Jonathan Moyo suspense as Zanu PF Politburo meets

via Bulawayo24 NEWS | Jonathan Moyo suspense as Zanu PF Politburo meets. 18 June 2014

There is a reported suspense among Zanu PF senior officials as the politburo meets tomorrow with many keen on knowing about the extent of damage between President Robert Mugabe and Information Media and Broadcasting Services minister Jonathan Moyo.

In the last stormy politburo meeting, members reportedly aligned to Vice President Joyce Mujuru attacked Moyo accusing him among other things of dividing the party.

He was also accused of hiring journalists from the private media who were before the July 31 elections, calling for regime change.

The politburo clashes resulted in Mugabe publicly attacking Moyo at two public events calling the Zanu PF spin doctor a “weevil” and “devil incarnate.”

Mugabe and Moyo met last Monday at the request of the minister to iron out differences. The meeting was also attended by Presidential Affairs minister Didymus Mutasa and Central Intelligence Organisation boss Happyton Bonyongwe.

Moyo at the meeting reportedly clashed with both Mutasa and Bonyongwe as Mugabe was forced to become mediator.

Zanu PF spokesperson Rugare Gumbo declined to share the agenda of tomorrow’s meeting.

“Call me tomorrow after the meeting,” he said.

However, senior officials who spoke on condition of anonymity said they were keen to know of Moyo’s fate.

“Everyone is interested in knowing what really took place in that meeting and we are hoping that the President would give us a heads up,” said the senior official. – See more at:

    mugabe can not fire moyo for moyo is privy to the former s catalogue of sins against hapless zimbos. the noise by the dictator was a loud cry filled with fear given mounting health fears coupled with dismal failure to reign in his corrupt ministers. All he wanted to show was that he still has hard balls and is still in charge
