Foreign Affairs Minister Addresses African Diplomats On Chin’ono, Ngarivhume Arrests

Zimbabwe’s Foreign Affairs minister Sibusiso Moyo has told the Heads of African Diplomatic Missions that the arrest of prominent journalist Hopewell Chin’ono and opposition leader Jacob Ngarivhume of Transform Zimbabwe has nothing to do with corruption.

He further alleged that the duo was arrested for intending to dislodge a constitutionally established government after they rallied the citizenry to participate in protests dubbed anti-corruption demonstrations. Moyo said:

The origins of this latest onslaught of Western denigration lies, of course, in the recent arrest and remand of Hopewell Chin’ono and Jacob Ngarivhume — both of whom are facing serious allegations of incitement to violence and criminal abuse of social media platforms to actively encourage Zimbabweans to violently rise up against their democratically-elected Government in the form of a purported coordinated display of citizen’s anger over corruption.

In essence and notwithstanding the ‘corruption’ angle propagated by these two individuals and their Western sponsors, the ‘call-to-action’ campaign they have been fronting actually has nothing at all to do with corruption.

A few weeks ago, Chin’ono exposed grand corruption by government officials and the revelation angered the impoverished citizenry.

Ngarivhume called for anti-corruption protests on the 31st of July, they have been endorsed by other opposition parties.
