Former cabinet Minister Saviour Kasukuwere’s spokesperson Jacqueline Sande, a lawyer who represented Saviour Kasukuwere in his legal challenge against his dismissal from Zimbabwe’s 2023 presidential election race, has been called to appear before the Zanu-PF disciplinary committee.
Sande addressed countless press briefings before and after the sitting of the nomination court on behalf of the former Zanu-PF National Commissar.
According to a letter circulating on social media, she is being accused of violating the party’s constitution due to her representation of Kasukuwere, who is seen as unrepentant by the party.
Below is the Zanu-PF letter to Sande.
