Zimbabwe: Mnangagwa appoints Moyo new head of spy agency

PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa has appointed Ambassador Isaac Moyo to the position of Director- General of the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) with immediate effect.

He takes over from Retired Major-General Happyton Bonyongwe who recently became Zimbabwe’s shortest-serving Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Minister.  Cde Aaron Nhepera had been Acting Director-General since Maj-Gen Bonyongwe’s departure.

The appointment of Ambassador Moyo was confirmed by Chief Secretary to the President and Cabinet Dr Misheck Sibanda in a statement last night. “Ambassador Moyo was serving as Zimbabwe’s Ambassador to the Republic of South Africa and United Kingdom of Lesotho,” read the Statement.

Ambassador Moyo served as the Executive Secretary of the African Union Committee of Intelligence and Security Service in Africa in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, before he was appointed Zimbabwe’s Ambassador to South Africa replacing Cde Phelekezela Mphoko who, until recently, was the country’s vice president. Cde Mphoko has since been expelled from Zanu-PF. – Source: http://www.herald.co.zw/ed-appoints-new-cio-boss/

      Who, may we ask – is Zanu protecting the people from? The people need protection from Zanu themselves – in the form of the ZNA and the ZRP. There is no mythical Racist Apartheid Regime to worry about, there is no Bush or Blair – and we have got rid of one 37 dynasty murderer in the form of Robert Mugabe so who is the next suspect? How did fancy pants Chiwenga and fancy pants Chihuri get such fancy houses in the first place?
      Is it not Shiri or the President himself that the people need protection from?
