Norton legislator (independent) Temba Mliswa has claimed that some members of the ousted ZANU PF faction, G40 are keen on rejoining the party.
The remarks are in a leaked audio recording purported to be a recorded phone call between Mliswa and Sakunda Holdings boss Kudakwashe Tagwirei. Mliswa said:
Kasukuwere called me yesterday and do you know what he said? I wanted to work nemukoma wako (your brother President Emmerson Mnangagwa) Temba but show me who his people are in his Cabinet. He even dumped Chinamasa.
The only people he has are Oppah, Chiwenga and Kembo otherwise the rest (are not his people). Yourself Temba supported Lacoste but none of the current Ministers supported Lacoste. So how do you then appoint people who don’t follow the party policy because the point of appointment is, first of all, they come from the party…It was a good question I could not answer.
The G40 faction that was reportedly being led by the former first lady Grace Mugabe was dismantled when the late former president Robert Mugabe was dislodged from power in 2017.
The majority of the factions’ leadership is in exile in fear of retribution of Mnangagwa for harassing him when he was still the Vice President.
Recently, some of them met with South Africa’s ruling ANC and expressed interest in rejoining ZANU PF.
