Muchinguri was secretly recorded at a private house in Harare during a meeting of youths held on the 9th of June, the day former Mines minister Amos Midzi committed suicide at his farm in Beatrice.

In the recording, Muchinguri appeared to confirm that relations between particular ministers and senior party officials were frosty.

Responding to what seemed like leading questions, she confirmed that there were, people gossiping about her (Muchinguri) to the First Lady.

She said there were some officials spreading allegations that she was worse than ousted secretary for administration Didymus Mutasa, the former Manicaland political godfather whose place Muchinguri has now taken.

Muchinguri is allegedly heard in the recording telling the youths that Zanu PF national commissar Saviour Kasukuwere was saying all the bad things about her to the First Lady, but boasted that she was a survivor.
