Self-exiled former ZANU PF Politburo member Jonathan Moyo has blamed CCC leader Nelson Chamisa for the alleged online attacks targeting his family, including his late daughter by party activists.
Moyo, who is believed to be in Kenya, said Chamisa’s failure to stop his supporters from attacking him on social media proves that he supports the abuse.
Writing on Twitter, Moyo claimed that Chamisa rejected all efforts to address the alleged online abuse targetting him. Said Moyo:
While I am sad, I cannot continue to respond to each and all of them. I am heartened by the deluge of DMs asking for the reason for the crude slurs I get from Chamisa’s supporters, which reflect deep-seated hatred, as they have also targeted my sister and my late daughter!
The reason for the slurs I am getting is Chamisa himself. While he feigns ignorance and appears to be silent amid the slurs, Nelson has in fact used his seeming silence as a cover to fan and fuel the slurs. He has rebuffed all efforts to get him to address the slurs!
Moyo and Chamisa, then leading the MDC Alliance, seemed to have been in good books, with Moyo going as far as offering to train 40 000 MDC Alliance election agents to avoid rigging in favour of ZANU PF.
Moyo insists that he never sought to join the MDC Alliance, adding that he stopped supporting CCC in February following the party’s rally in Harare. He said:
On my part, I never sought to join MDC, given its treacherous ideology. In November 2021, I told Chamisa both by phone and in writing, that he was no longer supportable.
I thus could not seek to join Chamisa’s no ideology, no values, no constitution and no structure CCC.
I stopped supporting CCC after its Zimbabwe Grounds #yellowSunday rally in February. I cannot support a political party or a social movement whose ideology and values I do not know or agree with.
Political parties are ideologically based, and social movements are driven by values!
