HARARE – Former Minister of Higher & Tertiary Education and alleged G40 Faction mastermind, Professor Jonathan Moyo has of late been attacking President Emmerson Mnangagwa and the Zimbabwe Defence Forces Generals for allegedly coming to power through the use of military arms.
Moyo is yet to appear in public ever since the Zimbabwe Defence Forces launched Operation Restore Legacy which ultimately resulted in the ascendancy of Mnangagwa to lead the country after the resignation of former President Robert Mugabe.
Moyo has taken to using social media site, Twitter to launch broadsides at the generals, whom he terms “gukurahundists” and “genocidal junta” and the president who he terms a “genocidal gukurahundist.” Moyo accused Mnangagwa and the generals of having a sense of entitlement and declared that they are not going to last, “come rain or shine.” According to Moyo, Mugabe was willing to hand over power to the youth, and was only stopped from doing so by the generals who he accuses of feeling entitled. He goes on to add that any political transition which is not based on youth is “hollow and therefore doomed” to fail. Said Moyo:
Any change or political transition in Zimbabwe which, 37 years after independence, is not based on or driven by #generationalrenewal to bring the youth who are the country’s demographic majority into mainstream politics; is hollow and therefore doomed!
Firstly President Mugabe had an electoral mandate up to 22 July 2018. Secondly and most important he was committed to handing over to the youth whose time has come through #generationalrenewal. This was at odds with the Junta who believe in entitlement!
Only an idiot would think it is smart for a genocidal junta to violently shoot itself into power to install a fellow genocidal gukurahundist under the mantra of stockholder entitlement. If you & your lot think that will last, then you ain’t seen nothing yet; come rain or shine!
The tragedy of the gun in Zim is that it’s controlled by the same 1980s Gukurahundists who’ve committed atrocities before and gotten away with it; and who are thus prone to repeat the atrocities ad infinitum unless & until the people take control of the gun! #GenerationalRenewal
Responding to President Mnangagwa’s three-month amnesty to return illegally externalised funds, Moyo goes on to accuse Mnangagwa and Zimbabwe Defence Forces Commander, General Constantino Chiwenga of having looted 15 Billion from the Chidzwa diamond fields. Moyo urges the President and the general to lead by example and to return the $15 billion from China where they allegedly stashed it.
Good start indeed. So let him & Chiwenga lead by example by returning the $15 billion from China!
The presumption that an old violent & looting dog can practice new tricks is nothing but a fallacy. Once a 1980s military Gukurahundist, always a Gukurahundist & once a Chiadzwa diamond looter, always a looter!
Moyo who was reported to have been arrested by the military in the aftermath of Operation Restore Legacy, seems to be finding his tongue again and is tweeting more regularly. There have been unverified reports that he is now outside the country living in exile.
