Savanhu once served as Deputy Lands Minister under the now late President Robert Mugabe and also as the MP for Mbare.
Savanhu was first expelled from the ruling party in 2015 before he was readmitted a few years later.
However, in August last year, Savanhu together with Politburo member Cleveria Chizema, was expelled from the ruling party for the second time on allegations of organising the foiled #July31 anti-corruption national protests.
