Own Correspondent|Bulawayo and Matabeleland region as a whole is at the moment going through a tense time where citizens of the region are collectively up in arms in defence of under government and ZANU PF siege Chief Felix Nhlanhlayamangwe Ndiweni of Ntabazinduna.
The ruling party has been demanding for Ndiweni to be dethroned allegedly for demanding the West to tighten sanctions against Zimbabwe after government evicted a white commercial farmer from his area.
He was recently attacked by a group of ZANU PF Youth League members who wanted to take away an official vehicle he was given by government after accusing him of aligning himself with the opposition MDC.
Prior to the latest incidents, Ndiweni has been involved in a huge legal scuffle with former Umguza legislator Dr Obert Mpofu who is also the ZANU PF Secretary for Administration.
Mpofu has repeatedly called on government to dethrone Ndiweni claiming that he was not properly put to the Ntabazinduna chieftainship left vacant after the death of the renowned Chief Khayisa Ndiweni.
Mpofu claims Nhlanhla is not the rightful heir.
