Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage Minister Kazembe Kazembe told reporters on Wednesday that a recent upsurge in rumours is aimed at tainting the image of President Mnangagwa and to render the country ungovernable.

He said there were being peddled on dubious online platforms, as a desperate case of agenda-setting by the opposition, disgruntled former Zanu PF members and Western governments through their local embassies.

They urged Zimbabweans to be wary of plots to create instability and to undermine the authority of the Government, warning that those engaging in treasonous acts would be punished.
