I CANNOT WAIT FOR MY DAY IN COURT : JONSO

Former Higher Education Minister, Professor Jonathan Moyo says he cannot wait to have his day in court. But he wanted to face his accusers in a neutral country.

" I have never been afraid of being arrested by a competent constitutional authority with the constitutional powers of arrest.

The record will show that I have always challenged through the legal process Mnangagwa’s use of his well-known political cronies like Goodson Nguni to abuse the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (Zacc) to harass and arrest Mnangagwa’s perceived political opponents.

Nguni is not a law enforcement official. He is Mnangagwa’s henchman dating back to their Zambia days and an alleged fugitive from justice in South Africa.

Just like the sun will rise tomorrow, it’s not whether, but when the wheels of justice will catch up with Mnangagwa’s use of Nguni to illegally harass and arrest Mnangagwa’s political opponents.
In the wee hours of November 15, 2017, some 15 heavily armed soldiers shot their way into my home and into every room in the house with the manifest intent to kill me.

By the grace of God, my family and I had vacated the house, but the trail of military destruction they left behind speaks for itself and I can’t wait to have my day in court, not just in Zimbabwe when justice is restored but internationally, about what the military did at my house on November 15, 2017.

Only idiots think what the military did at my house on that day was an attempt to effect a lawful arrest and that, given what happened, I should subject myself to the coup government and expect justice.

The coup minutes are clear that they wanted to kill and not arrest me. So, no, I’m not afraid of Mnangagwa’s henchmen like Nguni. With the evidence that’s now available, including affidavits and coup minutes, it would be great to engage Mnangagwa’s henchmen in an extradition hearing in a neutral country where the rule of law is a reality.

I’m itching to meet them in a competent open court under the rule of law. As for your supposition of Zanu PF winning the next elections, I don’t see how a party that died after it humiliated its founding leader, President Robert Mugabe, in a bloody military coup can win any election. So, no worries about Zanu PF winning an election as that will not happen.

He was speaking to the Standard.
