This appears to be targeted at senior party officials like Saviour Kasukuwere, who is the current Zanu PF political commissar, Professor Jonathan Moyo and several others believed to be supporting a faction of the party backing First Lady Grace Mugabe to succeed her husband.




This faction is known as Generation 40 or G40. The other group is allegedly led by Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who is being backed for the position by the war veterans.

Other demands include the return of ZIPRA properties seized by the government a couple of years ago that are now being utilized by the state for various purposes. – VOA
