A Zanu-PF source told NewsDay that former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s allies have dumped him and are now pleading with officials from the G40 faction to be spared from expulsions.
The Zanu-PF source who declined to name those that have dumped Mnangagwa said that the former VP’s allies are out to save their political careers. Said the Zanu-PF source:
You will be surprised to see how people are making frantic efforts to cleanse themselves. They are desperate to disassociate themselves with Mnangagwa. We are talking of people who have known no other political home except Zanu PF. They are knocking at every door to pledge loyalty to Mugabe. Some are have started denouncing Mnangagwa openly and this week of central committee elections, more will be coming. They have to change with the winds otherwise they will be fired, Mnangagwa stood there and denounced the likes of Victor Matemadanda and Christopher Mutsvangwa when they were fired from the party. Why do these people have to act any differently.
