Zanu-PF’s open-warfare sees MP in court for insulting Mugabe's wife

15 December 2015, 10:52

Victoria Falls – Zimbabwe’s ruling Zanu-PF party MP, Justice Wadyajena, has been granted bail of $800 after appearing in court on allegations of insulting President Robert Mugabe’s wife while attending the party’s conference in Victoria Falls last week, reports the Guardian.

According to the report, the Zanu-PF MP reportedly insulted another party member who had been canvassing for Grace Mugabe to take over from deputy president Emmerson Mnangagwa as the country’s second in command.

Wadyajena reportedly told Zanu-PF Jimayi Muduvuri: "You are a fool as well as that mother of yours." Grace is regarded as Amai (mother in local dialect) within party cycles.

A report by the Zimbabwe Mail revealed that the party emerged from the conference more divided than before as party members were tearing into each other after Mugabe openly admitted divisions.

Grace is reportedly the face of a new group [the generation 40 (G40)] that seeks to unsettle Mugabe’s right-hand man, deputy president Mnangagwa.

A News 24 report last week revealed that the ruling party was riddled with factions, with Mugabe publicly admitting for the first time that his party was on the brink of a split as party members positioned themselves to take over when he leaves office.

Mugabe, 91, has been at the helm for more than 3 decades. His party has endorsed him as its candidate for the next elections in 2018.
