Youth Secretary Kudzai Chipanga accused Chiwengathe of overstepping his boundaries.

On Wednesday Chipanga withdrew his statement in a live broadcast, saying he was ill advised to read a statement which he and the youth league had not authored.

Please accept my apology on behalf of the youth league and myself. We are still young people, we are still growing up, we learn from our mistakes and from this big mistake we have learned a lot.

Kudzai Chipanga, Secretary of the Zanu-PF youth wing

I would also like to emphasis that this statement that I have just given, I have not been persuaded neither coerced or forced to do such.

Kudzai Chipanga, Secretary of the Zanu-PF youth wing
