A minister in President Robert Mugabe's cabinet Professor Paul Mavhima was last week allegedly spotted courting the services of a spirit medium and traditional healer in Ghana.

According to details leaked to the media by an organisation called Oceanic Omnipresence which was posted on Facebook by Zanu PF activist and Mugabe's staunch supporter Energy Mutodi, the minister who is perceived to be a follower of the Team Lacoste faction is understood to have visited the sangoma to save himself from an impending cabinet reshuffle targeting ministers loyal to Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

"Things have fallen apart in the ruling Zanu PF party such that almost every cabinet minister now feels insecure and next in the firing line over unproven allegations of supporting a faction or for acting in a manner deemed to derail the success of a favored G40 faction," reads the leaked details.

Team Lacoste and the G40 faction are currently fighting for supremacy in ZANU PF with the winning faction expected to produce a successor to President Mugabe whenever he retires from office.

President Mugabe who clocked 92 years this year has refused to name and groom a successor, insisting the people will make their choice when the right time comes.

Meanwhile, police at Borrowdale police station are currently investigating a case of threats of future violence in which two accused persons Saul Mabanga and Another only named Major Nyatawa approached a prominent hitman and assassination specialist Fidelis Fengu with a request to lure prominent businessman and Zanu PF member Energy Mutodi to a drinking outing and subsequently poison him.

"The two accused persons had offered Fidelis US$2000 as a deposit for the job but failed to do so prompting Fidelis to spill the beans to the would-be victim. A police report was subsequently made under RRB number 2427245," reads the leaked information.

"When the accused persons approached the assassin, they claimed they were working on orders from two prominent ministers inclined to the G40 faction (names supplied) who were not happy with Mutodi's Facebook posts that they believe were affecting their succession scheme. More details will be published as the investigation progresses.
