Chasi responds to reports he is targeting to challenge ED’s position
My picture below has been used for a poster suggesting that I have ambitions beyond my current position. The suggestion has not originated from myself nor do I have such ambitions or intentions. My party has its procedures and I’m bound by and support the choices already made.
Whilst I respect every person’s views and opinions, I am of the strongest view that regard must be had to my own circumstances and as a party member. I have never expressed myself as such and have never contemplated such.
I consider it mischievous that a campaign poster can be created and circulated without consultations with me or my approval. Accordingly, I wish to emphatically disassociate myself from the suggestions.
My party, ZANU PF, has specific constitutional provisions dealing with Presidential candidate selection. I am bound thereby. I support fully our President.
If media reports are anything to go by, Chasi is one of the most hardworking MPs in Zimbabwe, something which may have prompted calls for him to challenge for the top post.
Advocate Fortune Chasi is the ZANU PF MP for Mazowe South, and is also the Deputy Minister for Transport and Infrastructure.
He refutes allegations he is aiming to run for the party’s presidency.
