Zanu Pf In Fresh G40 Headache As Supporters Stage Demo
Zanu PF are in for a trip ahead of primary elections this weekend after dozens of supporters stormed the party’s headquarters on Monday demanding the withdrawal of known G40 members from the race.
Party members from Mufakose, Waterfalls and other constituencies demontarted outside Zanu PF headquarters, accusing the elections directorate of allowing G40 members into the primary elections.
Central committee member, Larry Mavima said people who were demonstrating and labelling their rivals as G40 did not appreciate Zanu Pf ideology.
“President (Emmerson) Mnangagwa has been clear, saying the party won’t accept candidate imposition,” he said.
“He has also gone further to say let bygones be bygones and the fact that even those who chanted slogans against him, while he was being hounded out of the country, are being allowed to stand as candidates was clear testimony of ideas and not hate speech.”
“Party members should know the difference between those who had lost the ethos of the party and elect the leaders whom they know will share the vision of our leader, the vision of unity, forgiveness and policy driven governance,” he said.
“The G40 elements should be defeated at the ballot and not at CV level.”
Party spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo said he was unaware of the root cause of the disgruntlements.
