Aspiring 2018 presidential candidate and former cabinet minister, Dr Nkosana Moyo, has dismissed the notion that he was planted by Zanu-PF in order to split the opposition vote.
While addressing stakeholders in Gweru, Moyo said:
I am not a Zanu PF project at all and, in fact, when I was appointed into Cabinet by Mugabe, I came from outside the party due to my expertise.
I have never been a holder of a Zanu PF party card. If I ever had Zanu PF blood in me, I would have stayed into Mugabe’s government and enjoyed all the benefits that you know.
I have always wanted to see this country prosper and that is why I initially joined that Cabinet. I also think at that time Mugabe took advantage of that fact because he suspected I could join (Morgan) Tsvangirai’s MDC-T.
