Self exiled Former ZANU PF Politiburo member Jonathan has mocked ZANU PF Secretary for administration Obert Mpofu calling him a traumatised political orphan.
“ZanuPF’s National Youth League Assembly sights show a troubled Obert Mpofu whose transition from an Obedient Son to an Orphan has been traumatic. He dared chair the central committee that got the crocodile in and up. Now the crocodile’s jaws are on Mpofu and it wants to chew him up,” Prof Moyo said.
The political fight between Moyo and Mpofu has been raging for years.
In 2017 Moyo attacked Obert Mpofu, calling his comments that the he was working in cahoots with Kasukuwere to destabilise party as reckless, irresponsible, disrespectful and unacceptable.
Moyo took a dig accusing him of throwing his weight around and abusing his power in the Provincial Coordinating Committee (PCC) in Matebeleland North.
“Mpofu abused PCC, as he so often does, in mistaken belief that just because he has a big body he should throw his weight around.
Obert Mpofu believes he is the Zanu PF PCC in Mat North. This rot of his has gone on for too long and too far. Mpofu is a colleague in Politburo, and not my boss. If he does not respect this fact, he must prepare for the consequences.I for one will not allow Obert Mpofu to impersonate King Lobengula, pretending to be Matabeleland North’s centre of power.” Said Moyo then.
Jonathan Moyo said Mpofu’s claim to be the obedient son, were a gimmick used to cover up for his greedy exploits and they have never fooled anyone.
Obert Mpofu chaired the Politiburo meeting that fired Jonathan Moyo and other G40 members.
