In an interview with The Herald, Zanu-PF secretary for Legal Affairs, Paul Mangwana, said former President Robert Mugabe risks losing Zanu-PF membership, constitutional privileges and respect for meeting and endorsing Retired Brigadier General Ambrose Mutinhiri’s National Patriotic Front (NPF).
Mangwana said the national constitution does not allow a former Head of State to be involved in active politics. He said Zanu-PF will meet soon to decide on Mugabe’s membership following reports he is involved in forming NPF. Said Mangwana:
In the fullness of time, Zanu-PF will have to meet to discuss these new developments about the former Head of State and Government to review whether it is still necessary or not for him to continue enjoying the status we had given him. Ordinarily, a former President should play a father figure role and should not join active politics, particularly opposition politics. The party will have to decide. If the party is satisfied that he has violated that principle, he will lose his Zanu-PF membership, he will also lose privileges and immunities accorded to a person of a Head of State and forfeits the respect he was enjoying.
