PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa has on Wednesday read a riot act to Zanu-PF party leaders who have a propensity of leaking classified information to the public, Zim Morning Post can report.

This was revealed in his address to Politburo members Wednesday at the party headquarters.

"The constitution of the party outlines the duties of all members, I urge us to constantly read and adhere to those provisions we do not expect leaders to put the party into disrepute,

"Let us exercise great discipline in dealing with the media and always seek to build and not tear down party and its leadership," Mnangangwa said.

His pronouncement comes amid reports that the fissures in the ruling party are widening with speculative reports suggesting that Mnangagwa and his deputy Constantino Chiwenga are at odds with each other.

Recently, Mnangagwa relegated youth league leaders Pupurai Togarepi, Godfrey Tsenengamu and Lewis Matutu .

According to close sources, the move by Mnangagwa to gag his party members from having a direct interface with the media emanated from the behaviour displayed by youth league leaders Matutu and Tsenangamu, wherein they ruffled some feathers in their fight against corruption.

"H.E (Mnangagwa) is not amused with what the notorious twins did (Matutu and Tsenengamu) , so he is trying to avoid such divisive blunders," said a close source.
