Harare - The newly formed Zimbabwe People First (ZimPF) party has claimed that spies from President Robert Mugabe's Zanu-PF have infiltrated its ranks in order to destabilise it from within, a report said on Wednesday.

This comes at a time when the ZimPF is preparing for the much awaited 2018 presidential elections, which would see its leader, former Zimbabwean vice president Joice Mujuru, going up against her former boss.

Mujuru, together with other top Zanu-PF officials, weas ousted from the ruling party and government in December 2014 after First Lady Grace Mugabe alleged that they were harbouring ambitions to oust her husband.

Mujuru, however, maintained that the allegations were baseless.

According to NewsDay, ZimPF spokesperson Rugare Gumbo said that the newly formed party was aware that state secret agents and ruling party spies were being planted inside the party.

He, however, claimed that despite these challenges, the newly formed party would "soldier on".

"We know that they have deployed spies within our organisation to peddle falsehoods and cause confusion, even to take information and understand our activities, but that will not deter us in anyway," Gumbo was quoted saying.

Reports indicated that the ZimPF was planning to have its headquarters outside the capital Harare.
