Moyo fingers fellow G40 members in 2004 Tsholotsho bid to remove Mugabe

    Key members of a faction within Zimbabwe’s ruling party Zanu PF were central, instrumental, and at the forefront of a failed attempt to reform the party, and remove Mugabe as President as far back as 2004, according to an expose by Professor Jonathan Moyo.

    The foiled attempt which led to the firing of Professor Jonathan Moyo, the ‘mastermind’, identified Robert Mugabe as the weak link and the reason for Zanu PFs poor performance in the parliamentary elections held in 2000, and Presidential elections held in 2002.

    The attempt also laid the blame of runaway inflation, mounting poverty and policy uncertainty on Mugabe.

    Minister of Defense, Sydney Sekeramayi, Minister of Home Affairs Obert Mpofu, Minister of Local Government Saviour Kasukuwere, along with late former Minister Stan Mudenge, former Minister of State Security Didymus Mutasa, the late Political Commissar Elliot Manyika, and many others were fingered directly by Professor Jonathan Moyo in an archived articled penned in December, 2004.

    Sekeramayi, the newest poster boy for the G40 faction has been touted by Moyo as a potential successor to Mugabe, while Mugabe’s motormouth wife, Grace Mugabe has hailed him as Mugabe’ most trusted cadre, even stating that when Mugabe was afflicted by severe diarhea and under the impression he was dying, he called for Sekeramayi and held a private ‘death bed’ meeting.

    According to Moyo, Sekeramayi was part of a succession committee setup to engineer Mugabe’s removal from power. While Kasukuwere came within a whisker of moving a motion to have Mugabe remove completely.

    The committee became ‘busy and reckless’, leading to animosity, suspicion, and eventual failure, he added.
