War veterans leader and Deputy Minister of Defence (War Veterans) Victor Matemadanda has warned that Zanu-PF is going to purge all people found to be working with the G40 Faction and the MDC Alliance. He also warned people who work at Zanu-PF’s headquarters whose loyalty was questionable. Addressing war veterans Matemadanda said,
…heads will soon roll at Shake Shake building to bring sanity and order. Some officials working at party offices are still working with the G40 and G40 is the Gamatox which is a Rhodesian Reactionary Movement. Thus why NPF is joining hands with MDC Alliance, those are just desperate people who want positions and do not care about the revolution…My word of advice is that those who want to work for the party must not make us doubt them.

Makandipa manyawi ndozviita.
