Speaking on the sidelines of a United States Embassy’s Food For Thought discussion in Bulawayo on Wednesday, former Industry and International Trade minister Nkosana Moyo said he is considering challenging President Robert Mugabe in the 2018 elections as an independent candidate. He also revealed he would make a firm decision within the next few weeks.
I am confirming that I’m seriously considering that (running as an independent candidate for the presidential post). I am still considering it. I will inform the people in the next few weeks as to whether I will or not, because if I do so, I want to see to it that this assists everyone. Our country can succeed if we elect people who can work for the people, not for individuals.
He revealed that he had been approached by Zimbabwe People First but he turned down the offer.
