The big debate around Zimbabwe has been the question around what appeared to be impactful change by President Mnangagwa’s cabinet.
Zimbabwean Presidential candidate Dr Moyo says that there are lessons to be drawn, but the starting point shouldn’t be the cabinet.
The starting point should be the actions of the army and whether we as the citizens really understood what should have happened and what was justified.— Dr Nkosana Moyo, Zimbabwean presidential candidate
The army, arguably, could say that constitutionally, they have an obligation to protect the nation, says Moyo. However, the starting point was an infighting issues within a particular ruling party he adds.
The army, in that circumstance should have told the Government to get its act together.— Dr Nkosana Moyo, Zimbabwean presidential candidate
Dr Moyo says that the army shouldn’t have involved themselves in who should be president. He adds that their responsibility should have been around vocalising that Mugabe was putting the security of the state at risk.
The army over-reached and virtually gave instructions to the ruling party as to how it should run its affairs.— Dr Nkosana Moyo, Zimbabwean Presidential candidate
