Top Emmerson Mnangagwa supporter and Grace Mugabe antagonist Nathaniel Mhiripiri was found dead in a suspected Zanu PF inside job after he had initially gone missing for three days.

A police report also supports that the late politician died because of foul play.

His decomposing body was discovered at his Abeid Farm 10km along Rusape- Mutare Highway, three days after he went missing.

He is believed to have been murdered by yet to be identified assailants near a stream a few metres from the main road which lead to his farm house. His relatives reported him missing to the police on Monday and a search was launched at his farm.

His body was found lying under a tree in a ‘dried’ pool of blood.

It was conveyed to Rusape General Hospital for post-mortem yesterday.

Zanu PF big wigs are currently locked in bloody turf wars as rival factions battle to take over the party when Mugabe departs in the near future.

Unexplained deaths, accidents, arson, stalking, expulsions and  hostage taking is now a feature of a new divided Zanu PF, the party struggles to stand firm as Mugabe slowly and finally departs from the political stage.

Just to show how tense the situation is in Zanu PF, this week, Zimbabwe’s Information and Communication Technology deputy minister Win Mlambo had to run for dear life after party youths from a rival faction charged at him for allegedly intruding in their area.

Sources revealed that the youths who accused the deputy minister of trying to establish his own centre of power in the area were given instructions by a very powerful ‘lady politician’ based in Harare.
