Jonathan Moyo back on the front page


Information Minister Jonathan Moyo, who had a torrid time at the weekend after President Robert Mugabe first called him a “devil incarnate” and then a “weevil”, seems to have survived the onslaught and is back on the front page of The Herald. Moyo was pictured today with Moses Musarurwa, the head of manufacturing at BAT and the picture was posted on the home page of The Herald website. The story did not quote Moyo who toured BAT today at all. It quoted Lovemore Manatsa the managing director of BAT as saying that the company had no intention of divesting from Zimbabwe. “Over the past four years we have put in about US$5.4 million in infrastructure and particularly now in the distribution part of the business. So that was the point of engaging key stakeholders including the minister of information to put the point across that we are not divesting out of Zimbabwe,” Manatsa was quoted by The Herald as saying. “As part of that engagement to make sure that we are not talking from the tops of our heads we invited them to come through to BAT headquarters here and walk through and appreciate what we are talking about and that is basically the reason why the minister and his team came in today.”
