Former Information deputy minister, Bright Matonga has been kicked out of Zimbabwe People First (ZimPF) on claims he is a spy.

Matonga is said to have been gathering vital information for the military.

"Matonga was expelled a few weeks ago after being accused of being a spy for the military and especially for a faction of Zanu PF associated with Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa," an insider said.

Contacted for comment, Matonga said he was attending a funeral.

Early this year, ZimPF raised the red flag claimed the ruling Zanu PF party and State security agents had deployed agents within its ranks to destabilise it.

This is not the first time that opposition parties have accused Zanu PF of deploying spies to gain sensitive information and plot the collapse of most democratic movements since the 1990s.

MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai has previously accused Zanu PF of infiltrating his party structures and fuelling the many divisions that have rocked the opposition since its formation in 1999.
