Former Higher Education minister Jonathan Moyo has launched a hashtag titled #KwekweHimJuly30 against President Emmerson Mnangagwa. Mnangagwa had to shift constituencies and run for the Chirumhanzi-Zibagwe seat which was created for him in 2008.
Said Jonathan Moyo, “#JustThinking: If a united Kwekwe did it not once but twice to vote out #EmmersonMnangagwa in 2000 and 2005 with #BlessingChebundo; Zimbabwe can also unite as one grand national union & do a big Kwekwe on Mnangagwa with @nelsonchamisa in 2018! #KwekweHimJuly30.”
Added Moyo, “Don’t be a willing victim of the coup propaganda that the Army didn’t do a coup to give up power in six months. You’ve missed the military’s bogey: Legitimacy, Stupid. They need legitimacy from free, fair & credible elections that Mnangagwa can’t rig or win!#KwekweHimJuly30”
Moyo added, “Mnangagwa is an electoral coward. To get him to flee the 30 July poll to try his luck in Zambia; call Blessing Chebundo for a signal. Twice he defeated Mnangagwa in Kwekwe & caused him to flee to Zibagwe, where his ancestors lived before they moved to Zambia!”
Speaking at a rally to honour the late founding leader of the opposition MDC-T party, Morgan Tsvangirai at Freedom Square today, Chamisa declared that his party was not afraid of elections and dismissed President Emmerson Mnangagwa as a threat.
According to Chamisa, Mnangagwa was not worthy to run against anyone in the MDC-T senior leadership until he manages to defeat Blessing Chebundo, the MDC legislator who twice defeated him in general elections for the Kwekwe parliamentary seat. In the end, Mnangagwa had to shift constituencies and run for the Chirumhanzi Zibagwe seat which was created in 2008.
