Zanu PF youth league boss, Pupurai Togarepi, his deputy Lewis Matutu and three other National Executive Council members have been cleared by the ZANU PF National Disciplinary Committee (NDC).
Sources said the NDC confirmed having received the vote of no confidence petition which endorsed the ouster of the entire executive but there were no incriminating evidence against the youth league leaders.
“The NDC has decided to give the executive another chance and that there was no evidence to suggest that the team was sabotaging the president,” the source said.
Insiders, however, said the issue is deeper than it appears to be as some very senior officials in the party have sought other provinces’ support to resist Togarepi’s ouster.
“There are people who have decided to engage other provinces so as to rally support for the executive,” the source said adding: “The move by the NDC will destroy other youths’ confidence because the youths are aware of how this executive is corrupt and has failed to carry out its mandate.
