    Shumba withdraws party car from Lacoste as factionalism heightens


    - Zanu PF MP for Masvingo Urban Daniel Shumba is understood to have withdrawn a party motor vehicle from a war veteran who is aligned to Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa and handed it over to a G40 member as factionalism in Masvingo gets to boiling point.
    The vehicle, a Mazda BT50 double cab which was allocated to former Provincial War Veterans chairman is understood to have been reassigned to the new party provincial chairman Amasa Nhenjana who has been walking to meetings because he has no car.
    But Shumba allegedly withdrew the vehicle at the weekend after he realised that Muchena who was once his (Shumba's) campaign manager was now in a different camp.
    Shumba is understood to be part of the G40 which is loyal to First Lady Grace Mugabe.
    He is also said to have used his powers as the deputy secretary for transport in the Politburo to reallocate the car.
    "Shumba found out that Muchena was no longer on his side after he was part of the war veterans who denounced the chanting of the slogan; "Pamberi na Dr Grace".
    "This was exacerbated at the Nemamwa inter district meeting where Shumba had differences with some executives from his constituency over Grace slogan issue," said a source who attended the meeting.
    Efforts to get a comment from Dr Shumba were fruitless.
    However, Nhenjana denied having been given a car by Dr Shumba.
    "I have not been given any vehicle by Shumba, I will get a car from the head office very soon," said Nhenjana.
