    Chief Makoni, MP Chingosho clash as 2018 elections beckon



    NYASHA MUSAMBASI

    MAKONI - Chief Makoni, born Cogan Makoni has accused Headlands Constituency MP Christopher Chingosho of sending marauding Zanu PF youth to harass him.
    Speaking in a telephone interview with The Mirror, Chief Makoni said Chingosho is afraid of the beckoning 2018 elections hence the use of youth to humiliate him. He said that his wife (Chief Makoni's) has been going around assisting the needy with food and other necessities in Chingosho's constituency and this has disturbed the legislator.
    He alleged that Chingosho has been sending Zanu PF youth to assault the Chief's aides and they insulted and harassed Chief Makoni wherever they met him at public meetings.
    Chingosho said, "what I can say is that Chief Makoni's allegations against me are baseless. I did not harass him nor his family and neither have I send any youths like what he claims to beat up his aides or any Police officer. I have heard from my informers that Chief Makoni whenever he holds his meetings he tells people that his wife is aspiring to become the Member of Parliament for Headlands of which i do not feel threatned at all."
    Chief Makoni said he has reported the matter to the Police but no action has been taken. He also said that Chingosho suspects that the Chief's wife was eyeing the MP's constituency.
    Police Spokesperson for Manicaland Inspector Tavhiringwa Kakohwa said he has not received the case yet but what he can advice Chief Makoni to do is to make a follow up at the Police station where he reported the case.
     "I put the blame on Chingosho who is the current MP for Headlands as he is organising all these attacks I have been receiving. It is just because he suspects that my wife wants to contest him and become MP for this constituency which is not true.
    "I report these attacks to Police but nothing is done and it pains me to see these criminals being released from Police without going to court or even paying a fine. Being Zanu PF does not mean that one is above the law," said Chief Makoni.
    He alleged that Chingosho was afraid because he had not been doing his work as MP. Chief Makoni said he was recently surrounded by hooligans after visiting relatives in Inyathi who alleged that he wanted to appoint a headman.
    He alleged that the Police officer who attended the scene was beaten by the thugs.
