Impeccable sources told The Standard last week that Zanu PF officials told the Joint Monitoring and Implementation Committee (Jomic) that they had asked Mujuru to reign in the Zvimba East legislator.
This was after he openly defied Mujuru by threatening to re-invade tourist resorts along Lake Chivero despite the fact that his supporters were chased away by the police last month.
Jomic last week issued a hard-hitting statement on the invasions, which was jointly signed by representatives of the three parties in the unity government, including Zanu PF’s Oppah Muchinguri.
The body said the invasions were against the spirit of the Global Political Agreeement (GPA) that underpins the unity government.
Jomic reportedly wanted to summon Zhuwao before Muchinguri intervened saying they would make sure that Mujuru summoned the youthful MP for a dressing down.
Zhuwao issued the threats after Mujuru had apologised to the owners of the facilities and promised that the invasions would not happen again.
MDC-T’s representative in Jomic, Elias Mudzuri, confirmed that Zanu PF had promised that the MP would be told to respect the rule of law.
