President Emmerson Mnangagwa has for the umpteenth time accused the expelled ZANU PF G40 faction and its alleged sympathisers of undermining his government.
Speaking during a post-politburo media briefing on Wednesday, ZANU PF acting spokesperson Patrick Chinamasa said Mnangagwa spoke about the issue during the meeting. Chinamasa said:
His Excellency (Mnangagwa) told the Politburo meeting that social media is awash with the clandestine machinations of the G40 and their sympathisers.
They are using social media to make an orchestrated launch and an onslaught against our country and party.
But they will not get anywhere and the people will get to know that they are there to disrupt our orderly development.
Most of the G40 members are now living in self-imposed exile after fleeing the country in November 2017 following a military coup that ousted then President Robert Mugabe from office.
The supposed G40 kingpins include former ministers, Jonathan Moyo, Saviour Kasukuwere, Patrick Zhuwao, Walter Mzembi, Godfrey Gandawa and Mandiitawepi Chimene.
Moyo is holed up in Kenya while Kasukuwere, Zhuwao, Mzembi and Gandawa are based in South Africa. Chimene is in Mozambique.
Moyo has been accused of using microblogging site Twitter to expose top-secret government and Zanu PF meetings.
Mnangagwa’s government is seeking to have Moyo, Kasukuwere, and Mzembi extradited to Zimbabwe to answer to fraud charges.
