Harare - Fugitive former Zanu-PF G40 cabal king maker and cabinet minister Professor Jonathan Moyo has launched a salvo at his pursuers, insisting that he is not exiled in Kenya as previously reported, but he is resident on 'Twitter'.  

Media reports earlier indicated the state was hunting Moyo for his continued lambasting of the new government, after Robert Mugabe's ouster in a soft coup in November 2017. 

Mugabe's dispossession translated into Moyo's herculean losses alongside the majority of the G40 cabal - among them Saviour Kasukuwere, while the faction is highly believed to Moyo's own creation meant to elevate Grace Mugabe into power. 

Since the takeover by Lacoste fronted by Emmerson Mnangagwa, Moyo has been pouring his bitterness through Twitter platform. 

His livid rantings have attracted the attention of security apparatus, with some suggesting Moyo must be extracted from his Kenya base to face the music back home.
Jonathan Moyo and Saviour Kasukuwere Remain Evasive 

"This is no PR Coup & no history. It's ambulance-chasing propaganda for the optics of exploiting the poor health of a terminally ill political rival. The propaganda is cynical, crude, desperate & unAfrican. It intrudes into & violates a constitutionally protected right to privacy," Moyo wrote in one of his tweets aimed at the establishment after Mnangagwa visited Morgan Tsvangirai recently. 

However, the political scientist has claimed he is not in Nairobi as widely reported.     

"I'm on Twitter; not in Kenya. It's an open secret that ZanuPF putschists who are insecure in their military coup imagine I'm in Kenya or want me to be in Kenya so they can send their murderous SAS snipers there, after their attempt to assassinate me in Harare on 15 November 2017," Moyo wrote.

Some observes believe it could be someone doing the harm and not Moyo.

"Is he Alive together wth his friend,we cnt rely on tweets,anyone can tweet using his handle,journos hv to dig deeper n investigate whereabts of these pipo espclly those who just tweets bt dnt do voice interviews," said another writer. 

Meanwhile, the Daily Nation revealed that $6 million graft charges against Moyo, allegedly committed in 2000 still stands.  

“In 2001, Mr Moyo was implicated in a corruption scandal involving about $6 million (Sh619.9 million) while he was the programme director in Nairobi for the American-based charity organisation, Ford Foundation.

“The money was meant for a Nairobi-based NGO, the Series on Alternative Research in East Africa Trust, which was founded by political scientist Mutahi Ngunyi,” said the Nation in the report, adding, he is still a wanted man after he fled before investigations were concluded.

Back home, Moyo is wanted for embezzlement of $400 000 from the Zimbabwe Manpower Development (Zimdef) funds. The scandal also implicated his deputy, Dr Godfrey Gandawa, Zimdef chief executive Mr Frederick Mandizvidza and Zimdef principal director (finance) Mr Nicholas Mapute.

Investigators from the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission allege that Prof Moyo and Dr Gandawa are suspected of getting Zimdef to release 100 000 litres of diesel worth $118 500, fuel which was then diverted to the black market. - Additional Reporting from Online sources
