Exiled former ZANU PF politburo member Jonathan Moyo on Thursday said the majority of Zimbabweans neither belong to nor do they support ZANU PF and it was “existing on borrowed time; because it has no future”.
Moyo, who fled the country in November 2017 after a military coup that ousted late former president Robert Mugabe claimed that ZANU PF exists today as a tool of the military. He said:
The fact that the majority of Zimbabweans are not members of ZANU PF and that they do not want to join it today or tomorrow does not mean they don’t exist.
Quite the contrary, the majority of Zimbabweans can see and they know that. The majority of Zimbabweans neither belong to nor do they support ZANU PF; they have no wish or desire to join it today or tomorrow.
While a party that is at war with the majority can exist today as a military tool but, the writing on the wall is clear, ZANU PF is existing on borrowed time; because it has no future.
He added that people like Kudzanai Chipanga, who were readmitted by ZANU PF on Wednesday, have decided to return to a graveyard whose impending demise is certain.
Moyo, Chipanga and others were allegedly members of the G40 faction when factionalism within the ruling party was at its peak before the coup.
While some of the G40 movers fled into exile following the putsch, others have chosen to return to the party as mere card-carrying members.
