Ncube said, “Robert Mugabe workers quizzed over National Patriotic Front. Meanwhile, he is in Sandton meeting with G40 comrades.”
Mugabe slipped out of the country early Wednesday for what was described as a “private” visit to South Africa.
The 94-year-old took a scheduled commercial Air Zimbabwe flight to Johannesburg but there was no information as to the purpose of his visit.
Last week former Mashonaland East provincial Affairs minister Ambrose Mutinhiri a retired Brigadier General announced he was quoting Zanu PF.
Mutinhiri then met Mugabe on Sunday after which it was announced that he had been appointed interim president of the new National Patriotic Front (NPF) party.
The opposition grouping had hitherto been fronted by Mugabe’s nephew and former Cabinet minister Patrick Zhuwao and colleague Jonathan Moyo.
Speculation in Harare claimed that Mugabe could have travelled to South Africa to meet Zhuwao and Moyo to strategize for the new political project. This could however not be independently verified.
