“Chiwenga Wanted Mugabe To Die In Office… Mugabe Spent Final Days Using Uber Taxes”, Jonathan Moyo

Former ZANU PF politburo member Jonathan Moyo said former Commander Zimbabwe Defence Forces, Constantino Chiwenga wanted Robert Mugabe to die in office.

Moyo said Chiwenga insisted that since Joshua Nkomo, one of the nation’s founders died in office, the same should happen to Mugabe. Said Moyo:

The death of former President Robert Mugabe at a hospital in Singapore on Thursday, September 6, 2019, rang memory bells about the hush-hush, but spirited conversations that Zanu PF comrades used to have about this day, during the 2013 election campaign in which his advanced age and mortality were campaign issues.

… General Constantino Chiwenga was adamant that calls, which were then spreading and getting louder, for Mugabe to name a successor and retire were misguided because “as a founding leader Mugabe was entitled to die in office like his departed co-founders Joshua Nkomo, Simon Muzenda and Joseph Msika, who had died in office with the dignity of the office befitting a founding leader”.

This view became the Chiwenga gospel. None of the comrades imagined a situation in which someday there would be media reports that “former President Robert Mugabe” has died out of office.

This possibility was taken as an unacceptable indignity to be avoided at all cost.

Yet this is what happened on the dark day of September 6, 2019.

Moyo also claimed that the late former President spent his last days in Singapore on very little and his mode of transport were uber taxis. He said:

Mugabe died not only out of office but also out of the country with the attendant indignity in Singapore where, despite government claims that he was being accorded State facilitation and assistance, his regular mode of transport there was uber taxis, as he had to make do with very little.

  1. If he was using Uber taxis Singapore it was not because he was poor. What happened to the US$6 Billion he received for DRC from Kabila for sending Zimbabwe National Army to prop up Kabila, Zimbabwe never benefitted from that payment.

  2. It’s clear that Prof Jonathan Moyo always wanted to be at the centre of the late Robert Mugabe’s life, for all selfish reasons, of course! It’s very difficult to believe Jonathan Moyo’s stories. He behaves like a troublesome child! The late Mugabe’s biggest mistake in life was to trust Jonathan Moyo.

  3. That was the biggest mistake of making him think he was the best leader and he must rule until he die. That was primitive. African countries struggle to follow succession rules laid down in their constitution. Dying on power like Joshua Nkomo, Joseph Msika and John Nkomo was a sign of failure. Mugabe failed to run the country and was becoming a problem to our economy with his I’ll health. Politically he was good. Economically he failed and did not have alternative. He was a useless orator talking bad things about America and Britain on the other hand he wanted financial assistence from them. Mugabe is not an icon and has no legacy to talk about. People died because of him. He died a bitter man because he did not want to have a successor.

    1. 93 a blessing to live not in office in not of sound mind and kind but aged in selfiness as will all who progress in age, a right minded person would surrender for the sanity of it’s people but insanity for self. Is luscious thoughts in age as such should not spend last days in care doctors, nurses, family members at side. Death is enviable no matter the office. Truth, too old to rule amongst other mayhem brought upon in allowing to reign in old age.
