Speaking to The Chronicle, Simon Khaya Moyo dismissed reports there is discord between the Zanu-PF and the Government.
This comes after statements by senior Zanu-PF members concerning fiscal and monetary policy statement which were recently announced by Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube and Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe governor John Mangudya. The policy statements resulted in an increase in food prices and a shortage of basic commodities as the exchange rates for foreign currency started skyrocketing. Khaya Moyo said people must never misunderstand when Zanu-PF pronounces its position. Said Khaya Moyo:
There is that very clear amniotic relationship and indeed there must never be any conflict between the party and the Government. In fact, you should be aware that these two entities are chaired by the same person. If there is any misunderstanding from any quarter it cannot be because of any discord between the two. There could be misinterpretation somewhere or somehow but certainly there is no discord of any kind and that must be very clear. People must never misunderstand when the party perhaps pronounces its position particularly in the recent times in terms of price increases and fuel shortages. Some of these things are as a result of unscrupulous traders and indeed some mischief in some of these business circles including the madness regarding the black market in terms of currency. Obviously, that is not a reason to believe that there is discord at all. We are one and we must indeed work in one common direction in the interest of people.
