The Robert Mugabe endorsed National Patriotic Front (NPF) did not fire Brigadier General (retired) Ambrose Mutinhiri, a senior official has said.

NPF spokesperson Jealousy Mawarire denied reports that Mutinhiri was not fired from the party but reassigned to another position.

"(Mutinhiri) was not fired from the party but reassigned to another position. He was never an able leader from the onset," Mawarire told party supporters.

The NPF is backing MDC Alliance leader Chamisa in the presidential vote.

"We are working towards a possible coalition with Chamisa but details will only be availed once we have finalized the talks," said Mawarire.

The fledgling party has already split with one group backing interim leader Ambrose Mutinhiri while another insists he has been relieved of his duties.

Addressing a Press conference last week, former Bulawayo provincial affairs Minister Eunice Sandi Moyo said Mutinhiri had been recalled for refusing to cooperate with the founding members and going to bed with members of the incumbent Government in an attempt to destabilise the party.

She accused Mutinhiri of hiring thugs to harass party members.

Said Moyo: "He did not want to work with us. He wanted to set up his own parallel structures but we could not allow that."

"He does not attend meetings. We send him communication but he does not reply. Now we do not know whether he had come to destabilize us or what."

She said the only good statement Mutinhiri made was to announce his resignation from Zanu-PF, to lead NPF.
