Moyo made the claim through a post on his Twitter handle on Saturday morning. However, commenting on Moyo’s insinuations, MDC-T spokesperson, Khaliphani Phugeni told NewZimbabwe.com on Saturday that nothing could be further from the truth. He said:
The MDC-T notes with great disappointment and disdains a tweet from Professor Jonathan Moyo, which purports that the MDC-T through President Dr Khupe sought funding from a Zanu PF faction going by the name of G40 through her then-aide Mr Witness Dube.
The truth of the matter is that Prof Moyo has relations with many Zimbabweans including those in opposition politics and even those close to Dr Khupe. The MDC-T would like to put it on record that at no stage did the party ever seek funding from any Zanu PF faction directly or through a proxy.
Moyo had said MDC-T president Thokozani Khupe’s aide, Witness Dube, was sent to ask for funding from the former ZANU PF officials.
