Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association chairman Cde Christopher Mutsvangwa has challenged Professor Jonathan Moyo to contest his claims that he was Ndabaningi Sithole’s illegitimate child, who was seeking revenge for his father who was rejected by the revolutionary party after forging an alliance with the Smith regime at the height of the war of liberation.
Cde Mutsvangwa said he also had empirical evidence that Prof Moyo was recruited by western imperialists who were pushing the regime change in Zimbabwe. He said Prof Moyo was assigned by these people to dislodge Zanu-PF with his “petty parochial ideologies” that reside in him.
He said Prof Moyo was a traitor just like his ‘father’ claiming that the former Zanu Ndonga leader had facilitated his mentorship in politics by Cde David Thodhlana (Todhlaana) so that he could be attested into the army and become a commander.
Cde Mutsvangwa called for Prof Moyo’s expulsion from Zanu-PF because he had become irrelevant and lacked discipline.
“There are people in the party who have no history and are opportunists who hate the President, the party and the security establishment. Manje mirai muone. Tinoda kupedzerana. Professor Jonathan Moyo thinks he is unique and his professorship is special, as if there are no other professors in this country who are more brilliant than him.
“He was sent to Tanzania by Sithole after being promised the commandership. This is well documented,” he said.
Said Cde Mutsvangwa: “There are only two people who fled Mgagao, a mentally challenged person and him. This means their thinking was alike.
Jonathan was given a scholarship to go and learn in the United States of America. On his way, he stole radios from his stepmother Vesta Sithole.
“He is friends with Robert Rodberg, who was a strong critic of President Mugabe who was brought to Harvard School of Governance from Ford Foundation to recruit black people to support imperialists. Jonathan Moyo has always been anti-Government, anti-Zanu-PF and does not like President Mugabe.
“This is evident through his writings in the pink paper. Ane daka rake redzinza. He wants to take revenge for Ndabaningi Sithole. Ndakamuti kana uchiramba enda unoita DNA test. He has a petty parochial agenda residing in him. He wants to reinstate his father’s kingdom. Prof Moyo is inherently and impulsively destructive. He has no place in Zanu-PF. His role is finished.”
Cde Mutsvangwa also launched a scathing attack on Zanu-PF national commissar Cde Saviour Kasukuwere whom he said had no history in the party and that his parents connived with white settlers to ill treat fellow Zimbabweans.
