ZANU PF politburo member and national spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo has defended his party’s splurge on top of the range vehicles. In an interview with the Standard Moyo said ZANU PF does not raid state coffers for its programmes but gets money from its friends. As far as state money is concerned, he said that his party gets only its fair share prescribed by the law since it has at least 5% representation in Parliament. Moyo had this to say
We are a gigantic party with a strong support base. We have friends of the party as well who come in and assist. We are an organised party, not a tuck-shop briefcase movement thriving on stone-throwing and making noise, we have a social base that has representation everywhere. We have friends who believe in us as a party and assist when need be.
The money we get from the government is very clear. It is regulated by law and given to every party with representation which is above 5% in Parliament. We don’t abuse any state resources but work with a strong budget supported by our people. From government, we only get what is ours in accordance with the law, the Political Parties Finance Act and all.
