Jonathan Moyo, who only last week came to the defence of President Emmerson Mnangagwa when National Patriotic Front spokesman Jealousy Mawarire said he was a Zambian and not Zimbabwean, today said no one trusts Mnangagwa, even his wife.
This was after Moyo posted the Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front circular on the launch of its manifesto and campaign and chided that this was junta chaos and a Colly Colbert commented: “It was strategic Jonso”.
“Strategic, my foot. In politics, your word is your currency,” Moyo responded. “That’s why nobody trusts Mnangagwa in #JuntaPF. I mean nobody. Even his wife does not trust him, moreover I doubt that he trusts himself! #Handeitione.”
Tinashe Vuso, however, defended Mnangagwa saying: “Because he is a strategist he is the President and you are stuck in a hole somewhere very far away from home you talk too much and think talking too much is strategy yet it exposes your weaknesses.”
Moyo responded: “He was politically defeated; ran away from genocidal & corruption skeletons in his wardrobe; came back only as Chiwenga’s hired coup-president for seven months & now he’s past his sell by date because he’s unelectable; he cannot possibly win a presidential election; never ever!”
Mnangagwa has largely ignored Moyo’s taunts as well as calls by Nelson Chamisa, leader of one of the factions of the Movement for Democratic Change, for a one-on-one television debate.
