Mujuru, who was kicked out of the ruling party in December 2014 together with other senior members on allegations of plotting to assassinate President Robert Mugabe, launched the Zimbabwe People First (ZPF) party in Harare last week.
In its January 2016 report, released on the day of the ZPF launch, ZPP said across allÂ the provinces Zanu PF wasÂ battling to exorcise the â€˜ghostâ€™ of Mujuru.
â€œSuspicion is rife among fellow Zanu PF members as some no longer trust their colleagues whom they accuse of dabbling in People First politics.
â€œThere are repeated warnings the ruling party is issuing out to its membership against the â€œfollyâ€ of joining People First lest they be left out of distributions of food aid and input assistance,â€ said part of the report.
â€œIn more pronounced instances, in Hwedza a group of suspected state agents were deployed to the area in order to monitor People First movements and progress.â€
ZPP also said of the 208 cases of human rights violations they recorded in January 83% of them were perpetrated by Zanu PF against supporters of Mujuru.
â€œFor its part, the MDC-T was also accused of perpetrating violent acts including a report from Mukarakate Village in Murehwa South, where a member of the party who defected to the Renewal Democrats of Zimbabwe (RDZ) had his house set on fire,â€ the report said.
