Matutu Receives Death Threats From Zanu Pf Bigwigs
ZANU PF politburo member and deputy youth league chairperson, Lewis Matutu, claims to have received death threats from party bigwigs who are not happy with him after he threatened to expose corruption.
Matutu told journalists that he is receiving threatening calls at night from his peers. He said:
They call at night saying Zanu PF kills, they are threatening me, but I will not be moved. The only person I will listen to is President Emmerson Mnangagwa. I made a personal decision to join Zanu PF and will not be pushed or silenced by anyone.
He further claimed that he was aware of children of ministers who are involved in illegal foreign currency dealings. He said:
I know children of ministers who are selling foreign currency on the black market, I can give you names and numbers of these people and you can go and change money with them. I am giving them up to Sunday to come clean and if they fail we will name and shame, make no mistake
Matutu, however, played down the death threats, saying that ZANU PF “does not kill”. He reckons that the calls are simply a way to silence him but he will not be deterred.
