Zimbabwe faces bloodshed if "illegal regime" stays, Mugabe ally says

Mnangagwa to visit Namibia

The Presidential spokesperson, and Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of information Media and Broadcasting Services George Charamba has described the former Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education Professor Jonathan Moyo as a "bitter defeated politician" in response to attacks made by the latter during the interview aired on BBC.

Zimbabwe's ruling Zanu-PF youth league has reportedly claimed that former president Robert Mugabe's nephew Patrick Zhuwao is "plotting sabotage voting" against the party in the forthcoming elections.

Mnangagwa was initially sacked as deputy president by Mugabe just few days before the military on November 14 took over the capital in what it called an operation to weed out "criminal elements" surrounding Mugabe, who had been in power for 37 years.

Trade between Namibia and Zimbabwe generated only N$24 million (about US$1.9 million) in 2016, a situation that President Geingob said was unacceptable.

That was widely seen as a reference to Mugabe's wife Grace and supporters of her apparent desire to succeed the 93-year-old statesman - efforts that riled many in the military establishment.

"Chiwenga, they know only too well that they have come into power via the bullet and not the ballot", Moyo said.

The last time we heard from one Floyd Mayweather Jr ., he was saying that he could fight in UFC if he really wanted to. And I said that he would you know, don't count anything out on him coming over to the UFC, that anything is possible.

"I left Zimbabwe with the help of people who to me are angels because they saved lives", Moyo said.

Moyo also said that the new government under Mnangagwa was an "illegal regime" that had struggled to assert its legitimacy.

"At about 2.30am, about 15 to 26 members of the military special forces stormed my house, with the intent to kill me". The BBC interview was done via a television link from an undisclosed location.

Kasukuwere was the former local government minister and had held the position of political commissar in Zanu-PF.

Since his resignation Moyo and his close allies have escaped into exile, claiming to have escaped assassination attempts by the military.

It's unclear where Moyo is at the moment.
