Members of the beleaguered ZANU PF faction the G40 are reported to have landed positions in the MDC party’s Harare Metropolitan provincial executive.
It is reported that Shadreck Mashayamombe and Jappy Jaboon have been smuggled into the Secretary for Mobilization committee and the Secretary for Strategic Projects (Intelligence committee) in the MDC respectively.
MDC spokesperson Jacob Mafume has defended the appointments saying:
“They are coming in as alliance partners, remember they were candidates for MDC in last year’s harmonized election. What stops these members from being in an executive committee yet we wanted to send them to Parliament to represent us as a party?”
Fears of infiltration were high in the MDC, but it seems that view has been relaxed. Some believe that those former G40 members bankrolled the party that had been struggling to get financial support in the run up to the elections so they are now being rewarded.
