Minister stages 'a palace coup'

HARARE – Recently appointed Masvingo Provincial Affairs minister Paul Chimedza has staged a bloodless palace coup by making himself the Zanu PF deputy chair in the volatile Masvingo Province in the wake of a power vacuum occasioned by the purported suspensions of top allies of Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa in the fractious region.

Chimedza is being linked to the Generation 40 (G40) faction, fighting tooth and nail for the control of Masvingo province — presently dominated by allies of the embattled vice president, collectively known as Team Lacoste.
