Minister of Home Affairs, Obert Mpofu, has revealed that the administration of President Emmerson Mnangagwa will engage the services of Interpol to hunt down and extradite G40 Faction members and allies of former president Robert Mugabe who fled the country. G40 Kingpins Jonathan Moyo and Saviour Kasukuwere are reported to have gone into exile in Kenya, after the fall of Mugabe. Former Ministers and Mugabe allies Joseph Made, Walter Chidakwa, Ignatius Chombo and Jason Machaya have already been arrested and have pending court cases.
Speaking to the Standard, Mpofu said:
We are doing everything possible to ensure that those that have committed crimes within Zimbabwe and are outside Zimbabwe are brought to book. If it means engaging Interpol, we will go that route.

The process is two-pronged, we are looking at the local investigations and outside investigations and outside investigations, they involve Interpol.
We are talking about all those that committed crimes in Zimbabwe and if they committed crimes, they will be involved in this exercise.
If those three are involved in crimes committed in Zimbabwe they will definitely be part of our investigations.
President Emmerson Mnangagwa last week said that he had forgiven all but three members of the Generation 40 (G40) faction. He was reported to have said:
… I have forgiven the cabal and they are in the country except for only three who remain outside and still saying funny things but all that will soon come to an end.
Mnangagwa was referring to Moyo, Kasukuwere and Mugabe’s nephew Patrick Zhuwao.
