Zanu-PF leader Emmerson Mnangagwa yesterday condemned Zanu-PF supporters that were terrorising people in Harare South and threatened to descend on them.

Officiating at the burial of former Cabinet minister Callistus Ndlovu at the National Heroes Acre in Harare, Mnangagwa said action should be taken against the culprits.
He cited Harare South where his nephew Tongai Mnangagwa is the MP.

"Let us desist from divisive politics. Such kind of politics has no place in the new Zimbabwe," he said.

"We condemn in strongest terms actions by some hooligans with a hidden agenda who went about attacking people in Harare South while in Zanu-PF regalia and destroyed people's stores and merchandise, destabilisations of peace" .

"This is criminal, this will not be tolerated."

Ndlovu's burial resembled a military parade as it had more soldiers than the usual Zanu-PF supporters.

Ndlovu (83), also a member of the Zanu-PF central committee, collapsed and died a week ago in South Africa where he was being treated for pancreatic cancer. Ndlovu is survived by his wife Angeline, five children and seven grandchildren.
