Harare – Disgruntled youths from  Zimbabwe’s ruling Zanu-PF party have reportedly threatened to join a march against corruption, organised by the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) on Wednesday next week.

According to NewsDay, the youths were unhappy over the manner in which Local Government Minister Saviour Kasukuwere handled the stands dispute at Ushewokunze Housing Co-operative in Harare.

An unidentified Zanu-PF youth said that they had had enough of corrupt Zanu-PF leaders.

This came a few days after President Robert Mugabe reportedly grilled Kasukuwere over the allegations that he allocated land meant for youths to his cronies, including a famous prophet, Walter Magaya.

"We are fed up with this corruption. Zanu-PF leaders have become land barons. They go around the country claiming that the land belongs to youths, yet they are feeding themselves. It’s now time for bhora musango (siding with the enemy)," said a Zanu PF youth, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The September 21 demonstration was organised by the MDC in a bid to force Mugabe to oust Kasukuwere.
