Promise Mkwananzi and other Tajamuka leaders were paid by the Zimbabwe National Army to engage in violent demonstrations in an effort to fight former President Robert Mugabe's rule National Patriotic Front Spokesperson Jealousy Mawarire has alleged.

Mawarire revealed the information after Mkwananzi had accused him of being a violent person.

Mkwananzi had said, "Mawarire speaking of violence. Is this the same Mawarire who broke Gift Nyandoro's leg at the Bronte hotel?"

The question was not taken lightly by Mawarire who responded saying, "I hope you will have the decency to also tell the nation how you, and your Tajamuka cdes, were paid by the army during President Mugabe's last days to turn demonstrations violent, destroying people's cars and other properties."

Mkwananzi did not respond to the allegations despite numerous people asking him to do so.

It is not the first time that Mawarire has accused pro-democracy activists of being paid by ZANU PF.

Recently he fingered Pastor Evan Mawarire as being one the persons who were paid by the army to engage in anti-Mugabe protests.

Mawarire further confessed that he beat Gift Nyandoro in self-defence.

"I did not deny that I defended myself when someone came to the hotel I was attending a workshop to attack me. Let's also follow through what happened after that, I RESIGNED. Did someone resign in this MDC-A violence case? This one and many more?" He said.
