Zanu PF says it will not succumb to threats and pressure from the army… full statement

Information Minister Simon Khaya Moyo has issued a statement using a Zanu PF letterhead saying the ruling party will not succumb to threats and pressure from the army in Zimbabwe.

This follows a dramatic two days in which first Zimbabwe Defence Forces commander Constantine Chiwenga warned of military intervention if Zanu PF kept purging liberation war fighters.

On Tuesday Zimbabweans witnessed four army tanks streaming into the capital Harare in a show of force.  The exact reasons for the soldiers going onto the streets was not clear.

Two other tanks parked beside the main road from Harare to Chinhoyi, about 20 km (14 miles) from the city. One, which was pointed in the direction of the capital, had come off its tracks.

Earlier on Tuesday the Zanu PF youth league accused the military chief of subverting the constitution for threatening to intervene after President Robert Mugabe plunged the country into crisis by sacking his Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa last week.

In the statement issued later in the day Khaya Moyo effectively accused Chiwenga of treason and reminded him that the SADC region and African continent in general do not condone military coups.

“It is with humility and a heavy heart that we come before you to pronounce the indisputable reality that there is instability in Zanu-PF today and as a result anxiety in the country at large,” Chiwenga, 61, told reporters at the King George IV military barracks in the capital, Harare. 

“We must remind those behind the current treacherous shenanigans that when it comes to matters of protecting our revolution, the military will not hesitate to step in,” Chiwenga said in a statement read to reporters at the army headquarters.

“The current purging … targeting members of the party with a liberation background must stop forthwith.”

“This is a new and potentially dangerous twist to the politics of the country,” Eldred Masunungure, a professor of political science at the University of Zimbabwe, said by phone. “It’s the toxic insertion of the military and will sour relations between the military and government.”

  • SK I am reminded of the CHEMICAL ALI (Not that I support US invasion of Iraq 🇮🇶). Are you possible the new CHEMICAL ALI in the making.
    It’s joking time at the moment. If this thing goes unchecked some will be dragged on to the streets. There is no U-turn for Chiwenga If he loosens he will be dragged on streets by Zanu pf youths as a show of power. What a position for zanoids to be.

  • So this is what the Chinese we advising him to do. Jus be fast n get done with it Guvheya.

  • Why not a press conference? Is it authentic?

  • Kaya Moyo you are behaving like the former IRAQ MINISTER OF INFORMATION, COMICAL ALI, who sounded normal saying the Iraq forces where defending the city when Sadam had already been defeated & fled the city.

    • Thought of Comical Ali after reading the headlines. Religiously he would address a press conference in Baghdad 12noon Zim time in 2003. He would make you think they were winning the war until one day I waited and waited and waited for the press conference and he was nowhere to be found. Information minister who spoke very good English and was a pleasure to listen too. He defended the integrity of Iraq in word only.

  • If Gvt had no military backing they would hav bn history 10 yrs bck.

  • Idiot

  • excuse me sir, if your party was a mere political group, i could have sworn that you would have succumbed to the army’s pressure as easy as abc.you are confident you won’t because your party, like the octopus, has had its feet everywhere that’s zimbabwean.

    if the army had stood by it’s mandate as the national security body, with the mission of protecting both the country and its citizenry irregardless of political affliation, you would have regretted your womb kicks.in a normal socio-political set-up, the army, especially independent, impartial and uncontaminated, is a body you won’t make such utterances towards.you know you subcontracted it.in fact, you own it.

    you act like the incredible hulk, like you got guts, not that you are strong, but because you really know that your party has absorbed every institution, on the pretence of both brotherhood and camaraderism.you are at every corner, like the red flag, and like the beast of revelation, have succeeded in whatever you plan to accomplish, either in light or in darkness.

    read your clock sir, its hands are ticking.
