I am not keeping my fingers crossed that anyone from either Zanu-PF or
the MDC is going to be expelled by their party over theft of funds.
In the past both parties have only taken disciplinary action only in
cases where the offender has challenged the top leadership. The cases of
Dzikamai Mavhaire and Munyaradzi Gwisai are examples.
Otherwise not a single expulsion of senior members has resulted from the
numerous past cases corruption that have been widely reported and I do
not expect the mentality of protecting each other for reasons of
political affiliation to start changing now.
