War Veterans chairperson, Chris Mutsvangwa has disowned another Twitter account saying it is a creation of the G40 cabal that wants to taint his image.
In an interview with The Herald, a state-run publication, Chris Mutsvangwa singled exiled former cabinet Minister, Professor Jonathan Moyo, saying he was impersonating him on Twitter to seek relevance. He said:
Jonathan Moyo at it again…impersonating. An existence of barren exile is coming to a desultory grind of hallucinations.
It is spewing out a witches’ brew of life-long espionage, intrigue, unrequited ambition, war desertion, spurious journalism and cantankerous politics. It now bears the yield of zero-to-negative credibility for the over-used and burnt out Professor Jonathan Moyo.
In desperation Jonso (Moyo) resorts to the cloning of my name on his social media tweets. All that, an extreme quest for the vanished readership of his verbal diarrhoea of lies and nonsense. It’s a cruel pity that Jonathan Moyo is a self-inflicted victim of confidence and esteem lost in oneself.
Chris Mutsvangwa has in the past also disowned other Twitter accounts accusing G40 of using the handles to soil his image.
The handles were being used to criticise ZANU PF officials including President Emmerson Mnangagwa over maladministration and other things.
In 2019, an account which Chris Mutsvangwa said was a parody posted saying ZANU PF had failed to run the country and should therefore quit. The post read:
Am trying without success to find a conceivable and credible excuse for my party and govt’s failure to resolve the current economic haemorrhage.
Comrades, lest just quit and let the next generation take over. They too love this country. They need it more than us in fact.
Last year, the former Advisor to President Emmerson Mnangagwa also distanced himself from a Twitter handle which had invited opposition MDC leader, Nelson Chamisa to a dialogue with President Mnangagwa on an equal basis. Read the tweet:
Comrade Chamisa come let’s reason together on a 50/50 basis and forget about the election cock-up.
Comrades, we will leave a great legacy and the economy will start to bud and sprout in two days.
It will be all smiles on the streets in hours. We are all compatriots and patriots.
Again, Mutsvangwa accused “the moribund and forgotten G40s” of creating the posts with the intention “to don the garb” of the War Veterans chairman.
