GWERU – The Minister of State for Midlands, Jason Machaya has distanced himself from a faction in Zanu PF called G40 and added that he did not belong to factions but was behind President Robert Mugabe.
Machaya spoke in the wake of Zanu PF Midlands Provincial Coordinating Committee meeting held in Gweru last Saturday where it was declared that he was a G40 member who was going about setting up parallel structures.
"I am not a G40 and l do not support any factional activities in the province, my role is to represent the President as the Minister of State and that is what I am doing," said Machaya
Members who sit in the PCC had also alleged that Machaya was grossly abusing his office through unclear allocation of state land.
"We talked about Machaya, it has been proven that he is abusing his office to pursue a factional agenda. He abuses his office through improper acquisition of land, he is misleading youth and grabbing land from other party members to cause disunity so we have lost confidence in Machaya," said Cornelious Mupereri the Zanu PF Midlands spokesperson. In an interview with The Mirror, Machaya said factional fights were unnecessary as they stall development in the province.
"I wish that we all focus our energy on development, I agree we have our own differences but they should not destroy the agenda, we should all work together as a party.
"I serve at the President's pleasure which I believe I still enjoy. If some people no longer like me, it is something that I cannot help. I will work flat out to develop the Midlands. 
"There are some who are accusing me of allocating land. What they must understand is that I don't allocate land, I only recommend and no one gets land for free," said Machaya.
