Exiled former ZANU PF Politburo member Jonathan Moyo has praised current ZANU PF Secretary for Administration Obert Mpofu while at the same time denigrating CCC interim Treasurer-General David Coltart.
In a Twitter thread, Moyo hailed Mpofu for getting Zimbabwe approved in the Kimberly Process Certification Scheme (KPSC) and disparaged Coltart for acting like a policeman rather than an educationist during the GNU era.
Moyo made the remarks as he was analysing the impact made by cabinet ministers during the Government of National Unity (GNU). Wrote Moyo:
Arguably, the most impactful GNU ministers (2009-13) were Joseph Made, agriculture; Saviour Kasukuwere, youth, indigenisation & empowerment; Obert Mpofu, mines & mining development; Welshman Ncube, industry & commerce; Tendai Biti, finance & Gorden Moyo, parastatals, PM Office!
Made designed a household-based agricultural initiative which would have assured food security had it not been undermined by command agriculture; Kasukuwere introduced a revolutionary, self-financing model of indigenisation; Mpofu restored Zim’s status in the KPCS for diamonds!
Although his initiative was sabotaged, Ncube recognised the strategic importance of steel and worked tirelessly to revive Zisco; Biti worked well with Gideon Gono to stabilise the economy and Moyo crafted a solid blueprint for restructuring the management of public enterprises!
My good friend Coltart is a policeman, not an educationist by any stretch of the imagination. Of course, donors loved him and were happy to release funds under his watch, all good but that was no policy at all!
