“The chief secretary to the President and Cabinet, Dr Misheck Sibanda, has announced the removal of Honourable Webster Shamu by His Excellency the President, Cde Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa, from office of Minister of State for Provincial Affairs for Mashonaland West Province,” reads the statement to the press.

“His Excellency the President has exercised his powers in terms of Section 108 (1) (a) as read with Section 340 (1) (f) of the Constitution. Hon, Shamu’s removal from office takes immediate effect.”

Shamu was in the eye of the storm during the recently held Zanu PF primary elections. The aspiring MP for Chegutu East, Webster Shamu was accused of allegedly trying to rig elections.

Shamu stood accused of allegedly stashing at least 120 ballot papers with an X penned against his name.

The former Zanu PF commissar was reportedly busted after signed 120 ballot papers were found in his car at the Uhuru-Nakazi center

This followed amid outcries of voting irregularities by his rival Vengai Musengi supporters.

Musengi’s supporters reportedly escorted the vehicle with the 120 signed ballot papers to the district command centre where they were demanding justice.
