Jonathan Moyo says Tsvangirai is now history


Information Minister Jonathan Moyo today said Movement for Democratic Change leader Morgan Tsvangirai is now history. There is nothing he can do now that he has not been able to do in the past 15 years that he has been leader of the MDC. Moyo was commenting on remarks by Tsvangirai at a rally in Zhombe at the weekend that people must take action against President Robert Mugabe because he does not care about the problems that they are facing. “We will soon be mobilising Zimbabweans to take action. Zimbabweans cannot be held hostage by one man,” Tsvangirai was quoted as saying. “We are now a basket case. Mugabe must be brought to the negotiating table, not by the MDC but rather by the masses of Zimbabwe.” Moyo said Tsvangirai’s statement was a cheap publicity stunt. ”Government will not be distracted by publicity stunts…..There’s no serious person out there, including among the MDC-T’s founders and original funders, who believes that Morgan Richard Tsvangirai can now do anything ‘massive’ which he has not been able to do over the last 15 years since the ill-fated 1999 formation of his embattled party which is now in a coma on its assured way to the political graveyard. Tsvangirai has exhausted all his options. What this means is that he is now history,” Moyo said.
