Saviour Kasukuwere who was branded a gay gangster by Temba Mliswa has failed to confirm or deny if the allegations are true or false.
Instead, he only managed to hang up the phone when reached for comment.
"That one is now crazy, I don't take him seriously," he said before hanging up the phone prematurely.
Mliswa had fired his broadside "The question is whether the party has become a party of gay gangsters because it is not a secret that Kasukuwere and Jonathan Moyo are close."
"It is a whole syndicate of gay people, otherwise what would you be doing shopping in New York with another man, leaving your wife behind and the man is excited about having to go shopping with you?"
Mliswa asked rhetorically, adding that this was the reason why suspended Sunday Mail Editor Edmund Kudzayi, "a 29 year-old man without a wife" had been hired by Moyo.
Mliswa alleged that Moyo was behind a smear campaign against him, which was meant to mask his (Moyo's) own links to the American spy agency.
Independent political analyst Blessing Vava says Zanu PF's worsening infighting is threatening national security and development.
"The bad thing is that currently we have no opposition in the country taking advantage of the problem in Zanu PF. The infighting in Zanu PF means the cabinet ministers are focusing on taking over power and not concentrating on reviving the ailing economy and related issues," said Vava.
Factions in Zanu PF are battling to position themselves ahead of the elective congress.
Deputy President Joice Mujuru and Justice Minister Emmerson Mnangagwa are said to be fighting for vantage positions to take over from 90-year old President Robert Mugabe. Both have previously denied leading factions.
