Former vice president and leader of the opposition National People’s Party (NPP), Joice Mujuru is reported to have inadvertently admitted that she is working with the Generation-40 (G40) Faction. Speaking at a rally in Bindura last year, Mujuru reportedly said:
There is an issue that is confusing people that I met with Mugabe and that I have returned to Zanu-PF. I did not rejoin Zanu-PF. Be happy that Mugabe realised his mistakes. He is a human being and wanted to gauge the extent of anger against him.
It is true we met. We held hands and prayed. I told him that I have my own party in Mashonaland Central and I am working with G40 members here. He told me that he advised his boys in G40 to work with me. The rude Zanu-PF is gone. He failed to close the barrel of the military tank with his hand.
President Robert Mugabe appears to be bitter about the way he was ousted last November and appears to be working to frustrate President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s efforts to win the 2018 harmonised elections. Mugabe has endorsed the new political party, the National Patriotic Front (NPF).
