"Puppeteer Directs, Puppet Implements", Jonathan Moyo Speaks On CCC Shadow Cabinet

Self-exiled former ZANU PF Politburo member Jonathan Moyo says the appointment of a shadow cabinet by Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) leader Nelson Chamisa on Friday shows that the opposition party is a puppet of the West.

On Friday, Chamisa appointed his first ever shadow cabinet under his newly constituted party despite having no formal structures.

This comes after Professor of World Politics at SOAS, University of London, Stephen Chan, who met Chamisa during his recent visit to Zimbabwe, urged the opposition party to name a shadow cabinet because “certainly the West NEEDS to know WHO is in the front bench… of what should be projected as a government-in-waiting”.

Posting on Twitter this Saturday, Moyo argued that by naming a shadow cabinet, Chamisa was simply doing the West’s bidding. He said:

Puppeteer directs, puppet implements. @DrStephenChan told them publicly here on @Twitter that the West wants their structures in Parliament, and they obliged within four days. Terrible optics. This kind of display of puppetry is as unfortunate as it is concerning!

CCC deputy spokesperson Gift Siziba told NewsDay on Friday that the appointment of a shadow cabinet had nothing to do with establishing formal structures but the party was only following Parliament rules. Siziba said:

Parliament requested us to deploy legislators that would work with specific ministries. This has been the tradition.

That’s why we have deployed 19 of them to be working with Parliament’s specific line ministries.

In terms of structures, the party is not yet launched. Once we set a date for the launch, we will announce it.

We are building the movement from below. Our focus at the moment is on how we register young people to vote and mobilise society towards change

I don't think Kenya has a mental health institution, he should have been admitted for mental illness. But I believe he is just pretending coz he keeps attacking one person. He must stop behaving like a fool.

Well, Jonso, CCC has just done what you have been advocating for but your critique seems to be taking a high gear now...why? ...because so and so of world politics has met Chamisa? If you want to join CCC you are welcome like an ordinary member just like Thoko has done

As usual the Proff is right but the small minded bandwagon of brainwashed cult hero worshipping so called CCC supporters will condemn him.You are now on the road to creating those structures that Proff has been telling you about all along, but you need to be told by your Bri**** masters first before doing the obvious. No one in his right mind votes for such idiocy. My vote is safe with Zanu PF.
Vote CCC at your own peril, nyika inoswera yaenda.

MASVINGO -The Minister of State for Masvingo, Ezra Chadzamira shocked people gathered at a soil and water conservation launch day when he told civil servants that they should work with Zanu PF because it is the party that is paying them so that they can eat and go to the toilet.

Chadzamira was speaking at Bengo homestead in Masvingo rural Ward 11 on Friday last week at a function organised by the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Fisheries’ department of mechanisation.

He left his audience shell-shocked.

He warned civil servants who are not allegiant to the ruling party that they would soon be fired. He was particularly irked by Agritex officers who he accused of not cooperating with the ruling party.

“Civil servants must know that they are working for a ZANU PF Government and it is the one that makes them able to visit the toilet,” said Chadzamira.

The gathering had civil servants from different Government Departments including the Police.

He promised civil servants that this time they will also be included on social welfare programmes as Government is aware that they are also hungry.

“No one should be left out in the Government food programmes even civil servants because they are also hungry” said

Like I said before, find relevance in making our lives better rather pursuing a path which leads to a dead or deadly end. You do not own political science.

We should be wary of Jonathan, his level of frustration will only take him to the grave through suicide. He cant accept the fact that he is no longer in control of anything Zimbabwean like he used to ..controlling state media as if its his grandmother's property kkkk Jonah its over my brother.
