Zanu PF leaders want Jonathan Moyo expelled

Bulawayo,- The leader for war veterans, Jabulani Sibanda has defended Zanu (PF) politburo member Jonathan Moyo saying those who don’t want him in Zanu (PF) are just few corrupt senior members who are scared of being exposed.\r\n

Sibanda said this amid reports that some senior party members want Moyo disciplined and expelled from the party.

Speaking to journalists in Bulawayo on Tuesday, Sibanda said the coming back of Moyo to Zanu (PF) is the coming back of development and some few corrupt senior party members are worried about his return.

“Moyo can only cause problems to those corrupt people in the party who are using their positions in government and party for their own benefit. Those people whom I will not mention by names now, will continue facing problems from Jonathan and from me,” said Sibanda.

Sibanda added : “The coming back of Jonathan is the coming back of development which had been stopped for quite some time by those who crafted his expulsion from the party”.

Moyo, who was recently re-admitted in Zanu (PF) after spending time in the wilderness, is said to have divided the former ruling party’s presidium – with Mugabe the only one in the top four tolerating him.

Two weeks ago Zanu (PF) through Moyo, attacked Zuma for announcing during a SADC Troika meeting held last month in Livingstone Zambia that the regional bloc was going to establish an election road map for Zimbabwe. However the party has already distanced itself from Moyo’s attack on SADC and Zuma.

Zanu (PF) through Vice President Joice Mujuru is reported to have apologised to South African President Jacob Zuma for Moyo’s recent attacks.

Moyo had written in state-run Sunday Mail newspaper blasting Zuma’s proposed roadmap as a regime change tool.

In a full page hard-hitting opinion piece, Zanu PF’s once prodigal son suggested Zuma wanted to use the roadmap to overthrow Zimbabwe’s embattled President Robert Mugabe in the same way the South African leader voted for last month’s UN resolution that imposed a no-fly zone over Libya.
