Defence Minister To Confront President Mnangagwa Over Tsenengamu And Matutu Suspension3 years ago
ZANU PF chairperson, Oppah Muchinguri is reportedly in the process of confronting President Emmerson Mnangagwa over the suspension of former leaders of the party’s Youth League.
Byo24 reports that ZANU PF Political Commissar Victor Matemadanda who is also the Deputy Minister of Defense had assured the suspended leaders, Godfrey Tsenengamu and Lewis Matutu of the Central Committee’s support on their anti-corruption drive.
An unnamed ‘source’ who is said to be privy to the developments said:
Oppah Muchinguri is using her position as National Chairperson to whip central committee members into supporting Matutu and Godfrey Tsenengamu, while Pupurai Togarepi uses his influence on ZANU PF MPs who are also members of Central Committee by virtue of being MPs.
The game plan is to out number politburo members and out veto their decision in a bid to bring back Matutu and Godfrey Tsenengamu who are useful foot soldiers of the Muchinguri bid for Vice Presidency.

The publication also further alleges that Christopher Mutsvangwa who is the former advisor to President Mnangagwa is also supporting Muchinguri since her elevation would increase his chances of becoming the party chairperson.
The source also alleged that group targets the demise of Vice President Constantino Chiwenga who they say is physically and morally unfit and lacks the integrity to hold the second-highest office in the ruling party.
