In a threat of tweets today, Professor Jonathan Moyo questioned a claim by Hardtalk host Stephen Sackur, that “Ballot papers have been printed.” According to Moyo this should not ordinarily be the case if the candidates and election dates are not known. Moyo has called on Zimbabwe Election Commission (ZEC), the Zim government, the UK Government, and the Hardtalk to explain Sackur’s claim.
There’s a SCANDALOUS claim made in @BBCHARDtalk with @nelsonchamisa which needs a response from #ZEC, #JuntaPF, @BBCHARDtalk & @UKinZimbabwe: HAVE THE BALLOT PAPERS BEEN PRINTED as declared by @stephensackur, when the candidates & election dates are not known? HUGE RIGGING PLOT!
In his series of tweets, Jonathan Moyo also accused the UK government (through its ambassador Catriona Laing) of working in cahoots with the Zimbabwe government to ensure a Mnangagwa victory in the 2018 elections. The UK Embassy in Zimbabwe has denied this.
