling party has a tendency to devour its very own children.
Speaking at Chikangwe Stadium in Karoi Saturday during a Zanu PF Presidential Rally to mobilise support for Karoi Urban Ward 4 councillor candidate, Solomon Chikwerengwe, the minister urged aspiring councillors and parliamentarians to humble themselves and unite the party.
Muchinguri-Kashiri said winners must embrace those who lost in the recently held provincial executive elections and primaries held to choose candidates to represent the party in the March 26 by-elections.
She said some candidates allegedly used money to weave their way into winning tickets to represent Zanu PF, but warned such leaders only lasted as far as their pockets.
Undisciplined cadres, she reiterated, will not last the mile as Zanu PF was vicious to the extent of cannibalising on its own members.
“Those who won in recent provincial elections and primaries, we congratulate you, but your victories are not bragging rights to beat your chests with pride. Zanu PF leaders come and go, but Zanu PF remains. Embrace those who lost as politics is a game of numbers, if you leave behind those whom you contested, they will plot your inevitable downfall.”
Earlier in the day, the minister commissioned a borehole in ward 4, drilled three days before the Saturday event
