JONATHAN MOYO TAKES A SWIPE AT MORGAN TSVANGIRAI’S ‘FAILURES’
Professor Jonathan Moyo, the Zanu PF government spokesperson, also Information, Media and Broadcasting Services Minister Professor Jonathan Moyo, who is currently embroiled in a war of words with Obert Mpofu has called, the MDC T leader, Morgan Tsvangirai’s Press statement, a desperate response to MDC Tinternal politics which in his view, all stem from Tsvangirai’s failure to keep MDC T together, having effectively divided it twice so far, in 2005 and 2014.
Jonathan Moyo added that Mugabe’s Zanu PF regime is actually working well in conjunction with the AU and Sadc in moving Zimbabwe forward. Tsvangirai has already indicated that MDC T has written to AU and SADC over the Zimbabwe crisis but no responses have been forthcoming and this has led to MDC T seeking alternative solutions to the political impasse, which include a national convergence conference where various political parties, the civil society and the Church would come up with solutions to the problems bedevilling the country..
Jonathan Moyo said “It is notable that while the MDC formations are competing to undermine Zim-Asset and derail economic reforms, Sadc, the AU and the international community have together with the local business community joined hands with the Government to make Zim-Asset work,” said Prof Moyo.
“The discourse on and in Zimbabwe has moved away from the “crisis” that is all over Tsvangirai’s Press statement to “development”, which is the new rallying point that speaks to Zim-Asset whose implementation is set for major acceleration in 2015.
“Zimbabweans and their counterparts in Sadc and the AU along with the international community, do not believe that Tsvangirai, who dismally lost the 2013 election, can ever lead the nation and keep it united when he has hopelessly failed to unite and lead his own party which is falling apart.”
“In the first case, the media has been awash throughout the week with reports that the United Movements for Democratic Change UMDC, led by Welshman Ncube and Tendai Biti, are gaining momentum and threatening to overshadow Tsvangirai’s MDC T when it holds its inaugural congress in July 2015.
“The fact that the Constitutional Court is expected to make a final determination of who has what MPs between the UMDC and the MDC-T is leaving Tsvangirai with sleepless nights.”
Jonathan Moyo, also added that, the Zimbabwe Democracy Institute released a study which received widespread media coverage this week which concluded that Morgan Tsvangirai’s MDC T was facing oblivion at a time when Zanu-PF had made huge hegemonic strides. Sibusiso Ngwenya
