Jonathan Moyo hallucinates too much.
No sane Zimbabwean takes Jonathan Moyo seriously anymore particularly when he accuses gallant fighters of freedom in the MDC as sellouts. One has to look at the man’s recent past to feel revulsion at his puerile and primitive insults. We are however concerned when he tries to influence the outcome of an ongoing trial by suggesting that the leadership of the MDC currently on trial, facing treason charges has no right to engage in political activity or discourse about the country’s crises.
Even for someone who has an obvious disdain for due process, Moyo ought to know that accused persons are innocent until proven guilty. It has become Jonathan Moyo’s hallucinatory tendency to link the MDC to Strive Masiyiwa then to the Daily News. The link needless to say is based on his disregard for facts and his predilection for fiction. Wishful thinking is a condition associated with those who fear change, Jonathan Moyo is such a person. He wishes that the MDC had, as he describes it "terminally dwindling membership," he is obviously describing his Party ZANU (PF). We advise Moyo, to ask his closest aid, whoever that might be to show him the brand new MDC membership card. Of course, MDC membership cards are only available to decent freedom loving Zimbabweans and Moyo is not included in that category.
For the MDC, whether Jonathan Moyo’s president phoned President Mbeki or not is of no significance. Through accelerated mass actions of various forms, we in the MDC will prevail on ZANU (PF) to come to the negotiating table in order to work out a transition to free and fair elections that will give the people of Zimbabwe an opportunity to choose leaders of their preference and we all know who they will choose.
