President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s special advisor, Christopher Mutsvangwa has written a strongly worded letter threatening party commissar Lieutenant-General (retired) Engelbert Rugeje that he will preside over a failed ZANU PF in this year’s polls.
Mutsvangwa signed the letter not as an Norton constituency candidate, but as the Presidential Advisor. The job post is not backed by the Constitution.

Cde Engelbert Rugeje – ZANU PF NPC
This letter Is further to my cell phone call of 2nd May 2018 to you Engelbert Rugeje – NPC advising you that I was withdrawing from the polls. I unreservedly reject the results of the just held ZANU PF party polling in Norton. I refuse to accept your announcement of Langton Mutendereki as the winner.
The main reason being the unconstitutional use of the Zimbabwe state agency as election returning agents. These policemen were principal players uninhibited rigging as well as wholesale denial of the act of voting to legions of bona fide members.
Of particular note is that the cell register used for polling was illicitly compiled by Constance Shamu to solely further the illegal win of Langton Mutendereke. It is inconceivable that a politically active constituency such as Notion can only tender less than 4 000 votes This patently false picture would spell electoral danger in the upcoming National Elections
I am busy collating evidence to back up the charges I have submitted.
