OUSTED Zanu PF Mashonaland West chairperson, Temba Mliswa says he will remain a loyal member of the ruling party despite his humiliating and controversial suspension.

Mliswa, who did not attend the Zanu PF 6th national people’s congress which ended on Saturday after a vote of no confidence was passed on him, said the next few days would see disappointments in the ruling party as some people will find themselves without positions.

“At the end of the congress there is going to be politburo announcement by President Robert Mugabe followed by disappointments from the announcements.

Naturally the President cannot accommodate everyone at the congress in the politburo,” he said.

Mliswa is linked to the faction led by Vice-President Joice Mujuru. A fallout in the party due to deep factional fights saw Mujuru, Secretary for Administration Didymus Mutasa and Labour Minister, Nicholas Goche, not attending the congress after threats of physical and verbal attacks.

Mliswa is on record saying there was nothing wrong in supporting Mujuru as she was the second in command both in the party and government.

Another senior Zanu PF official who requested anonymity said he feared for his life.

The official said he was warned against setting foot at the congress venue in Harare.

He said the constitutional amendments endorsed by the congress yesterday, were illegal.

The official said the Zanu PF constitution stipulated that proposals for any constitutional amendments should be circulated to provinces three months before congress.

The constitutional amendments saw Mugabe having the sole responsibility of appointing members to the politburo and presidium.
