Zimbabwe army on 'high alert' as Mugabe allies plan to 'cause division within the military'

Ex-Zanu PF officials linked to Grace Mugabe's G40 group are believed to be behind the plot.

Privately owned Zimbabwe Independent newspaper reports that the Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) Commander Phillip Valerio Sibanda has warned the soldiers against taking bribes from ex-Zanu-PF officials linked to former first lady Grace Mugabe's Generation 40 (G40) group.

The G40 members, who were expelled from the ruling Zanu-PF party when Mugabe was ousted in November, were reportedly merging around Grace.

Reports last weak indicated that members of the G40 were about to launch a new party in Zimbabwe.

Mugabe's nephew Patrick Zhuwao, who was also a member of the G40 said, however, that the new political outfit was not an avenue to bring back his ousted uncle.

The group was said to have over the past few weeks intensified its sharp attacks on the new government, criticising the military's involvement in ending Mugabe’s 37-years reign.
