Two more ZANU PF officials have been suspended over their alleged participation in a plot aimed at dislodging president Emmerson Mnangagwa from power.
The duo is from Matabeleland North and includes youth league chairperson Tamuka Nyoni and both are said to have been involved with the thwarted July 31 anti-government protests.

The development was confirmed by Zanu PF’s secretary for security in the politburo, Lovemore Matuke while speaking to Daily News. He said:
The investigations are still ongoing and the two from Matabeleland North, including the young boy (Nyoni) were suspended to allow the investigations to be completed.
We want to see if the greediness that led them to accept the money had links to July 31 protests. It is from the investigations that we will be able to tell how widespread the issue was.
We are relying on information in our files.
The party’s Mashonaland West provincial chairperson, Ziyambi Ziyambi, also confirmed that Zanu PF’s security department was conducting a similar probe in the province.
Cleveria Chizema was suspended last week for failing to report anti-Mnangagwa fliers delivered to her home in March this year.
The fliers reportedly elevated Vice President Chiwenga who is allegedly leading a faction to oust President Mnangagwa.
