Former Higher Education Deputy Minister and Magunje MP Godfrey Gandawa has denied being linked to Grace Mugabe’s G40 Faction in Zanu-PF.
Gandawa made the claims yesterday, as he sought to clear his name following speculation that he boycotted First Lady Auxilia Mnangagwa’s function in Karoi on Friday because of their factional differences. Said Gandawa:
It is true that I did not attend the function, but I was away in India and came back after it was done. I never snubbed it at all. I have never been a member of the G40 faction. In fact, I sent an apology to the Zanu PF party leadership as per our norm since I am an MP within Hurungwe because I was committed somewhere. I can produce my passport to confirm that I was not here.
Gandawa and Hurungwe East MP, Sarah Mahoka did not attend Auxilia’s event with Mahoka claiming she was attending a funeral in Sanyati district.
