Exiled Mugabe Ally Says Mnangagwa's Government Is 'Illegitimate'

Emmerson Mnangwa

Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa is scheduled to visit Angola on Friday and meet with President Joao Lourenco, said a statement issued by the Angolan President's Civil Affairs Office on Wednesday.

The once powerful politician, who is now a harsh critic of the Mnangagwa led government, spoke to the BBC and narrated the manner in which he fled Zimbabwe in addition to fielding questions on the Mugabe regime and plans of going back home.

Moyo's comments were made during an interview on BBC's HardTalk with anchor Zeinab Badawi, on Thursday morning.

This is the first time that Moyo has appeared in public since the resignation of Mugabe following a military-backed "soft coup" in November.

Muduvira said that Zhuwawo was supposed to "thank government for taking care of his uncle and not confuse Zimbabweans".

Ousted president Mugabe is cited in the court application, as it was his government which presided over the massacres between 1982 and 1987.

"This is in part because our trade patterns have been aligned to service the requirements of former colonial powers and partly because many African countries essentially produce similar goods, mainly agricultural and mineral commodities", Geingob said in a statement delivered during the official opening of the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair previous year.

Both the first lady and Mnangagwa had been vying to replace 93-year-old Robert Mugabe.

Mnangagwa is introducing himself to the regional leaders ahead of general elections in his country later this year.

But Malawi Government spokesperson Nicholas Dausi has said it is not true that Moyo is in the country. "I escaped the net of the military people to be where I am legally".

Meanwhile, former ministers and other ex-Zanu PF officials linked to Grace Mugabe and the G40 faction who are still in the country have faced arrests on corruption charges. "He is suffering from fears of his own making".
