Zanu-PF has extended an olive branch to former party cadres who were sacked between 2014 and last year.

Among those invited back into the party are Rugare Gumbo, Didymus Mutasa, Ray Kaukonde, Ambrose Mutinhiri, Joice Mujuru and Dzikamai Mavhaire.
Meanwhile, Mnangagwa met one of former president Robert Mugabe's top allies, Ambrose Mutinhiri, amid indications that the Zanu-PF leader is on a charm offensive to lure back his foes into the ruling party.

Mutinhiri last year wrote a stinging letter criticising the coup that saw Mnangagwa taking over from Mugabe in November last year and went on to dump Zanu-PF.

He was one of the 23 candidates that took part in the July 30 presidential elections, where he performed dismally.

However, last Wednesday he met Mnangagwa, where it was agreed that the former Mashonaland East Provincial Affairs minister would be cleared to rejoin Zanu-PF.
