THE Zanu PF politburo yesterday declared that all party members suspended for being linked to the G40 faction last November would only be readmitted back into the party after five years.

Addressing journalists after yesterday’s politburo meeting, party spokesperson, Simon Khaya Moyo said the party also resolved to lock out all expelled members until after five years.

“Cde Oppah Muchinguri (Zanu PF national chairlady) gave a comprehensive report on disciplinary hearing. Members expelled and confirmed by the extraordinary congress in 2017 remain expelled and can only reapply if they wish to rejoin the party after five years. That is mainly those members of the G40,” he said.

“She (Muchinguri) will communicate to all provincial chairpersons regarding disciplinary cases affecting each province as agreed by the politburo. In other words, measures will be communicated to her on how these cases should be handled.”

Several party members, including former First Lady Grace and former ministers Jonathan Moyo, Saviour Kasukuwere, Patrick Zhuwao and Ignatius Chombo, and youth leader, Kudzai Chipanga, among others were fired from Zanu PF after the November military intervention that ushered in President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s rule after years of nasty succession battles in the party.

Many more members were suspended after the November 19 central committee meeting that fired Grace and members of the G40.

Mugabe has now been linked to a new opposition party, National Patriotic Front, led by Ambrose Mutinhiri, while other alleged G40 activists have reportedly been secretly canvassing for readmission into the ruling party.

Moyo said the politburo also approved the party’s new regalia for this year’s general elections.

  1. Comment…That’s another blind move from ED and its going to work to the opposition’s advantage !! politics of expelling members is very disastrous and like the Bourbons of France, the zanupf leadership has not forget or learnt anything after the recent downfall of Former Zimbabwe Strongman Robert Mugabe. After Mugabe had expelled Former Vice President Mujuru and her so called gamatox faction it took only mere three years for him to be condemned to the political dustbins a situation that he was least expecting !! I think if he can manage to make a come back through his new party NPF he will never again encourage or allow the expulsion of members since this weakens every political party !!

    1. its zanu pf end

      it all has to be like that because zanu pf is not meant to rule beyond the coming election. before it is vanquished in the coming election, it has to first dismantle itself by way of all this that’s happening in it right now including the expulsions and counter moves by the expelled of forming such parties like zimpf, npp, npf.

  2. simple political analysis will show G40 was definately a dominant force in zanupf prior to unseating of Bob. extentinguishing a few or all top G40 leaders does not kill the loyals down in the heirachy who do not see a future in their political aspirations in the “new”..old. re-ignition at the top at the right moment, the right way will bring out a new monster. Bob does not need to even come back..just his backing with the billions he stole and
