The Gorden Moyo Wikileaks cables


Gorden Moyo first made his name as a publicity secretary of ZAPU2000 but he rose to fame as the director of Bulawayo Agenda. It was largely because of his work at Bulawayo Agenda that Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai appointed him his special advisor. He brought Moyo in to represent the interests of civic society but he was not able to mobilise the funds that the Movement for Democratic Change expected to flow in from donors. Moyo was demoted from Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office to State Enterprises and Parastatals. There are only nine cables that mention his name. Here they are:

9-ACR boss said Mbada could increase diamond production 10-fold

8-Gorden Moyo threatened to shoot house breakers

7-Gono ZANU-PF’s poster boy for corruption

6-Mugabe agreed to rescind Shamu’s appointments

5-Gorden Moyo said without Mugabe there would be chaos

4-Gorden Moyo led investment delegation to London

3-MDC threatened to pull out if ZANU-PF sabotaged constitutional process

2-Gorden Moyo predicted that there would be a backlash against the MDC

1-Gorden Moyo was part of a panel shedding light on Mugabe’s mess
