Avowed critic of the first family and chairman of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) Christopher Mutsvangwa has claimed that the cabinet has a number of men who have romantic relationships with first lady Grace Mugabe. Mutsvangwa who has spent the past year attacking the first family and the Generation 40 (G40 Faction) referred to the ministers as ‘first boyfriends.’ Mutsvangwa made his startling claims from South Africa, where he is currently residing ever since former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa was expelled from the government and from Zanu-PF.
Speaking to the online publication, Khuluma Afrika, Mutsvangwa is reported to have said:
You now have a pseudo administration that is exclusively led by a bunch of ‘first boyfriends’ who are neither equipped nor qualified to be in such positions.
The common denominator among all these young ministers is their sexual involvement with Grace Mugabe. Nothing else. Nothing more.
The hallmark of this G40 cabal is plain to see over the last 15 to 20 years. The economy has been utterly destroyed, condemning many people to outright suffering.
This woman and her goals have no national interests at heart. She is more interested in surrounding herself with men who can satisfy her on request.
