On 28 January 2016, in an interview on ZiFM Stereo, presidential spokesperson George Charamba, who was believed to be siding with the Emmerson Mnangagwa faction, attacked what he labelled succesionists.
One tragedy of those little fellas, and I call them little fellas, they confuse media skills with social skills. They think you can scale up a political ladder by tweeting, who think when you manipulate one or two headlines, you have a social base for launching your stupid ambitions, they will come to grief, get it from me. Tensions are mounting in Zanu PF. Accusations and counter-accusations are being thrown. This time around it is George Charamba VS Jonathan Moyo or more particularly the G40. My boss’ tenure is being discussed by his juniors. And that’s what makes me angry.
Below are some of Jonathan Moyo’s tweets responding to the interview:
3/3 Some of us with hard lessons on the 2004 tragedy of factions resisted the Mujuru faction not for the other faction but for Pres Mugabe!
