Zanu-PF planting spies in MDC-T
The ruling Zanu-PF party has exposed that it has been planting spies in the opposition MDC-T after Pearson Mbalekwa who served as Tsvangirai’s security adviser during the coalition government won the right to represent Zanu PF in the Chiwundura constituency. The seat in Chiwundura was left vacant by the recent death of Kizito Chivamba.
Zanu PF’s Midlands provincial secretary for security, Owen Ncube, is reported to have told security leaders that Mbalekwa was in the clear because he had been assigned to monitor the MDC-T after his loyalties were questioned.
A source who attended the meeting said:
There were attempts to have Mbalekwa disqualified because of his stint at MDC-T, but the meeting, which was chaired by (Daniel Mackenzie) Ncube, thwarted the attempts.
Ncube told the meeting Mbalekwa was a Zanu PF asset in the MDC-T and he had shared information with his team, leading to the overwhelming victory for the ruling party in 2013.

However, Mbalekwa himself could not explain why he rejoined Zanu-PF saying:
Let people say what they want to say. I was in the MDC for six years and stayed out of politics for two years. If they want to say I was a spy, it’s up to them
