Zanu PF says they are hunting down criminal cabals Moyo and Kasukuwere

Zimbabwe's ruling party Zimbabwe African National Union - Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) spokesperson Simon Khama Moyo (C) reads the outcome of the caucus meeting on November 20, 2017 at ZANU PF headquarters in Harare. Zimbabwe's President came under increasing pressure to quit on November 20, 2017 as his ruling party said it would move to impeach him and the army revealed his likely successor would soon return to the country. In a televised address late on November 19, 2017, the 93-year-old president had flouted expectations he would step down after the military's takeover, pitching the country into a second week of political crisis. / AFP PHOTO / ZINYANGE AUNTONY (Photo credit should read ZINYANGE AUNTONY/AFP/Getty Images)

The morning after the revolution, and it seems like the Zanu PF members involved in overthrowing Robert Mugabe haven’t even begun their mission yet.

Though Bob may have stepped down, Zanu PF remain in power. The ruling party have presided over Zimbabwe for the last 37 years, and have been complicit in some of Mr Mugabe’s most brutal decisions. They need a sharp change of direction, and they seem to be getting it early.

Zanu PF lay down the law with ex-members

ZANU-PF spokesperson Simon Moyo spoke to SAFM this morning, for their #AMLive programme. He revealed that the interim government will continue to ‘hunt down fugitives’ who are wanted in connection with corrupt activities:

“The writing was on the wall. This is the will of the people of Zimbabwe. The focus now is to solidify unity and promote peace”

“Some Robert Mugabe allies are fugitives from justice. They are being hunted and the law must take its course. People must account for their misdemeanours. They were involved in corrupt activities.”

“Among those expelled from the party are really criminals. We don’t want anything to be done outside the law.  Former ZANU-PF members were protected by the president.”

Where is Grace Mugabe?

Moyo finally broke the silence on Grace Mugabe, who’s been out of sight during the week of this non-coup. He confirmed that she has been under house arrest for the entire time, pouring water on the flames of a few wilder theories.

The spokesman wouldn’t be drawn on whether Gucci Grace will face charges or not. She’s was named in the now-redundant impeachment papers as being a danger to Zimbabwe, after trying to usurp her husband’s power.

On the same show, the Institute for Security Studies stated that Emmerson Mnangagwa would be sworn in as Zim’s new president today. He is expected to remain in charge up until a general election in 2018 (either August or September).
