Former Higher Education Minister Jonathan Moyo today said he was not the only former ZANU-PF member who supported Movement for Democratic Change leader Nelson Chamisa in his presidential campaign in 2018.
Another G40 member, former President Robert Mugabe’s nephew Patrick Zhuwao, paid US$6 00 for radio advertisements on ZiFM, he said.
G40 was a faction of the Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front that opposed Emmerson Mnangagwa’s bid to succeed Mugabe and pushed for Mugabe’s wife Grace to take over but was foiled by the military I 2017.
Moyo was outed by his colleague Edmund Kudzayi as having supported Chamisa’s campaign yesterday.
“It’s an open secret that my TL in these streets actively supported @nelsonchamisa’s candidature in 2018. No regrets or apologies. On the media campaign you cite, I got other comrades to also give their support. For example, @PatrickZhuwao paid USD 6K for radio ads on @ZiFMStereo,” Moyo tweeted today.
It is not clear why the former G40 members are making the exposes now because they are definitely going to damage Chamisa’s political career.
Chamisa has claimed that he won the 2018 elections and has refused to recognise Emmerson Mnangagwa as Zimbabwe’s President despite losing the case in court.
Reports say Chamisa’s stance has upset some Western countries as this is tantamount to refusing to accept the rule of law and some might be working to replace him as leader of the MDC.
