Higher Education Minister Jonathan Moyo has made demands to Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa in response to the $3 million defamation lawsuit filed last Friday.
Moyo wants Mnangagwa to provide information on how he leaked his video presentation to the public and to explain what the politburo is as well as what position he holds in the Zanu-PF organ. Moyo is being represented by Hussein, Ranchhod and Co. Part of his request reads:
Plaintiff (Mnangagwa) is required to state what Zanu PF politburo is, what positions do the plaintiff and defendant hold in the politburo, how many members consist of the politburo? The manner in which defendant instigated the circulation to the general public of the video, what date and place did the defendant ‘instigate’ the circulation of the video to the general public?
Moyo also wants Mnangagwa to provide him with a copy of the video or transcript of the exact words, which he said, which are defamatory and also demands to know if Mnangagwa was given an opportunity to respond to Moyo’s statements in the politburo.
