ZANU PF’s secretary for security, Lovemore Matuke, has confirmed the prevalence of intra-party conflict in the ruling party ahead of planned District Coordinating Committee (DCC) elections.
Matuke told the Daily News on Friday that members were unnecessarily labelling each other G40 members in a bid to be more appealing in the party’s upcoming elections which are part of the ongoing restructuring exercise. He said:
We did our vetting and everything went well. What is worrying is that people are labelling each other G40 without concrete evidence.
It’s an election, and so if someone realises that his or her competitor can win, he or she will label him or her a G40 member.
People are throwing all sorts of accusations against each other without evidence.
As the security department, our job is to vet candidates, and I can tell you that people are just making unnecessary accusations against each other.
