Moyo after my bacon: Mawarire

HARARE - Jealousy Mawarire, the journalist who was mired in controversy ahead of last year’s disputed elections, has penned another hard-hitting opinion piece accusing Information minister Jonathan Moyo Moyo of allegedly working to tarnish his image and that of the intelligence services.

The Centre for Elections and Democracy in Southern Africa (Cedsa) founder unexpectedly dragged President Robert Mugabe to court last year, forcing the election to take place before critical reforms had been put in place.

Mawarire also accuses Moyo of manipulating senior editorial staff at Zimpapers — publishers of The Herald, The Sunday Mail and The Chronicle — “to create dirty stuff to try and tarnish my image and that of the security sector by repeating ... allegations that my organisation... Cedsa was a creation of the Central Intelligence Organisation”.

“Among other things, Moyo resolved to create dirty stuff to try and tarnish my image and that of the security sector by repeating Roy Bennett and Baba Jukwa’s allegations that my organisation, was a creation of the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO),” he said in his latest unsolicited article delivered to the Daily News yesterday.

“The sources added that Moyo also made spurious allegations that my opinion piece was published in the Daily News because the paper was fronting Vice President Joice Mujuru’s interests via the CIO and that someone within the top echelons in the organisation had written the piece not me.

“While the reasons for Moyo’s hallucinations may be varied, the objectives for my court application are very clear in my founding affidavit and the many media interviews I gave during the time,” he said among many other allegations.

“It is for this reason that Moyo should be reminded that we know he has unfinished business with President Mugabe and his pretence to be a loyal servant of the president does not find any traction with some of us.

“Moyo’s behind-the-scenes scheming has been on-going for some time, and is informed by his hatred for both President Mugabe and Vice President Joice Mujuru whom he sees as a spoiler to his regime change plot.

“Moyo demonstrated, in 2007, that he hates both the President and his deputy...,” Mawarire adds. The controversial journalist has also challenged Moyo to respond to his allegations.

Tibvire apo Mawarire, u first wanted the elections to go on thinking ZANU PF would lose , and of coz you were getting the funds from Ma Mujuru and co, later you realised it was a big mistake, and you are trying to hoodwink the nation by attacking the Professor, the only good thing is that Jonathan Moyo will never respond to a bootlicker who has been singing for his supper from the corrupt dotito woman. Moyo is just too smart for small men like you, you are irrelevant now, you belong to a team of very dull schemers.

To HELL with you MAWARIRE! Yes you were used in your blind push for the 2013 elections without the necessary reforms.You would have better pushed for electoral reforms than the sham 2013 elections.Leave J Moyo alone.He did not appoint himself a minister.Talk to Mugabe himself who appointed Jonathan Moyo. Where is JM's problem?

Its so sad and funny that the Zaka boy called Jealous Mawarire a nonentity in my own interpretation can attack Jona. Mawarire doesnt even have a tetnth of the charisma nd intelligence that Jona has. Many have seen Mawarire struglling with his first BA degree at the UZ and where the hell on earth hsa he become intelligent to challenge a man like Jona. Truth is now surfacing that when you forced the 31st July elections you wre just a bucking puppy in front of Big guys. Ibvapo Mwawarire.

but the point still remains that moyo is scheming against the president while pretenting to be helping him. he has expressed that before and joined the party for that reason. he is the architect behind this messy situation. he is using his position as a media guru to drum up charges against the vp fully aware that she has enormous support both from government and the grass roots. his idea is to cause the party to implode. if this is allowed to happen, moyo will be the happiest man in zim politics.

People like Mawarire cannot be trusted. His actions will have you agree with allegations that he is a CIO operative. So, that being the case there is therefore no truth in everything he says besides trying to influence actions.
