Zimbabwe’s Zanu-PF party is reportedly embroiled in recent infighting, as the southern African country’s war veterans who were instrumental in President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s rise want ex-cabinet ministers completely kicked out from the party.
According to Daily News, the southern African country liberation fighters accused the ex-ministers of corruption and undermining president Mnangagwa plans to revive the nation’s moribund economy.
Unnamed Zanu-PF insiders were quoted as saying that the former ministers who were now stationed at the party headquarters could become victims of the “disgruntled” war veterans who were envious of their pecks.
The ruling party heavyweights were said to be earning salaries equivalent to government ministers.
The former liberation fighters had since threatened to storm the Zanu-PF headquarters and remove the targeted officials if the party failed to take action.
