Mnangagwa Responds To President Mugabe After Blue Ocean Expose’

The Anatomy of Party Capture

Vice-President Emmerson Mnangagwa is seen as a potential successor to President Robert Mugabe

By Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa| Your Excellency and fellow Politburo
members, a lot has happened since our last Politburo meeting where
Professor Jonathan Moyo brought to this esteemed house what he said was an
exposure of my alleged State Capture activities, Media Capture, Military
Capture, successionist plan among issues.

As I promised that I would respond to these and other issues, I stand here
today before you to unpack Professor Moyo’s serious allegations as
contained in his presentation.

As you might all remember, I asked for a copy of Professor Moyo’s
presentation in order to prepare for my response but it was never
delivered to me for obvious reasons which I will now unravel.

And thank God, the refusal to give me his presentation has only helped to
show the man that his and what he seeks to achieve.

My task was made easier by this man you see sitting here and whom I have
said is CIA Agent working to infiltrate and destroy our Party.

I can tell you Your Excellency, the same presentation, including audio
recordings of discussions of the last Politburo meeting done by Professor
Moyo were delivered to Western Embassies by his right hand man Edmund
Kudzayi, a man I shall talk about in detail later in my presentation.

On August 3 2017, the United States Embassy Senior Management and its
Intelligence operatives met and discussed issues that we deliberated on
here using a recording they have confirmed was made by Professor Moyo.

This was well before he released the same presentation to the media, which
he now claims was stolen from him when we all know that he is the one who
leaked it, the same way he has been leaking sensitive Government and Party
information to his handlers.

His decision to distribute the proceedings of the meeting confirms who his
handlers are and his not so hidden intentions in so far as his project to
destroy ZANU PF from within is concerned.

If anyone doubted the source of previous leaks of Politburo and other high
level Government meetings, here is the man. Whatever we are discussing in
the Party and Government to push the country forward is easily being
countered by our detractors using this charlatan.

Your Excellency if you needed confirmation that Professor Moyo is a CIA
Agent, just ask him how he managed to deceive everyone here to bring
gadgets that recorded our meeting and send the same to Western Embassies
who have confirmed that the audio recording was handed over to them by
Edmund Kudzayi.

There is more.

On 19 August 2017 it emerged that Kudzayi was the one behind the
presentation made by Professor Moyo in our last Politburo meeting.

I will quote from a story that was published by Newsday.

Kudzayi caused the politburo video titled Mnangagwa Succession Plot Expose
by Jonathan Moyo – Zanu PF Politburo Meeting, to be pulled down from
social media site YouTube over alleged copyright infringement.

The video which was put up by 1stTV was pulled down after Kudzayi through
his Digital Assets (Private)) Limited claimed it had property rights over
the production.

“Your video has been taken down. A claimant sent us a legal notice about
their copyrighted content in your video. As a result, your video has been
removed from YouTube,” part of a notice on YouTube read.

Equally astounding are the lies being created with regards to my

I can tell you with certainty that he is one who authored the report he
presented to you over what he claimed happened in Masvingo during the late
Shuvai Mahofa’s funeral.

What we now have is a situation where we have been compromised by
Professor Moyo who trades sensitive information to hostile Governments.

I want to refresh your memories and remind you that we grappled with the
Baba Jukwa issue and not surprisingly, the same people accused of being
behind that project are the same people whom I can tell you not only
recorded the Politburo meeting but gave it to Western Governments.

The question that I ask is; what else has been recorded and given to our

When we do planning are we sure that our enemies are not ahead of us?

Professor Moyo I challenge you to confirm or deny that you recorded us and
gave information to Western Embassies.

Your Excellency, I put it to you that even American Ambassador Harry
Thomas, and his colleagues can confirm what I have just said.

Secondly, after Professor Moyo refused to give me a copy of his
presentation, we now find in the same media which he claimed I had

Again I ask, who leaked that presentation to the media?

Let me get deeper with my presentation.

Your Excellency, I will give an overview of Professor Moyo’s successionist
project in which characters like Dr Gideon Gono, Dr Ibbo Mandaza, Cde
Saviour Kasukuwere to mention but a few are actively participating while
using my name as convenience to mask their plot.

Although the above mentioned trio have one thing in common, that is
destroying ZANU PF and tarnishing my image, their destinies are separate
as they all use the succession issue to achieve their objective.

Professor Moyo has been luring Dr Gono, telling him that they will make
him the country’s next President and I can tell you that there was a
picture which circulated in the media where Professor Moyo was standing
together with former advisor to Morgan Tsvangirai, Dr Alex Magaisa and Cde
Kasukuwere at The Plot Restaurant.

Dr Gono was also present but he refused to be part of the picture crew,
and this has been confirmed by Dr Alex Magaisa as well as his female
companion who is well known to Professor Moyo and who happened to have
accompanied him for coffee at that restaurant.

In return of the proposed Dr Gono presidential bid, Professor Moyo then
pressured Dr Gono to use his influence as a shareholder in Associated
Newspapers of Zimbabwe (ANZ) and push Daily News Editor Hama Saburi to
give the G40 Project positive coverage.

Added to that, on June 1 2017, Professor Moyo here made a presentation at
SAPES Trust, a haven for regime change programmes where he made
insinuations to the effect that Dr Sydney Sekeremayi was fit to succeed

Two issues that emerge here are;

* By embarking on that route, Professor Moyo was openly talking about
succession which issue you have said Your Excellency is not debatable.

He is yet to be censured for dabbling in that issue.

* By going to SAPES whose owner Dr Mandaza has been since late last year
pushing for a National Transitional Authority (NTA), it effectively
points towards a sinister joining of like minds between Professor Moyo
and Dr Mandaza.

The idea then is to talk about succession outside the Party domain and
then smuggle it in as is happening now.

This brings us to the question, who are the real successionists in ZANU

The real successionist is Professor Moyo who is ably supported by Vice
President Mphoko and Cde Kasukuwere here.

I ask VP Mphoko if he has ever given His Excellency minutes of the
numerous meeting they hold at Number 4 Coffee Road?

Their Aides can confirm spending loads of time waiting for these men to
finish their meetings which in most cases run into wee hours of the night.

Ironically they accuse me of holding clandestinely holding meetings and
embarking on what they have christened a `whisper campaign’ without
providing any evidence to back their spurious allegations.

To demonstrate that these men are vehemently opposed to your Presidency
Your Excellency, these men spearheaded the negation of One Centre of Power
principle which was a direct challenge to your leadership.

It is a matter of public record that it was Cde Dickson Mafios and Cde
Kasukuwere who pushed for the whittling of your powers saying you should
be elected at Congress.

On January 9 2017 Cde Kasukuwere called for a Commissariat Management
Meeting here at the Party Headquarters, and members present at that
meeting can testify that Cde Kasukuwere here publicly said the One Centre
of Power Principle was undemocratic.

He vowed to fight it.

And he fought it.

To buttress his exasperation with the One Centre of Power Principle, Cde
Kasukuwere personally instructed his media henchmen, Everson Mushava of
Newsday and Fungai Kwaramba of the Daily News respectively to write
stories attacking the Principle as well my person.

I shall deal with the Mushava and Kwaramba issue in detail in this

The following day Newsday had this headline, `G40 hunts VP, Team Lacoste’
while the Daily News ran a story under the headline `ZANU PF Revolts
against Mngangagwa’.

This is why we must look closely at Dr Mandaza’s NTA project.

The NTA project being spearheaded by Dr Mandaza and ably supported by
Professor Moyo and Cde Kasukuwere is the new regime change project where a
transitional government is forced on to the people of Zimbabwe outside
electoral processes.

These people have been selling the narrative that there is a leadership
vacuum in Zimbabwe, citing your age and alleged incapacity to handle state
affairs as reasons for urgent need to a so-called transitional government.

A pointer is the SAPES Trust Convention held from June 29-30 2017 here in
Harare at Rainbow Towers under the theme Zimbabwe in Transition; Reform
and Reconstruction.

How can a SAPES Trust that gave Professor Moyo a platform to talk about
succession, do any good to the country?

How can a Zimbabwe with an able leadership as yours be said to be in

Professor Moyo has been consistent in his quest for succession before he
joined ZANU PF and now when he is a member of the Party where he hobnobs
with the likes of SAPES Trust and Chatham House.

Is it not then clear who a successionist is?

Why talk about transition and succession when we still have an able leader
who has been endorsed by the Party?

This then takes me to the current problems being created through
unmitigated and relentless lies by Professor Moyo and Cde Kasukuwere who
are in fact successionists professing fake love for you.

History which Professor Moyo is trying to rewrite is the best teacher in
this regard.

ZANU PF’s history is replete with cases of members who have sought to
divide the Party but not since the entrance in 2000 of Professor Moyo has
the Party been confronted with the many threats to its survival as is the
case now.

Your Excellency and fellow Politburo members, the Party today is faced
with the case of two divisive individuals, Professor Moyo and Cde
Kasukuwere whose insatiable quest for power is a matter of public record.

The two gentlemen in question have been relentless in their feverish
pursuit for power as seen by previous and current actions which have rode
on a divisive propaganda project whose thrust is to institute what they
believe is regime evolution.

I have seen in the media stories saying I would bring past articles that
were authored by Professor Moyo in order to prove my innocence.

You were very correct in those stories you fed to the media, but what you
forgot to mention to those people is that shiri ine muriro wayo haiuregi.

You have been consistent in your pursuit for succession and I have been
consistent in defending this man from your unrestrained successionist

Where your past articles spoke comprehensively about succession, your
actions today are even more pronounced about this stern push for the same

Your SAPES Trust presentation is just but one of the many instances where
your past articles prove today that your stance as seen by your past
writings now gallantly manifests in the scary route you have taken today.

Where consistency in the succession issue is the trademark of your
politics, defending President Robert Mugabe is the underlying factor of my

So yes I have brought those articles to prove your consistency in your
pursuit for succession.

I am now proving how you intend to achieve this succession issue that you
hold dearly in your heart.

In order to achieve this Your Excellency and fellow Politburo members,
these gentlemen have been working in cahoots with opposition formations
particularly the MDC-T and using my name as a decoy to hide their sinister

They have also been using various strategies which I will unravel as I go
further with my presentation.

I will start with Professor Moyo.

It is clear from his utterances before he joined ZANU PF that Professor
Moyo has harboured an agenda of destroying the Party whether from within
(Statements which have been attributed to him) or otherwise.

These statements which have haunted his entire his career as a ZANU PF
member are the same he sought to retract while officiating at the Zimbabwe
National Editors’ Forum (ZINEF) Annual General meeting on January 23 2015
but in the process exposing a more brutal analogy to his project.

During the ZINEF meeting, Moyo claimed that he had merely said ZANU PF
must be `reformed’ from within.

I will quote him.

Now, if your uneducated mind translates reform as destruction, to hell
with you. That is not my problem and I want to repeat that very statement
that the best way to reform ZANU PF is from within, come and join us.

Cde President and fellow Politburo members, I have been trying to
understand how a Party solid as ZANU PF can at any given time be said to
be in need of reform or be said to have been reformed.

Perhaps Moyo can help me and others understand the import of that loaded

In my view his article ZANU PF: An Introspection (Sunday Mail, August 7
2011) where he identified and I quote `at least seven current and critical
national questions’ lays bare some critical insights into his so-called
reform agenda.

In that article Moyo says `some comrades in the nationalist movement in
general and in ZANU PF in particular seem to be afraid of change.’

What change and who are `some’ of these Comrades that seem to be afraid of
change I ask?

Change from what to what if I may add.

Which brings me back to my earlier location of Professor Moyo and Cde
Kasukuwere’s links with the opposition MDC-T.

Together they have formed an alliance with their collaborators within the
MDC-T and their thrust as the progressive elements they say they are is to
remove the older generation surrounding you through means outside normal

Nelson Chamisa confided with one of his friends that their plan is to
among other things cause the purge of the Party’s senior leadership, one
by one in order to create a free pathway for them to power.

In Chamisa’s own words `we need to deal with His Excellency in order to
determine the future of ZANU PF’.

While Professor Moyo has in recent times sought to attack my person,
office both in the Party and in Government through accusing me of
embarking on what he calls State Capture, it is him who is on the contrary
doing exactly that which he is accusing me of.

Evidence of his nefarious agenda is abundant and today I stand here to
expose him for who he really is and what he been planning to do.

I will make reference to his articles, statements, actions and other
material that has been written elsewhere to buttress my point.

In the same vein, I will bring to your attention the numerous incidences
that he has confirmed that he is indeed working to destroy ZANU PF whether
from within or from the outside.

For instance, an article in The Telegraph by Paul Lord in Harare 12:08AM
GMT 06 Mar 2005 when Moyo was planning to form what he called the `Third
Force’ is a case in reference.

The article runs thus, and I quote;

As recently as 1999, Mr Moyo was writing articles condemning the
president. “His uncanny propensity to shoot himself in the foot has become
a national problem which needs urgent containment,” Mr Moyo wrote in one
newspaper. “Does the president not realise that when he belittles
universal issues such as basic human rights, he loses the moral
high-ground to his critics?” The question is has the Third Force Project

been abandoned?

My answer is a resounding no.

The material is just too many to unravel one by one but I refer you also
to the these two articles; Mugabe must go now: Jonathan Moyo published on
March 7 2011 and Mugabe can lt stomach defeat published on April 11 2008.

I will further illustrate in this presentation that it is this cabal that
initiated the succession debate in the media in their feverish pursuit of
their diabolical plan to eliminate by all means possible their perceived

Far from supporting you Your Excellency and the Party, they have feigned
loyalty by using your name to cause chaos, confusion and anarchy within
the Party and in the country as a whole.

Here is a simple example of how they have transported their anarchist
tendencies to key institutions in the country.

In a discussion with a senior member of the Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC)
on July 5 2017, Dr Daniel Shumba one of their allies revealed the
Professor Moyo and Cde Kasukuwere power grab plan.

Dr Shumba openly bragged to the ZPC official that they are supporting you
for their own convenience.

This is what Dr Shumba said;

We are not stupid to support a 94-year o/d to contest the Presidential

Your Excellency I thought the Party made a decision to support your
candidature in order for you to serve the people.

In light of the above, it is also important to trace Professor Moyo’s
history in so far as his resentment of our beloved Party and your
Presidency is concerned.

In order to do that, let me first take stock of his time at the University
of Zimbabwe where President Robert Mugabe and ZANU PF were subjected to a
torrent of diatribes by Professor Moyo.

It is an inescapable reality that Professor Moyo has been an ardent critic
of you Your Excellency when he was at the University of Zimbabwe and

But that he temporarily stopped his acerbic vitriol when he joined the
Constitutional Commission in 2000 and subsequently Government cannot in
any way exonerate him from his past misdemeanours.

This is because his past, present and even future activities as a sworn
President Mugabe and ZANU PF critic supplies an embarrassment of riches
which helps us understand the regime change agenda project especially in
the context of Party infiltration and insurgency that he has been

While it is common knowledge that Moyo has been against your leadership in
particular and ZANU PF in general, let me refresh your memories by
highlighting that he has feverishly sought to destroy the liberation
struggle history by constantly attacking stalwarts of the struggle in the
recent past.

Many of you will remember his embarrassing public spats with former Vice
Presidents, Joseph Msika and John Landa Nkomo and Nathan Shamuyarira,
among many others.

Your Excellency, these three great men are veterans of the struggle and it
is not surprising today that we sit here again, seized with the same
matter of the same Jonathan Moyo whose blatant disregard of that critical
sector of our history is known to all of us.

From the above it is important for all of us to note that I am the third
Vice President he has engaged in a fight with.

That alone tells a lot about his disdain for the country’s leadership.

I am Your Excellency therefore compelled to come to the conclusion that in
Jonathan Moyo we have a man who is frantically trying to create a new
narrative for the country through his resentment for War Veterans and the
Party itself.

In Jonathan Moyo we have a man who has tried unsuccessfully to erase from
our and people’s memories the history of liberation struggle which has
been the glue that has bound us together.

It is imperative for you to note that in November 2012, the United States
Embassy Public Affairs Section held a presentation where a collection of
articles authored by former American Ambassador to Harare Charles Ray were
translated to Shona.

Titled `Kwaunoenda Ndiko Kwakanyanya Kukosha Kudarika Kwaunobva’ the
collection was aimed at rubbishing the country war of liberation among
other issues.

Perhaps this where the resentment of Jonathan Moyo’s hatred of our history
of the struggle comes from given his not so hidden links with the

And below is an article published by Mail and Guardian which brings to the
fore the point I am making about his fights which should be seen in the
light of his so-called reform agenda and his attempt to rubbish the
liberation struggle.

Moyo burns his fingers

Dumisani Muleva 11 Jun 2004 00:00

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe’s propaganda chief Jonathan Moyo was
stopped in his tracks by the old guard of the ruling Zanu-PF when he tried
to elbow his way into the top echelons of political power.

Their move came as Moyo began openly to make a power play ahead of the
party’s critical congress scheduled for December. The congress comes at a
time when Mugabe has indicated he will step down as president of Zimbabwe
when his present term expires.

Moyo has of late been making open attempts to build a power base for
himself in his rural home in Zimbabwe’s Matabeleland North province.

In the process he has found himself in conflict with powerful rivals
within the party.

Moyo recently clashed with Zimbabwean Vice-President Joseph Msika over the
government’s seizure of a farm, Kondozi. Although Moyo managed to hold on
to the farm, Msika warned that he would not be defeated by “little immoral

The high-profile clash, which was widely interpreted as evidence of a
scramble for power, has deepened the divisions within the faction-ridden

Moyo threw fuel on the fire three weeks ago when he launched a thinly
veiled attack on Zanu-PF spokesman Nathan Shamuyarira.

In the state-owned daily The Herald Moyo criticised Mugabe’s interview
with British Sky News.

He said those who still believed that it was better to promote Zimbabwe’s
interests through the “colonial and imperialist” media houses rather than
on the “national media” were “outdated”.

This was seen as a broadside against Shamuyarira, who had facilitated the
interview without Moyo’s approval.

In his outburst, Moyo also suggested that Mugabe had wasted time answering
questions from “British intelligence operatives masquerading as
journalists” that were either “very crude or very stupid”. This was seen
as an unwitting attack on Mugabe, and it further infuriated Zanu-PF

Shamuyarira, the president’s confidant and a former journalist, apparently
thinks that if he is allowed to speak to the global media, Mugabe could be
useful in fighting negative publicity about Zimbabwe.

By contrast, Moyo seems to think that exposing Mugabe to long interviews
with “hostile” media organisations can only worsen the situation,
especially at a time when the president seems to be losing his grasp on
many issues.

As shown over the past three years, Moyo’s strategy has been to ring-fence
Mugabe and control the free flow of information.

Following hard on the heels of the government’s enforcement of its
repressive media laws, which resulted in the banning of the Daily News and
other papers in January, new measures are planned to gag Internet and
email communication, The government is targeting Internet service
providers, who could soon be forced to divulge the source of any e-mail
deemed objectionable, unauthorised or obscene.

The new regulations mean that Internet service providers will have to sign
a contract agreeing to cooperate with the authorities in tracing the
sources of “offensive” e-mails.

It forbids the service providers to undertake any “anti-national
activities”. But most of the Internet firms have vowed to resist the
official censorship drive.

The clash between Moyo and Shamuyarira sparked a series of events that
appears to have led to Moyo’s isolation.

It is understood that the attack on Shamuyarira forced Zanu-PF chairperson
John Nkomo to complain in his weekly column in the party newspaper
mouthpiece, The Voice, of lack of discipline and insubordination. Moyo was
seen as the target.

Matters came to a head last week when Nkomo was openly slammed in The
Herald by war veterans over the current tussles over land and farms. War
veteran leader Joseph Chinotimba attacked Nkomo over the issue.

Angered by the rising trend of attacks on senior party officials, Zanu-PF
bigwigs closed ranks and confronted Moyo during the politburo meeting.

Insiders say Shamuyarira tabled the issue before luminaries such as Msika,
while retired General Solomon Mujuru – widely seen as the Zanu-PF
kingmaker – led the assault on Moyo and other “undisciplined cadres”.

Zanu-PF sources say the attack in the politburo has left Moyo weakened and

After the politburo meeting, Nkomo wrote another column that insisted that
“party members need to respect hierarchy”

Moyo’s situation was worsened by Mugabe’s statement, last week, that party
officials who have been unprocedurally nominated as Zanu-PF candidates for
next year’s general election will be rejected,

Moyo is one of those. His supporters in Matabeleland North recently
claimed he had been nominated by “consensus” in a move seen as an attempt
to help him avoid internal primary elections. Zanu-PF big shots are said
to be plotting to block Moyo in the primaries to ensure that he remains a
powerless appointed MP.

However, observers say that, despite the setbacks, Moyo is not finished
yet, as Mugabe still needs his services as a spin doctor.

Curiously, the author of the above quoted article Dumisani Muleya is now
Jonathan Moyo’s staunch ally!

Let me also make references to some damning statements he has made about
you so that you get an appreciation of the gravity of the issues I have
raised here.

“We are young, dynamic society led by an old stagnant clique”-Professor
Jonathan Moyo

…he is without compassions {Mugabe} maybe because he is now too old, too
tired and not in the best of health”-Jonathan Moyo

Your Excellency I get befuddled when personalities like Jonathan Moyo then
come to us pretending to love you more than anyone else who has been with
you through thick and thin.

I call it fake affection for you and for the Party.

Pure grandstanding!

You will also recall how difficult things were for the Party when we had
our annual gathering in 2007 and the role that I played in bringing order
and to push for your endorsement.

This is what Jonathan Moyo wrote in 2007 about you participating in any
national election:

“The simple truth is that Mugabe has no national reason to seek
re-election, and that ZANU PF is being particularly irresponsible by
allowing him to do that in this disgraceful manner.”

When you Your Excellency spoke to thank the people that had endorsed you
at the 2007 congress, Jonathan Moyo accused you of putting up what he
described as `pathetic performance’.

He also added that fair-minded Zimbabweans in and outside ZANU PF who had
or still have a soft spot for him for one reason or another did not know
whether to laugh or cry, a statement taken from Dambudzo Marechera’s House
of Hunger.

He is the same Jonathan Moyo who has accused you of speaking in a cranky
voice, uninspiring and representing an unhappy past.

By making the gory insinuation that you represent what he believes is an
unhappy past, Jonathan Moyo is in fact confirming what we are seeing today
which is his resentment of veterans of the struggle, ZANU PF and even
Command Agriculture Programme from which he has made disparaging remarks.

It is ironic that his current criticism of Government programmes is in
tandem with his past attacks on your person and ZANU PF.

I am still grappling with evidence of where and when he changed his stance
on you and the Party given his unabated and unrestrained attacks on your

Government’s initiatives.

I have given you this brief background so that you can have an
appreciation of the fact that his current fights with war veterans and
anything that ZANU PF does for the people did not start in 2014 as he is
frantically trying to present to you and to the country as a whole.

He has since time immemorial been against you our number One war veteran,
he has been against past Vice Presidents and now he is against current war
veterans but in his wisdom or lack of it he accuses me of using war
veterans to turn against you when he is the one who has been doing the
same with reckless abandon!

It is paramount that we look at his current fight with anyone who loves
you in order for him to create a wedge between us loyalists and him a

We should also be aware that the West’s strategy to destroy ZANU PF
revolves around a clearly laid out strategy by the name of Operation
Shumba [Annexure 1] and Jonathan Moyo has been doing just that-picking up
a fight with anyone and everyone who truly loves you and our Party ZANU

Since Professor Moyo joined mainstream politics in 2000, he has always
viewed and portrayed his opinion as the national interest when the
opposite is true.

As I get deeper with my presentation, it is imperative that we all pay
attention to his use, should I say abuse of media practitioners in his
quest to undermine your authority.

I will present my case thus;

Militia Groups

Not only has Professor Moyo and Cde Kasukuwere created parallel
structures, they have gone on to form shadowy groups of thugs who unleash
violence with a view to not only tarnish my person but to further their
nefarious agenda.

Soon after a Central Committee meeting held here on June 9 2016, Vice
President Mphoko, Cde Kasukuwere together with Shadreck Mashayamombe met
the then expelled but now Party member Jim Kunaka at the Rainbow Towers

At that meeting, Cde Kasukuwere tasked l<unaka to recruit youths from
Joice Mujuru’s Zimbabwe People First party so that the youths would embark
on a terror campaign that would then be attributed to my person.

In turn, Cde Kasukuwere would facilitate Kunaka’s readmission into the
Party and this happened with no hurdles.

Kunaka was also promised a residential stand in Chishawasha and was given
US$4 000 in cash.

To refresh Cde Kasukuwere’s memory, Kunaka in turn requested you to
facilitate for his acquisition of land opposite the Coca Cola Plant along
Chitungwiza Road.

Kunaka had claimed that he had investors from the United Arab Emirates.

Children of Zimbabwe War Veterans Association (COZWA)-

As part of Cde Kasukuwere’s initiative to gain unmitigated control of the
Party, he created COZWA, an organisation headed by one Munyaradzi Shoko
whose acerbic tongue has left its acid on me and many others including the
First Lady Amai Dr Grace Mugabe.

COZWA was and is a brazen attempt by Cde Kasukuwere and coterie to rival
another group, the Children of Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans
Association (CZNLWVA) which had been formed earlier on but never Caused
the problems we see today.

As I have said, COZWA’s primary objective was to attack my person, spread
malicious propaganda against me and to advance Cde Kasukuwere’s interests.

Interestingly, very few if any of COZWA’s membership are sons and
daughters of war veterans.

This then raises questions about its intent and purpose but as I have
indicated, the objective of COZWA has been clear.

Shoko’s background lays bare his group’s his sinister agenda.

He claims his father died during the struggle but he was born years after

Perhaps he is another Jesus!


The puzzle about the purpose of COZWA goes even deeper.

Here with me is a copy of a letter dated April 30 2017 which was authored
and signed by Dr Chombo our Secretary for Administration.

The letter affirms COZWA as a duly recognised ZANU PF affiliate.

Does the Party Constitution empower the Secretary for Administration with
powers to decide which pressure group should be recognised as Party

By endorsing COZWA’s affiliate status, does the Party or the Secretary of
Administration associate with the organisation’s disruptive agenda?

It should be noted also that COZWA prides itself in portraying the First
Lady as sponsoring violence amongst the country’s citizens but at the same
time claiming to be rallying behind Your Excellency


Your Excellency and fellow Politburo members, you might be interested to
know that COZWA runs a social media Whatsapp group named COHZWA where as
of July 26 2017 had 256 youths from across the country as participants.

A common feature of the group members is that the majority of them are Cde
Kasukuwere’s associates and general talk is the promotion of the capture
agenda which is disguised as support for you Your Excellency.

Shoko himself confirmed on July 21 2017 about the objective and source of
support and funding through a statement in which he apologised for
bringing the name of the First Family into disrepute.

He disclosed that COZWA’s activities were being coordinated and directed
by Cdes Kasukuwere and Mandi Chimene with Dr Daniel Shumba and Cde
Mashayamombe as the financiers.

Shoko himself has also confided to Party members that he was being
instructed by Cde Kasukuwere to commit acts of violence using my name.

This is what Shoko said in a widely circulated Whatsapp message;

Chipanga your days are Numbered

I hv bin defending Amai Mugabe vachirwiswa neLacoste nhasi
maakundinyadzisa pamberi pevanhu handei tione.

So it means to support the family is an offence, why Amai didn’t support
me instead she blasted me in day light.

But Amai Mugabe musakanganwe kuti makanga musisadiwa dai pasina ini,

Munyaradzi Alexio Shoko

Professor Moyo and Cde Kasukuwere here can confirm that soon after the
Lupane Youth Interface Rally on July 21 2017 that they held a meeting at
Cde Kasukuwere’s residence where they deliberated on several strategies
with regards to their association with COZWA.

That meeting ended around 4 am on July 22 2017.

One of the strategies was to lie that I bought Cde Kudzanayi Chipanga a
car and a house and that I had recruited him [Cde Chipanga] to turn
against the First Family.

Shoko himself confirmed as much in a story that was published on the front
page of the Daily News on July 25 2017 under the heading Mugabe youth
strategy backfires.

If Cde Patrick Zhuwao is to be honest with you, he will confirm that he
attended the meeting in question.

Blue Ocean Document Question

As part of Professor Moyo and Cde Kasukuwere’s to alienate war veterans
from the Party and from you Your Excellency, the duo have been creating
documents purportedly written by war veterans under my instruction to
create the impression that I am committing treason.

One such document is the so-called Blue Ocean Strategy which Professor
Moyo and even Vice President Mphoko have repeatedly attributed its
authorship to war veterans and me.

The fact of the matter Your Excellency is that it is their work, written
by their own.

Cde Kasukuwere knows this face very well.

This is COZWA member Chamunorwa Shumbahuye and Cde Kasukuwere knows that
this man is the author of the Blue Ocean document, but our Political
Commissar here conveniently wants everyone to believe that this paper is
the work of the so-called Lacoste faction.


Central to Moyo’s efforts to destroy ZANU PF from within has been his
deliberate efforts to capture the media for his own ends.

Unbeknown to many of you here, Moyo’s well calculated media onslaught has
not started now as I shall illustrate.

Soon after being appointed as minister of Information, he established the
Information Media Panel of Inquiry (IMPI), which was basically a
Government funded vehicle to endear himself with the media, which he had
crossed paths with during his previous stint as Minister of Information,
in order to conduct his so called reform agenda in ZANU PF.

I was surprised the other day when he accused me of capturing the state

Is it not a coincidence that the same personnel which he used to abuse me
when he was the Minister for Information, Publicity and Broadcasting
Services are the very people he now accuses me of capturing.

Your Excellency, those boys and girls have a story to tell.

If we are not careful, we will wake up one day with no ZANU PF to talk of.

Unfortunate as it is I will have the indulgence to mention names here
because that is what he is doing.

The two main agents Moyo has been using in his media propaganda are Edmund
Kudzayi and Mduduzi Mathuthu.

The only relationship that exists among the three is their mutual hatred

For the record, the two were the primary compilers of the presentation
that was made the other day, here in Harare and at Holiday Inn Hotel,

This is, however, besides the point.

But my question is, are we to believe that these three gentleman, whose
life long commitment to the destruction of ZANU PF and pure hatred for the
First Family, have become the party’s saviours.

Edmund Kudzayi

For those who were working in the security ministries in the run-up and
after the 2013 harmonised elections you know Edmund Kudzayi very well.

The country’s security agencies proved that he was the Baba Jukwa, whose
cyber terrorist activities against ZANU PF were well documented.

It is a fact that his prosecution hit a dead wall after the United States
Department of Homeland Security refused access to vital information to the
team that was sent to Washington led by Assistant Commissioner Crispen

The Americans knew that such information would have exposed Moyo for what
he is, Baba Jukwa.

It is a fact that the same Edmund Kudzayi had shown his dislike of ZANU PF
and the First Family for a long time.

7 August 2008, he described the President as a tyrant.

To quote him, he said that “They say Mugabe is a dictator, yes he is.

Mugabe commits gross human rights abuses, yes he does. Mugabe stole the
election, yes he did. He has presided over an economic collapse, yes he
has. The man is indeed a tyrant I am ardently opposed to Mugabe and his
cronies. What I will not do though is to allow my hatred to allow me to
believe western propaganda. That Mugabe is a dictator is beyond question
so I won’t waste my time trying to prove that.

What concerns me though is the west’s hypocritical statements and double

They say Mugabe is a dictator, yes he is. Mugabe commits gross human
riqhts abuses, yes he does. Mugabe stole the election, yes he did. He has
presided over an economic collapse, yes he has. The man is indeed a

But any open minded analyst is tempted to ask a most provocative question?

Are these western governments opposed to these vile acts against democracy
or are they simply using these as a scapegoat to achieve their own ends.

Having eliminated democracy and fair elections lets go on to Human rights.

As I said, Mugabe indeed is guilty of gross human rights abuses. In many
parts of China Christians and political dissidents suffer horrendous abuse
at the hands of state security agents.

Genitals are crushed and teeth are pulled out, if you manage to escape
with a severe beating you belong to the group of the lucky one. Egypt is
another example of countries were government find clandestine means of
silencing critics. Media freedom in Egypt? I don’t think so. How about the
thousands of civilian Palestinians who have been maimed and killed at the
hands of the Israeli army. Sorry, those lives are expendable. Surely
Britain should make a statement on all these serious cases of disregard
for human rights.

Okay maybe human rights aren’t so important. What else is Mugabe guilty
of? Presiding over an economic collapse? Well Mugabe is not the first. The
west actively supported Mobuto whilst he plundered Zaire and brought the
country to its knees. I suppose those diamonds were shining so brightly
that most western diplomats were blinded to the gross abuses of a regime
they actively aided. They should have hauled him before the Security

Okay so I’ve made it clear that the West is not really concerned with
human rights, democracy or economic prosperity in Africa. So why have they
been so irked by this particular dictator?

You would have to be incredibly naive or plain simple stupid not to
realise that the main contention is on Mugabe’s audacity in terms of
taking land from the whites. Yes I know the land was not given to the
people but rather his cronies but all the same he took the land. It had
never been heard of, a Negroe standing up to a white man. It had to get
personal, it is now personal. The west’s cover of human rights is absolute

He is the same Edmund Kudzayi, who in 2010, wrote a story that was posted
on the website which he ran, the African Aristocrat, alleging that, Bona,
the presidents only daughter had been gang-raped by a group of Tanzanian

Although the website, the African Aristocrat has now been pulled down, his
footprints in his previous life are still visible in cyberspace.

Despite not having a journalism qualification, the same Kudzayi was
rewarded for his exploits by Moyo by being appointed as the editor of The
Sunday Mail to push his agenda of destroying ZANU

Mduduzi Mathuthu

Who penned the article titled: Mugabe’s secret craving to live forever:
Devastating investigation shows Mugabe wants to rule
forever by keeping a young image. The article partly reads:

PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe turns 80 next year but there is nothing that
distinguishes him from a 12-year old boy, except for his physical stature.

He is a man in denial who has married a woman 35 years his junior and
still claims to be an “old young man.

But there is something more disturbing about Mugabe’s attempts to halt
time. At his age, he should have at least a patch of gray hair, just like
his nationalist colleagues from the African struggle against colonialism
in the middle of the last century – Nelson Mandela, the late Walter
Sisulu, Sam Nujoma and others.

But Mugabe has sought to defy nature by permanently keeping the barber
busy with constant dyeing of his hair to look younger. He has also found
love at a very late age with his former secretary, Grace Marufu, and had
his last child in the last decade.

With the aid of psychiatrists and hairdressers, a
investigation this week sought to unravel the mind of Mugabe gd establish
the source of his desire to create and keep a young image. We found a man
who is locked in a fear of death and craves to rule forever.

“Indeed, that first sign of gray can be upsetting, Thomson Pritchard a
practising psychiatrist in South Wales said. “A coarse, unruly strand that
seems to have its own mind, it usually appears around one’s early 30s. The
anxiety comes not from what it is, but what it represents – the
inevitable. `I

With his rule seemingly under threat from the opposition amid converging
international contempt for his administration, Pritchard said it was
important for Mugabe to maintain that image. He said it mitigates against
the full-blown perceptions of his critics who could easily seize on his
greying hair to caricature him as a man determined to die in power.

And true to the statement, Mugabe is today a man ridiculed even by people
whose knowledge of politics is as scarce as a trace of grey in his hair.

There is no obvious link here but the sheer fact that Mugabe is a man on
the verge of the end of his political career still walking around with
dark hair makes him a target for the satirists and political opponents.

Moyo has also enlisted the services of a core group of journalists in the
private media, who are doing his hatchet job.

Is it a coincidence that in a country with more than 200 journalists, the
Mnangagwa’s alleged sucessionist tendencies are mainly written by three
journalists from three media houses, with all the three associated
Professor Moyo?

An analysis of the media articles on the so-called succession reveals some
interesting trends.

The majority of these articles are written by known Moyo acolytes, namely;
Xolisani Ncube and Everson Mushava from the Newsday, as well as Fungai
Kwaramba of the Daily News.

Since when has the private media become ZANU PF’s saviour.

Some of the stories the trio have exclusively written include the

Unmasking Saviour Kasukuwere

Your Excellency and fellow Politburo members, a lot of things that many of
you are not aware of are happening behind the scenes but as I have done
before I will commit to defending the Party and the country from foreign

Cde Kasukuwere purports to be rallying behind you but behind that facade
is a sinister objective designed to return the country to our enemies.

I can tell you here and now that Cde Kasukuwere is an active participant
in the regime change agenda project.

Here is why.

There is a person called Carl Skau and this person is a former Charge D’
Affairs at the European Union Delegation to Zimbabwe.

His current designation is Alternate Representative of Sweden to the
United Nation.

Those in the security cluster know that this gentleman works with the
United States and the British on a regime change project code named

He has facilitated visits of opposition figures like Joice Mujuru,
Thokozani Khupe, Douglas Mwonzora as well as Dr Mandaza to Sweden in the
past year alone.

Behind his unbridled ambition for power is, among other western agent,
Skau and together with Professor Moyo they are working towards
neutralising ZANU

Carl Skau is friends with Cde Kasukuwere and they are working together in
the anti-Zimbabwe project they have been planning over the years.

My question therefore is why hasn’t Cde Kasukuwere mentioned Skau to you
Your Excellency or to the party if the relationship with this Swedish
national is constructive?

Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC)

Through their deliberate ignorance of statecraft which is without,
informed by their fear of exposure of their dirty deeds, Professor Moyo
and Cde Kasukuwere have often accused me of what they say is capture of
State institutions specifically ZACC for political expediency.

Maybe one day they will specifically indicate who specifically was
captured, but let me set the record straight.

As I mentioned in the last Politburo, the appointing authority of all
Commissions is you Your Excellency not me as insinuated by Professor Moyo.

The pool of names to be considered for appointment is considered and dealt
by Parliament, so where do I come in their appointment?

In fact it is a matter of public record that prior to the appointment of
the ZACC Commission, Cde Kasukuwere here approached anyone who cared to
listen, including the First Family claiming that I was lobbying for my
so-called cronies to be appointed as Commissioners.

The names that Professor Moyo and Cde Kasukuwere constantly mentioned were
those of Farai Mashonganyika, now Mrs Chinyani and Goodson Nguni.

How the duo came to be called my cronies only Professor Moyo and Cde
Kasukuwere know.

After they failed the block the appointments, Professor Moyo, in his
futile bid to stop the investigation into his alleged misuse of funds at
ZIMDEF then tried to play the tribal card, accusing me of being tribal.

Who exactly was appointed on tribal grounds if I may want to ask?

In shona they say kuvhunduka chati kwata hunge une katurika? Why is it
that ZACC of all the Commissions, has attracted their most attention? It
is common cause that his tirade against ZACC is because of the
Commission’s investigation of the ZIMDEF issue.

In his small mind, everyone else except himself must be investigated forĀ  corruption.

Professor Moyo has used very opportunity to tell all and sundry that he is
clean and the ZACC investigation of ZIMDEF is a witch hunt.

If that is the case, why would you go to all lengths to ensure that ZACC
does not conclude its case, including attempts at bribing the very ZACC
Commissioners who you claim are my allies?

If there was no case to be answered, why is it that there was an offer to
Nguni to drop Moyo’s case in return for money and protection?

The National Commissar here, on January 4 2017, invited Nguni for lunch at
Paula’s Restaurant at corner Samora Machel Avenue and Glenara Road.

Nguni was brought to the venue of the meeting by Minister Makhosini
Hlongwane who was acting on the instructions of Kasukuwere here.

I challenge Cde Kasukuwere to confirm that he offered Nguni US$20 000
which was dangled by one your colleagues at the meeting, including real
estate in Borrowdale.

Why go to such lengths if your hands are clean.

You also offered him `protection’ claiming that Mnangagwa would not
provide him the same.

Protection from what? If this is not corruption and institution capture of
the highest order then the word might have changed meaning.

Let us all remember here that Professor Moyo himself admitted on October 9
2016 that he had indeed stolen ZIMDEF money.

I will quote what he said on Twitter

You can say what you want but I would be a Robin Hood than a cruel
tribalist, murderer & UN identified cross border thief

One of your media runners, Xolisani Ncube, was paid US$9000 from ZIMDEF,
maybe you know better what the money was for.

Xolisani has been everywhere, including visiting some of the
Commissioner’s rural homes asking their relatives to plead on his behalf.

All this for being done by people proclaiming innocence?

In the same vein, I will draw your attention to an article published in
Newsday on August 1 2017 in which ZACC investigators were quoted as saying
they were fed up with Vice President Mphoko’s continued interference into
their operations.

I will quote the Newsday report in part.

Zacc chairperson Job Whabira yesterday told members of the Parliamentary
Portfolio Committee on Defence that the biggest culprit in interfering
with their operations was Mphoko.

Whabira told the Ronald Muderedzwa-led committee that there had been
political interference in the commission’s work.

“Political interference by Mphoko is among some of those elements that
impinge upon the independence of the commission, but these will be
resisted, as we forge ahead because the Constitution gives us power to
complete investigations without fear or favour,” he said.

“On VP Mphoko’s issue, what happened is that we (Zacc) took the issue to
the President through the chief secretary to the Cabinet, Misheck Sibanda,
so that they take action on the interference.”

Whabira said he had approached Mphoko to discuss the issue of his
interference in Zacc investigations.

Now some time ago the same allegation was levelled against me and I ask
here who has captured ZACC?

Collaborating with the MDC-T to destroy ZANU PF from within

During our last Politburo meeting, Professor Moyo claimed, without
substantiating his claims with facts that I was working with the MDC-T to
destroy ZANU PF.

The opposite is true.

Your Excellency and fellow Politburo members, I can tell you here that
Professor Moyo has on many occasions sought and found alliances with MDC-T
officials including booing the President in Parliament.

For instance, Professor Moyo here told Chamisa on July 13 2017 that regai
tingosunda zvidonhe izvi.

Added to that has been the plan by Professor Moyo and Cde Kasukuwere to
tarnish the names of fellow Party members.

Many will recall the issue that was raised Mabvuku-Tafara member of the
House of Assembly James Maridadi in March 16 2017 regarding the alleged
collusion between some Chinese businessmen and unnamed ZANU PF members to
smuggle blanket making material into the country.

It was Cdes Kasukuwere and Mashayamombe who had fed Maridadi with the lies
concerning the alleged smuggling racket.

Mahoka if she is honest can testify this. She was there when Mashayamombe
was instructing Maridadi and told him to contact Kasukuwere for more

Dr Chombo and Cde Mupfumira will be interested to know that behind his
purpoted solidarity with you, the National Commissar is behind the claims
by the opposition that you are corrupt.

To him, you are it was Cde Kasukuwere who told of your purported
involvement in the smuggling scam.

The National Commissar here is in fact the one actively propping up the

Just recently, specifically on 28 June 2017, Kasukuwere here met Thokozani
Khupe and former Deputy Mayor of Bulawayo, Banda who you promised to
reinstate despite the fact that a commission of inquiry found him guilty
of corruption.

So who is adding the opposition?

Banda has indicated that you demanded $30 000 to set him free.

Destroying the Army and the War Veterans

Cognisant of the fact that the army remains a vital cog in protecting the
system from undue and continued pressures from all over, it is important
for you Your Excellency to note that the duo of Professor Moyo and Cde
Kasukuwere have made concerted efforts to control that vital sector of our

It is not a secret that since the turn of the millennium, the West has
been trying weaken our institutions, in particular the security through
the socalled security sector reform agenda, Your Excellency what is
emerging now is shocking.

The same security sector reforms that we have studiously resisted over the
past two decades are now being championed by the likes of Professor Moyo
under the guise that members of the security are interfering in ZANU PF
political affairs. We need to be wary of such treacherous calls.

It is a fact that Professor Moyo has been boasting to his colleagues and
handlers that he has managed to put the Army in their position, whatever
that means.

He told his handlers the he managed to deceive the Central Intelligence
Organisation (CIO) into telling you Your Excellency that the Army wanted
to commit a coup when he knows truly well that all these are lies and

Their plan has revolved around systematically eliminating the war veteran
element within the military establishment since they are aware of the
unbreakable bond that exists between the army and ZANU PF.

The very people who have stood with the President since the liberation war
days are the ones now being accused by those who deserted of orchestrating
a coup d’etat against the very person they have loyal served for over four

In 2008, it is the same Moyo here who was attacking the Army Generals and
the rest of the security sector for their role, including campaigning for
the 27 June Presidential election runoff.

Now he pretends to be the chief loyalist, leading the charge against
senior army officers, who he berated for sustaining ZANU PF rule.

What is very disturbing is that, being tribal as he is, his campaign is
targeted at senior army officers mainly from Manicaland, Masvingo and
Midlands provinces, who he perceives to be supporting me.

What is it that these loyal cadre have done to be pushed out of the
military and party they have sacrificed their lives for to deserve this?

In fact, the senior officers who this gang is targeting are largely those
that have refused to be incorporated into their successionist agenda.

Let me put this into perspective. During Your Excellency’s visit to
Singapore in March 2016, their ally, a Rodney Dangarembizi approached
Major General Mugova and outlined this duo’s scheme which borders on

Dangarembizi, who was a previous acquaintance of General Mugova, was sent
specifically to dangle a carrot to him to join the gang with the promise
that he would be appointed Commander Defence Forces.

Dangarembizi bragged that the group comprising himself, Cde Kasukuwere,
Professor Moyo, Dr Chombo and Cde Walter Chidhakwa and Dr Lazarus Dokora
had taken over the running of the country from you Your Excellency.

Cde Tshinga Dube here can confirm that Vice President Mphoko here told him
of that plan as well.

Also, as part of their efforts to create a wedge between the Commander in
Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces and the Army Generals, this group has
on several occasions peddled the story that the Army intended to carry out
a coup under my instructions.

It is the same message, which for some reason, continues to be peddled. In
some countries, treasonous characters such as this duo could have been
languishing in jail.

On March 3 2016, Cde Kasukuwere told Newsday reporter Xolisani Ncube of
the alleged coup with the intention of inviting to carry out that story.

The National Commissar here even went out of his way to sound
correspondents of foreign media such as the BBC to prepare to cover the

On July 5 2016 while you were out of the country, Professor Moyo concorted
a story that his cousin Major Nkosana Moyo who is with the Presidential
Guard informed you of a planned coup by the Army and install me as the
country’s new leader.

You specifically cited General Sanyatwe as the brains behind the alleged
coup d etat.

The sad thing is that you wanted to destabilise the army unit that central
to the protection of the First Family you purport to want to protect.

It is a fact that you wrote a letter to that effect and after that was
ignored, you tried to resuscitate the matter months later, all in a bid to
destabilise the army.

Was it then a coincidence that on that same day Mashayamombe was spreading
the rumour that he had been blocked by Army from visiting ZBC’s Pockets
Hill Studios?

Mashayamombe claimed at the time that the Army would carry out the coup
within weeks, all in a brazen and bizarre attempt to tarnish my name.

What has happened since then?

Why should people believe your coup claims now when you have lied about
that before?

Who is trying to capture the Army here?

Cde Kasukuwere might want to explain his overt attempt to subvert members
of the Presidential Guard whom he gave money from the Youth Fund without
respecting or even following the chain of command by informing the
recipients’ superiors.

Why target the Presidential Guard if the intention was not to carry a

Jabulani Sibanda

This clique claims to love you more than anyone else has been courting
people who have publicly denounced the First Family including Jabulani

For instance, Cde Kasukuwere has been trying for the past two years to woo

On March 3 2016, he booked for Sibanda at Mekiles Hotel. He send money
through Ecocash to Sibanda.

On August 5 2017 he made another attempt to engage Sibanda using a senior
CIO officer [PIO Raire] trying to make it appear as if it was Sibanda

Chief Justice Appointment

Your Excellency, the process to choose a Chief Justice is as clear as
daylight but I found myself accused of trying to violate that process when
I had not done so.

Perhaps Your Excellency could tell Professor Moyo and VP Mphoko that
everything I did was above board and with your blessings.

On 11 August 2016 1 wrote a letter to you Your Excellency stipulating what
the law dictates when it comes to the appointment of the Chief Justice.

This is not withstanding the fact that Professor Moyo wanted to stall
Constitutional Amendment 1 which your had agreed to its implementation.

Several strategic were held at VP Mphoko’s house where Professor Moyo
wanted to present to the public that I was violating the Constitution.

Traditional Leaders

As part of their efforts to soil my name, Professor Moyo and Cde
l<asukuwere have approached traditional leaders to enhance their project.

Professor Moyo approached the President of the Chiefs Council, Chief
Fortune Charumbira during the week ending July 17 2017 trying to cajole
him to constitute a delegation to seek audience with you Your Excellency
to complain about my alleged succession plans.

This is a matter of fact that Chiefs Charumbira and Khumalo can confirm to

I am also aware that they have approached to the Provincial Chiefs Council
to pursue the same using money whose source is not difficult to locate.

Capture and compromise

Your Excellency, it is common cause that the gentlemen here have to all
intents and purposes become untouchables in the party, at least judging by
the fact that all they do is either brushed aside or is not acted upon at

It goes without saying that they go about and even brag that they are
working on your orders, specifically to destroy my person.

Upon arrival from Cancun, Mexico from the United Nations Conference on
Disaster Risk Reduction, Kasukuwere called his acolytes to a meeting at
his residence in Borrowdale.

According to Wonder Mashange, the Mashonaland Central Provincial Secretary
for Administration, Kasukuwere told them that Your Excellency specifically
told them to go after me.

Mashange tells anyone who cares to listen that it was Your Excellency who
directed that Moyo should address the SAPES Dialogue where he discussed
the succession issue, throwing in Dr Sekeramayi’s name.

Mashange recently boasted to a colleague that Kasukuwere and gang has
compromised” the First Lady, hence they will get away with anything.

Behind this facade of purported undying loyalty to the First Family, they
are going about soiling your name.

It is also fact that Kasukuwere had dinner with Wicknell Chivhayo.

You told Chivhayo that the First Lady was the one who had instructed you
to attack and expel party members, but had left you in a latch.

Similarly, Moyo has in the last month, been assembling a team of state and
private media journalists, claiming that it was an instruction from Your
Excellency to push market Dr Sekeramayi as your successor.

On 25 June 2017, Moyo and Mduduzi Mathuthu met the editor of Bmetro at
Holiday Inn, Bulawayo, where the issue of the recruitment of journalist
was discussed.

You also held another meeting at the same venue with Mathuthu and Edmund
Kudzai where you discussed about setting your media team.

Afterwards, Mathuthu phoned a number of journalists inviting them to the
secessionist project.

The party has effectively been captured and it is high time these things
are discussed openly.
