FIRST Lady Grace Mugabe’s ally and Zanu PF women’s league finance secretary, Sarah Mahoka, is reportedly sitting on a knife edge, as the women’s league executive in Mashonaland West is plotting to boot her out over allegations of interfering in provincial league matters.
Mahoka’s rivals have threatened to sign a petition to have her relieved of her party posts, following reports she was behind a foiled plot to remove provincial women’s league chairperson, Angeline Muchemeyi through a vote of no-confidence.
Muchemeyi yesterday confirmed Mahoka’s alleged shenanigans, saying she was being persecuted for attending a war veterans’ meeting in Chinhoyi a fortnight ago.
“That woman is evil. She wanted me removed for no apparent reason. She lied that I attended a war vets meeting where the President (Robert Mugabe) and the First Lady Amai (Grace) Mugabe were ridiculed and belittled. The other issue is Mahoka wanted me to suspend Munondo and Jennifer Mhlanga, which I refused,” she said.
But Mahoka yesterday played down the rift, saying the issue of Muchemeyi’s no-confidence vote was referred to the provincial women’s league by the provincial co-ordinating committee.
