ZANU-PF Matabeleland North Province yesterday welcomed the sacking of Professor Jonathan Moyo from the party describing it as good riddance that would allow that party to breathe fresh air.

The Zanu-PF Central Committee, a fortnight ago, recommended the expulsion of Prof Moyo along with fellow members of the G40 cabal including former Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko, Saviour Kasukuwere and Patrick Zhuwawo among others.

They were accused of dividing and destabilising the party, fanning factionalism among other charges.

Party provincial chairperson Cde Richard Moyo said Prof Moyo had fallen by his sword and had no one to blame for his ejection from the revolutionary party.

“We accept the expulsion of Professor Moyo from the party and Parliament because he was the chief  engineer of the very things that got him fired like engaging in factionalism and dividing the party,” said Cde Moyo.

“We are so relieved that he has been fired, it’s good riddance and now we can breathe fresh air. Fellow Politburo members tried to talk him out of his behaviour but he would not listen. While we supported Government initiatives like Command Agriculture, Professor Moyo was opposed to it. He always swam against the tide.”

Cde Moyo said in the 2015 by elections, Prof Moyo received support from fellow Politburo members and the then Vice President (now President) Emmerson Mnangagwa to campaign for the Tsholotsho North constituency but turned against them after winning the seat.

“After winning the seat, Professor Moyo started attacking his colleagues in the politburo including Cde Mnangagwa. He had forgotten that Cde Mnangagwa had come for his star rally to help him canvass support and that on the day Cde Mnangagwa also made a donation of $5 000 for the local Mbiriya Primary School,” he said.

“We noticed that he was playing factional politics when he tried to downplay Cde Mnangagwa’s contribution creating an impression that only former Vice President Mphoko had made a donation during the rally.”

The provincial chairperson said the party wanted to charge Prof Moyo to which he responded to by launching a tirade against Politburo member Dr Obert Mpofu.

“He responded by launching a fight on Twitter targeting Dr (Obert) Mpofu and again we noticed that the leadership at the time seemed to be biased towards Prof Moyo, Kasukuwere and the entire group so proceedings were stopped,” said Cde Moyo.

He said Prof Moyo had no home in Tsholotsho but instead commuted to the constituency.

“He spent most of his time in Harare or plotting their factional politics with his friends in Mashonaland Central.

“He was a very divisive figure but fortunately for us, we did not allow his factional politics in the province,” said Cde Moyo.

    Lies. People in Tsholotsho love this man.

      That’s what you’re made to believe, stop being gullible. Well the most popular comment so far suggests that he should do more housework. There’s always an excuse.

      meeting aggression with more aggression never ever resolves it.

        Is that not your own MO?

        • Maphila Samuel Nhlabatsi

          I’m no longer into that, this is now a new Zimbabwe under a new dispensation.

            A Cobra loses its poison after it bites but given the time necessary the poison returns and it will bite again. (Doctor Do little)

          • Maphila Samuel Nhlabatsi

            so you’re a Cobra yourself, how pathetic. I guess you know what we do with snakes right, we go for the head. We hit the head.

          • Doctor Do little

            I rest my case. Your poison has returned 10 fold.

          • Maphila Samuel Nhlabatsi

            Sounds like you simply don’t want s3x with her, and you try and justify this by blaming it on her response to not wanting s3x with you. If you don’t want to have s3x with her, and she wants to have s3x with you, then you need to consider splitting up as you both want different things and are no longer compatible.

  • Zimbo1

    Blue lies. The man was even MP for the constituency as an independent. PPle love him there ,if the truth be told.U are back to your ways again Mr editor.

  • dotiyenja

    Turn coats, anyone who comes you follow. Is this how desparate things are in Zim. Wesaba ukukhiphsa iqiniso ngoba uzalamba. Eiish kunzima. We are building false democracy. Yesterday , you were killing each other for him. Tomorrow when Mnanggwa goes you will be singing a different tune. Bantu bakithi asimeleni iqiniso.

  • Chipoto Vhaivhai

    I don’t understand these Zanu goons. Interface rallies were always over subscribed, but today the old fossil has no one on his side. Amai has no one on her side today. Where have they all gone to? Is the notion then that people were being forced and bussed to attend forced? Or the gullible and stupid Zanu supporters go where the wind blows?

  • Vumani

    Professor Moyo has spearheaded development for his Tsholotsho consitituency he has been consistent in helping displaced communities in flooded areas and single handledly advocated for infrastructure development. His crime is being associated with G40 and accused of siphoning ZIMDEF funds which benefited the community leadership judging from the photos of his living conditions he cannot be said to be corrupt he never lived above his means as compared to the Chiwengas of the truth needs to be said.

    • Essexvale

      I’m sorry that it has been so hard on you and it can’t be nice to deal with what has been described as unpredictable mood swings and outbursts.

      Getting a girlfriend might ease the pressure on you, if you already married, leave your marriage, get custody of the kids or that your wife is emotionally abusive to you based on the frustrations in your words.

    • Maphila Samuel Nhlabatsi

      However, more anger and less compassion aren’t going to fix this. For anyone.

      • Doctor Do little

        Especially for you. You should change your name to Nhlabati.

        • Maphila Samuel Nhlabatsi

          In siSwati we spell & pronounce it as Nhlabatsi. I’m Swati by the way & I come all the way from Manzini.

    Thats zany for you. Remember when when 10 provinces endorsed that ED be fired from gvt and be replaced by Gileyisi. Two weeks later they wanted ED back as president of both zany and country and grace expelled. Either they are bloody donkeys or we are lied to.

    • Essexvale

      Sorry to hear you’re going through this. I agree with others who suggest going to a GP for advice. There could be many physiological reasons why you fly into such rages.

      • Nkunzemnyama

      A short course of antidepressants might help you.

      • Doctor Do little

        A short course of ant psychotics might help you.

        • Maphila Samuel Nhlabatsi

          Can I come to you for a prescription or you’re already into your course. Just pulling a leg my friend how are you, this morning. Funny how the Tsholotsho people are now biting the hand that feeds them.

          • Doctor Do little

            Like many you underestimate the people of this area. Are you speaking about the people of Tsholotsho per se or the Politicians of Tsholotsho ?

          • Maphila Samuel Nhlabatsi

            Pardon me my friend, I don’t underestimate anyone, I’m referring to the Politicians who have sidelined JM for all the things he did for them.

          • Doctor Do little

            What did you expect?

  • Black Mambazo

    Maphila Samuel Nhlabatsi you are abusing your moderating powers here. The is a new order now. Desist or you will be purged.
