Zanu PF abused State resources: Moyo

FORMER Higher and Tertiary Education minister Jonathan Moyo has admitted that Zanu PF looted State coffers to sustain its activities.
The broke Zanu PF, which bought several campaign vehicles and spent over $20 million in Presidential interface rallies last year, has over the years denied looting government coffers to fund its largesse.

BY STAFF REPORTER

In an interview with South African Broadcasting Corporation on Wednesday night, Moyo said Zanu PF did not have any other source of funding because all its companies had either been run down or were not paying dividends to the party, leaving it broke and riding on government funding.

“There is no cent that comes from those companies, including a bank, including investments in the region and countries like Namibia and even South Africa,” he said.

Moyo brushed aside allegations that he corruptly looted $430 000 from the Zimbabwe Manpower Development Fund (Zimdef), which had become a subject of investigation even before he skipped the country, saying the money was used for Zanu PF programmes.

“They say that I took $430 000 from Zimdef, when they know very well that the money . . . if you look at that
$430 000, about $200 000 of that went into the ministry’s participation at the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair and the remainder of that money supported approved Zanu PF programmes,” he said.

Moyo said he used another

$100 000 to fund various developmental projects is his Tsholotsho North constituency. The self-exiled former Zanu PF politburo member, instead, accused President Emmerson Mnangagwa and Vice-President Constantino Chiwenga of being corrupt.

“I am not corrupt. This is seriously laughable. This is coming from the most corrupt politicians and public officials in the history of our country. They cannot account for the assets that they have. The richest individual in the Republic of Zimbabwe is Emmerson Mnangagwa,” he said.

Presidential spokesperson George Charamba recently accused Moyo of launching a smear campaign because he misses the trappings of power.

Zanu PF spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo could not be reached for comment yesterday, as his phone went unanswered.

      1. Osleg is known for diamonds plundering all they way from DRC to Zim. Even the UN knows their thieving business. Yes G40 was corrupt, including it leader Mugabe,. But Osleg are no saints. They steal and also kill.

    2. GET RID OF “M” CONSTITUTION IMMEDIATLY

  2. why is this publication so obsessed with Jonathan Moyo? He is now totally irrelevant to the Zimbabwe situation.

    1. Umkhonto ka Shaka

      At least he has inside information of Zanu thievery, yes he may have diverted $430 000 to fund Zanu programmes but its nothing compared to a missing $15 Billion which Mnagagwa, Chiwenga are complicit.

  3. Hahahaha Jonso please give us a break.why were you silent about all these things all along?You were part of this Zanu PF.The only difference is that you are no longer part of the ruling crew.I bet my last bond coin, if you were still in good books with ED,you could have been defending everything that has happened so far.You are good at singing for your meal Professor,we know that.

    1. Jonso was the architect and very active participant in this nonsense. If ED is so corrupt, why has he launched an investigation in all corruption in the country.You think he is so naive to think that he will not be caught by his own snare? For example, he has recently launched an investigation against land barons. Would he be so stupid to launch it if he is one of them?

      1. simply because he wont investigate himself. and anyone with a link to him will not be on the list. Thats why they are only targetting former G40 members and not touching ED friends including the notoriously corrupt Obert Mpofu.

      2. @Mugocha, what ED is doing is just a smokescreen. From your comment it looks he has also tricked you. He is investigating where he knows he did not take part and people he knows belong to the other side.

  5. huProfessor hwacho ndahushaya ini

    kkkkk kakabviswa pamukaka kasati kaguta, kasati kapedza kuba neku looter katsotsi kemunhu

  7. Our Zimbabwe needs complete overhaul, Zanu Pf is a corrupt part we need Change Please fork out this shit part in next election

  8. Jonathan Moyo we might hate him but he is telling the truth. How on earth does a bankrupt and broke party fund and hold 10 ralies in less than 6 months? He has a point even those currently in power use state funds for their constituencies my foot!

  9. Muchazvidura hamusati mati muchati honzi kkkkk

  10. Comment…Ini ndakati zvangu zii. Handimbotauri chinhu. Jonso haazivi kwake.

  11. the prof must be dumber than I though. He confesses to using $230 000 for party bussiness and sees nothing wrong with that? Daa! And an additional $100 000 to buy votes in his constituency when opposition MPs are not getting CDF. So he thinks his wrong is right because he thinks some one else committed a worse wrong than him? Is his professorship from TM?

  12. While Jonono is a very troubled man,(just like the dreadman,Zvuwawo) if he has tangible details he must present it for all to see, least we write him completely off as a fraud master and an attention seeker trying to live up to a shitty reputation.

  13. Jonso remember wakamira kuhigh table uchitwita marujata achitukirira EDM uchismiler sekacheche kapihwa sweet kat iyewe wakatiza sei chaizvo wakaita border jumper here or Panenyaya apa

  14. Moyo was a mere purse snatcher among murderous people in Zanu pf,he deserves his half a year in prison,bt the killers now pursuing him deserve to rot in our filthy dungeons.

  15. pakaipa apa vakomana.G40 yakaona kare ten years ago kuti Munangagwa oda kubvisa mugabe.Hongu mugabe abva neginya.Dai vanaChiwenga vasina kuitacoop vanhanzva huVice here.Asi sure kutonga usina kuvhotegwa zvine chimiro here.Mazimbabwe takavata tototi zvakanaka zvakadai.tobatigwa pfuti tosekerera.aaaaa.

  16. Jonso spot on even now we have a corrupt ED buying twin cabs for chiefs at the expense of civil servants . Please jonso spill more beans we are enjoying it .Come elections zanu must go and we will start from scratch .

  17. It is true what Jonathan Moyo is saying but why didn’t he say it during his tenure as Minister. What it means is his former boss was also a thief. So looking at our present government now it is hard for us to trust Chinamasa because he was the Minister of Finance when all the dirty games were taking place . Jonathan is not going to prison alone.

  18. We are suffering very much righ ,now,a lot of talk is going on and all that wont bring food to our tables,We might not leave to see the elections.Are elections better than our human lives.Jonso you contributed to our suffering see now.When will we rest from all this.

  19. Comment…Kkkkkkkk. vanhu momboziva kunakidza veduwe. which people or party has proven record of being non corrupt, democratic, have people at heart, etc? none. I know nunhu kana asingadi mumwe munhu kana party he or she will never see anything good from his enemy. Life is about repentance from being a bad guy to a good guy. hapana chotadzisa kuti ED and crew varepente coz vaionawo zvakanaka nezvakaipa zvavakaita. I think they need to be given the chance and support.

  20. moyo this is just a matter of bitterness we know who you are a SnAKE IF YOU WHERE IN GOVERNMENT YOU WUOLD BE SUPPORTING ED LEFT RIGHT AND CENTRE. yOU WHERE PART OF A GOV THAT RAN DOWN ZIM SO JUST KEEP QUIET.
