Psychotic Moyo in power denial – Charamba

    The Presidential spokesperson, and Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of information Media and Broadcasting Services George Charamba has described the former Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education Professor Jonathan Moyo as a “bitter defeated politician” in response to attacks made by the latter during the interview aired on BBC.

    Moyo, who was interviewed by Zeinab Badawi on the popular talkshow, Hardtalk, claimed that the current government is illegitimate by virtue of ascending to power through the bullet and not the ballot.

    Moyo’s comments are in sharp contrast to those offered by the Southern African Development Community (SADC), the United Nations (UN) and the African Union (AU) who all applauded the Zimbabwean transition.

    The African Union later ruled that the transition in Zimbabwe was not a coup according to its definitions, statues and guidelines.

    Moyo made several incredible claims, including that he has fled the country fearing for his life. Moyo left his foreign wife alone with his children, and despite his claims, his family have not been harmed, leading many analysts to call Moyo a coward.

    Moyo made further claims that those running the government are the most feared people in the country as they were involved in the Gukurahundi massacres. His view was immensely challenged, with many people referencing the near millions who sang and danced in jubilation, praising Vice President Chiwenga, and President Mnangagwa.

    Charamba scoffed at Moyo’s claims, saying that, “When you move from the zenith of power to dust to the dust of nothingness you suffer a serious psychological disorientation and that is exactly what he is suffering from.”

    Charamba quizzed how Moyo who had been in government for a very long time only brings up the issued of the massacres when he has been thrown out.

    Charamba added that Moyo had placed a burden on the former President, Robert Mugabe, whose house he dumped his large family at.


    “Let him come and clear his name in the courts of law” said  Charamba.

    Meanwhile people have asked questions on why Moyo sought media refuge from the BBC, a platform he constantly demonised and even banned from the country when he was the Minister of Information.

    It was his first appearance in the media since he fled the country mid November last year.
