Gandawa made the remarks yesterday, as he sought to clear his name following speculation that he boycotted First Lady Auxilia Mnangagwa’s function in Karoi on Friday because of their factional differences.

“It is true that I did not attend the function, but I was away in India and came back after it was done. I never snubbed it at all,” he said.

“I have never been a member of the G40 faction. In fact, I sent an apology to the Zanu PF party leadership as per our norm since I am an MP within Hurungwe because I was committed somewhere. I can produce my passport to confirm that I was not here.”

Gandawa and Hurungwe East MP, Sarah Mahoka were conspicuous by their absence at the event, which was attended by most top Zanu PF officials in Mashonaland West province.

Mahoka claimed she was attending a funeral in Sanyati district.


  1. If you were not G40 then you were nothing but we will never be deceived by such statements which have the hallmarks of licking.

    1. if he was G40, then what

  2. he is a straight bootlicker

  3. Whether you were G40 or not, is of no particular value to us. What we know is that you were exposed in the Zimdef scandal together with your boss, you guys were thick as thief’s hanti?
    Confirm to us that, ‘all good things must come to an end”

  4. Iwewe gandawa ne boss yako robin hood pindura nyaya dzako pakubira zimdev apa. Kunyangwe uchiti you are not G40 asi pindura apa. G40 or Lacoste that does not hold water. Tokuziva iwe ne boss yako robin hood kuti you are G40.
