TWO senior Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition officials quit in a huff amid internal feuding allegedly fuelled by political meddling in the group’s projects by some influential MDC-T officials.
Programmes manager Pedzisayi Ruhanya and regional coordinator Dewa Mavhinga tendered their resignations last month under unclear circumstances.
Sources said the duo were unhappy with the appointment of director MacDonald Lewanika, whom they felt was irregularly given the job since he was a member of the interviewing panel as the coalition’s board chairman.
They also accused him of kowtowing to Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office Jameson Timba.
However, Lewanika refutes the accusations as the work of detractors saying the departure of the two was a normal transformation phase of the organisation.
“Issues of employment are personal matters which the coalition does not discuss in public,” Lewanika said. “What I can confirm is that the coalition and Ruhanya did part ways, but under mutual circumstances.”
