Zanu PF is currently re-admitting its expelled members and also taking in disgruntled opposition supporters in preparation for the 2023 elections.
In 2018 Former Zanu-PF Youth League leader Kudzanai Chipanga has apologised for his links to the G40 cabal and wrote to the party’s First Secretary and President, Emmerson Mnangagwa seeking readmission into the revolutionary party.
Chipanga admitted his actions had “gone against the dictates of the revolutionary party’s ideology”. He wrote: “I am very humbled to write to apologise and do hereby beg for readmission into the party.
“I know very well that I cannot alter what I did, it pains me that I have caused a mar in my record. I have learnt from my previous mistakes. I am still a young person prone to mistakes and I am still learning the ropes of life.
As such, I deeply regret my actions and conduct. I am very sorry to the rank and file of the party for the troubles I caused during my tenure as secretary for Youth Affairs.”
Chipanga added: “Words alone cannot express my deep regrets for my actions. I humbly request for the party leadership to kindly overlook my mistakes and forgive me.
“Your Excellency, I beseech you to pardon me and readmit me as an ordinary card-carrying member. I know no other party other than Zanu-PF. It pains me to be cast outside the party. After going through this letter, I believe you will find room to forgive me.”
