HIGHER and Tertiary Education Minister Jonathan Moyo has thrown the cat among the pigeons through claims former Zanu PF legislator Larry Mavhima was aiding former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa's alleged coup plot.

According to, Moyo accused Mavhima, former MP for Zvishavane-Runde and top Mnangagwa ally, of distributing a press statement issued Wednesday by the axed VP.

"So, the so-called ED Press Statement issued today, which has a poor scan of his signature, was personally delivered to newsrooms as an advert by Larry Mavhima who chairs the NRZ Board & who fronts for ED at Hanawa Foods.

"This makes Mavhima an accessory to treason!" Moyo wrote on his twitter page.

Mnangagwa was fired by President Robert Mugabe on Monday following persistent accusations by the first family that he was plotting a coup against the Zimbabwean leader.

He has since issued a defiant statement which accused his former boss of capturing Zanu PF and converting it into his personal property and that of his family.

Mnangagwa vowed to resist the move but did not specify how he intended to do so.
