I am not G40: Zhuwao

Youth minister Patrick Zhuwao

PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe’s nephew, Patrick Zhuwao, has said he is not part of a Zanu PF faction known as Generation 40 (G40).

Zhuwao, the Youth Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment minister, has been linked with the group that also boasts of, in its ranks, First Lady Grace Mugabe, Vice-President Phelekezela Mphoko, Zanu PF national commissar Saviour Kasukuwere and Higher and Tertiary Education minister Jonathan Moyo.

But in a statement yesterday, Zhuwao said: “I have absolutely no knowledge of such a formation nor the declaration of such a group of faction within Zanu PF.”


“It can only be concluded that to associate me with any faction, in this case a so-called G40, is mischievous by certain divisive individuals to abuse the media to maliciously undermine and bring into disrepute my position as a member of Zanu PF and as a minister within a Zanu PF government.

“As such, I am demanding that these divisive individuals stop abusing the media and immediately desist from associating me with or attributing my mandate within Zanu PF and its government to this so-called G40 faction,” he said.

Zhuwao said he had since instituted legal proceedings against a State media columnist “in the hope that all media institutions will review their editorial policies to put into effect sentiments expressed by President Mugabe”.

Zhuwao said he was dissociating himself from the G40 faction in response to calls by Zanu PF women’s league secretary for finance Sarah Mahoka for Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa to act against people “who purport to act on his behalf”.

“Although Mahoka’s statements were aimed at Honourable VP Mnangagwa, I believe they apply to all leaders conceptually,” he said.


  1. So Gay40 is no more? Zhu is suing a State media journo so that reference to Gay40 excludes him. Nice move. Next!

  2. No amount of denial will dissociate you from the Gang JUAO . What was your business in Lupane with Saviour, Jonathan etc when you connived to suspend the chairpersons for Masvingo,Midlands and Mash East? You are G40 to the core. Just shut up. Mahoka this Mahoka that did you not send her to humiliate the VP? Nonsense.

  3. Dr. Grace Mugabe, I want to bring to the attention of the President, Cde Robert Gabriel Mugabe, Dr. Grace Mugabe, Saviour Kasukuwere and Police Commissioner Augustine Chihuri to thoroughly investigate CST Hove stationed at Makamba in Hwedza. i was totally shocked by his utterances when he was on the road block. its unfortunate that i didn’t have a recording phone. He denigrated the President’s celebration to be held in Masvingo saying it was better to give him the money than sponsoring that event. i am not a politician but i was deeply touched by his speeches which was totally misguided. i tried to check his number which appeared like 070 624C. This constable has a very bad influence which should not be swallowed at all by any Zimbabwean even a neutral person. Was he properly vetted when he was included in the police force. i wonder. The place is Goto Rusape. Please, Please, Please, this man must be investigated well.

    • Makandi today you seem to be busy with this nonsense bootlicking of yours. I have seen this message somewhere today. Your stupid president doesn’t even know that you exist, you are just wasting your time. Why don’t you do something productive with your life rather than praising a dictator. Leave the constable alone please you imbecile.

  4. Iwe Makandi washaya nyaya here. Celebration to do what and get what out of it. Your relatives are dying of hunger due to the drought and iwe ndipo paunorwadzikana nezvisina kana nebasa rose. Kana akamutuka zvinebasa reyi. Pane murume asingatukwi. Respect is earned not demanded.

  5. Makandi, Zimbabwe is in a state of what it is because of stupid people like you. So you mean people should not express his or her feelings nekutya the likes of you who always want to investigate people of their utterances. Wake up and smell the coffee, we are all tired of the so called birthday party for one old man who is refusing to retire!!! Yes that money is shear waste of resources which were to benefit people like ana Hove not you. People are suffering everywhere but some chosen few chose not to see all that.Why? Its you bootlickers who need investigating!!!

  6. Kano dena kamfana aka. So he is challenging the VP to respond or is take heed, of Mahoka’s stupid statement.
    He must go back to Malawi this bwidi boy. Kafarisa manje.

  7. kkkkkkkkkkkkk! So what or who were you representing and belonging to when you chanted “pasi nemasuccessionist” recently in Chiweshe? We all know you were refering to Lacoste otherwise your sekuru would hv alluded to the existence of a third faction – other than G40- to which you belong

  8. juaò ne maGay40 ako you can go hang with your silly mahoka ngwena will not brooke any of that nonsense shut up!

  9. Our revolutionary Leader is the best that the African Continent has had so far.He has given the native people land and is on his way to Economically Empower Africans.No African Leader dead or alive has ever provided that for his / her people.Many Africans admire this African State Man. In 2014 I went to Kenya…and a certain friend of mine said”We have had want Zimbabwe is going thru bt we wld have wanted to borrow your President to sort out the Land issue that has caused civil strife in our country”.Those words still echo in my ears even today. As a Zimbabwean I am very proud of what the President has done so far, that is why South African EFF and ANC is now advocating for Land Redistribution and Black Empowerment. Long live His Excellence, R.Magabe…a Legendary Leader and African Icon!!!!!…Pasi Ne Operation Shumba…Pasi Ne Lacoste..Pasi Ne G40..Ne ma Rebellious War Vets Pamberi Nava Mugabe Chete Chete
