Harare – Higher and Tertiary Education minister Jonathan Moyo has handed himself over to the Zimbabwe anti-corruption commission after weeks of heckling and mudslinging in relation to the ZIMDEF scandal.
Moyo has hitherto rejected ZACC overtures to interview him and only yesterday released a statement arguing ZAAC was illegally appointed and being used by VP Mnangagwa.
According to sources, he will appear in court tommorow morning, facing charges of criminal abuse of office, misappropriation of funds, theft, and a litany of other charges.
It is believed Jonathan Moyo will have his charges read out to him by prosecutors at the Magistrate’s Court, thereafter he will remanded out of custody on $5,000 USD bail.
Political analysts have said this is the effective end of G40, a faction largely responsible for ousting former Vice President Joice Mujuru, then attempting to violently remove Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
The faction, believe to be led by Moyo has been reeling, only months after they called Mnangagwa a ‘sitting duck’.
Since that time, they trump card, Grace Mugabe, has abandoned them, having realised her allies were stealing funds in her name, abusing her position and influence, and using her to drive a wedge between her husband and his most loyal cadre, the Vice President.
According to inside sources, Minister Saviour Kasukuwere is next in-line, facing similar charges of graft..
Sources in government have slammed Moyo and Kasukuwere’s position, of blaming Mnangagwa, saying that it is actually the President who said he was tired of corruption and wanted them arrested.
Moyo yesterday threatened to effectively sue the President, by suing his first Vice President, and his spokesperson.
