Jonathan Moyo stays


INFORMATION, Media and Broadcasting services minister is continuing with his work in government despite a vicious attack against him by President Robert Mugabe.


Moyo, despite being accused of dividing Zanu PF using the public media and with many speculating about his imminent depature from the ruling party, observers said the party’s spin doctor was staying put.

Yesterday Moyo reportedly attended Cabinet chaired by Mugabe and was expected to give a key note address at the Voluntary Media Council of Zimbabwe workshop in Kadoma tomorrow.

The Zanu PF Politburo member will this morning tour the British American Tobacco manufacturing plant in Harare while on Friday he will tour the Chisumbanje Ethanol plant. Although no comment could be obtained last night from Moyo as he was not reachable, it is understood that the army has reportedly provided a helicopter for the minister’s tour of Chisumbanje.

Chisumbanje ethanol project is jointly owned by Zanu PF-aligned businessman Billy Rautenbach’s Macdom Investment and government through Agriculture and Rural development Authority.

Rautenbach is also reportedly linked to Justice minister Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Mnangagwa and Vice President Joice Mujuru reportedly lead factions angling to succeed Mugabe in the Zanu PF succession matrix.
