ZANU PF Youth League leader, Kudzai Chipanga, in a statement said Chiwenga together with Mnangagwa must account for the missing money as they presided over revenue from the country's diamonds.
Several military tanks and trucks were spotted heading towards the Zimbabwean capital Harare Tuesday, prompting fears of a possible coup or show of power by the army.
"The said statement by General Constantino Chiwenga which was not signed, and which did not represent the rest of the Command Element, suggests treasonous conduct on his part as this was meant to incite insurrection and violent challenge to the Constitutional Order", Moyo said. The long-serving veteran of Zimbabwe's 1970s liberation war, had been viewed as a likely successor to Mugabe before the president fired him.
"We must remind those behind the current treacherous shenanigans that, when it comes to matters of protecting our revolution, the military will not hesitate to step in", armed forces chief Constantino Chiwenga said on Monday.
Chiwenga on Monday issued a hard hitting statement urging the ruling party to stop expulsion of party members with a liberation war background.
Mnangagwa's removal provides a boost for Grace Mugabe, the wife of the president, who is supported by the largely youthful G40 faction of ZANU-PF to succeed her husband.
Analysts said it was premature to talk of a coup attempt but there appeared to be a rupture between Mugabe and the military.
But the 75-year-old former vice-president has powerful military connections, having served as defence and state security minister.
Four people have been arrested for booing first lady Grace Mugabe at a rally. "If he condemns that statement, then he is saying therefore I am for the young turks against the war veterans", said Eldred Masunugure, a political science lecturer at the University of Zimbabwe.
