Newly elevated ZANU PF’s youth league secretary Kudzai Chipanga’s elevation to a ministerial post seem to have hit a snag following reports that he only passed three subjects at Ordinary Level.
There were widespread murmurs that Chipanga was likely to be elevated to a minister in cabinent following President Mugabe’s announcement last week that the youth leader was no longer in acting capacity.
However, his elevation seems to have for now been stalled after reports emerged that he does not posess 5 passes at ordinary level. Chipanga has been acting as the ZANU PF youth league secretary since the passing of a vote of no confidence on the then youth league secretary Pupurai Togarepi.
Chipanga together with Tongai Moyo and youth administrator Innocent Hamandise masterminded the vote of no confidence on Togarepi. Chipanaga is aligned to the G40 led by First Lady Grace Mugabe. Other members of the group include Higher Education Minister Jonathan Moyo, Local Government Minister Saviour Kasukuwere, Youth Empowerment Minister Patrick Zhuwao, Sarah Mahoka, Mandi Chimene, Sandi Moyo, Joseph Chinotimba and George Mlala.
