It has been reported that tampers flared during a ZANU PF Politburo meeting held on Wednesday with party officials coming close to a fist fight.
Senior party officials were angry with the Youth League after it released names of those it accused of corruption.
Close sources revealed that Secretary for Administration, Cde. Obert Mpofu was close to beating Deputy Youth Secretary Cde. Lewis Matutu before President Mnangagwa.
“Mpofu was beside himself with anger. He threatened to beat up Lewis Matutu in particular. He actually said ‘I will beat you up with open fists.” Said the source.
Another prominent figure to be implicated in shady deals was Prisca Mupfumira. Another source revealed: “She was also very angry and shouted at Matutu as well as (youth league politburo secretary (Pupurai) Togarepi. They stood accused of pushing a factional agenda.
“The only person who seemed to have been ready to defend himself and calmly so was (Minister in President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s office) Joram Gumbo.”
