Harare, Zimbabwe (News of the South)-AXED Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa has been officially fired from the ruling Zanu PF party.
Party spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo said the decision was endorsed during a politburo meeting held yesterday.
Khaya Moyo said Mnangagwa, who was fired from government on Monday by President Robert Mugabe for various allegations that included undermining the Zanu PF leader had been expelled from the party for fanning factionalism.
