Infomation ministry permanent secretary Nick Mangwana says the nation must not be blind to the possible involvement of late former President Robert Mugabe's remnants in the alleged abduction and torture of three MDC Alliance activists.
MDC legislator for Harare West Joanna Mamombe, activists Cecilia Chimbiri and Netsai Marova were allegedly seized from the hands of the police by suspected state security agents over two weeks ago.
G40 is the moniker given to a Zanu PF faction that once mounted fierce resistance against then Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa's takeover ambitions as the country's number one.
Mamombe and colleagues were allegedly abducted after leading a May 13 public protest against government's failure to ensure safety nets for the poor during the Covid-19 lockdown period.
Both government and Zanu PF have denied involvement, with some top officials insisting the claims were an attempt to taint President Emmerson Mnangagwa's regime.
