Zanu-PF has described peddlers of fake news as irresponsible and mischievous after they claimed that the ruling party was forcing people to join the party during its current restructuring exercise.

The party has embarked on a nationwide restructuring process in preparation for the 2023 general elections.

Zanu-PF spokesman Simon Khaya-Moyo also dismissed reports that its councilors and legislators were politicising food relief.

"Zanu-PF has been alerted to fake news that our leadership in communities has been forcing people to join the party and register in cell structures.  We have also noted false reports in the press that Zanu-PF councillors and MPs are politicizing food relief aid in some communities.

"Nothing can be further from the truth. There is neither an iota of evidence nor substance in those allegations," Khaya Moyo has said.

He said the ruling party and President Mnangagwa were set for a resounding victory in 2023.

"One thing that remains clear for all including our detractors is that Zanu-PF and President ED Mnangagwa are set for a powerful thumping victory in 2023 and nothing can stop us. It is therefore, irresponsible and unbecoming for some mischievous elements in the press to seek to victimize and vilify us on that basis."

Khaya-Moyo said some members of the opposition were peddling falsehoods in the private media to discredit the ruling party.

"We are aware that there are those who have never accepted electoral outcomes and working with mischievous elements in our media society, they are now cooking up potential justifications for their imminent loss.

"This must stop. When such things happen, they should be reported to the police because the party and the curriculum of its ideological training abhors that totally," said Khaya Moyo.

He said the party is committed on delivering promises made during the 2018 campaigns

"Our might and majestic strides in delivering our promise to the people as provided for in our 2018 People Manifesto should be embraced as they attest to our decency, honesty, hard work, diligence and indeed our reliability and trustworthiness as a tried and tested party."
