A number of convicted criminal and several other dodgy characters are vying to represent Zanu-PF in this year's Emmerson Mnangagwa's commitment to the fight against corruption and the ruling party's own vetting processes of prospective candidates.

This also comes as the party readies to hold its primary elections this weekend and the new Zimbabwean leader has set out to win 2018's harmonised plebiscite on a clean-government campaign, and economic success.

While the list of those flagged for a number of commercial crimes and serious brushed with the law includes Campion Mugweni, Killer Zivhu, Energy Mutodi and Gilbert Muponda, analysts say Zanu-PF ricks "blunting its anti-graft crusade"if these people were allowed to compete in the national elections and the hazard of the ex-revolutionary movement being seen as "a haven for felonies".
