Deputy Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Energy Mutodi has announced that he is ready to become Politiburo Secretary for Youth if President Emmerson Mnangagwa appoints him to that position.

“I am ready to serve as the ZANU PF Secretary for the Youth League if President ED Mnangagwa chooses me.” Said Mutodi. “I am committed to the establishment of an informed, vibrant, vigilant and empowered youth league for the good of our party ZANU PF and for the greater good of Zimbabwe.”

Mutodi’s announcement comes after ZANU PF Youth league passed a vote of no confidence on the current Secretary for Youth Pupurai Togarepi and four other members of the Youth League on Wednesday.

The five were accused of treachery and failing to defend President Emmerson Mnangagwa and the party and also diverting party funds.

In a media briefing at the ZANU PF headquarters in Harare yesterday, ZANU PF youth league national political commissar, Godfrey Tsenengamu, said the vote of no-confidence was moved and supported by two-thirds majority of the national youth league executive council.

“Cde Togarepi and Cde Matutu converted and diverted resources meant for the youth league for personal use or for use without the resolution of the youth league national executive council,” Tsenengamu said.
