Professor Jonathan Moyo has alleged that the Zimbabwe military was behind the expulsion of Minister of Health Obadiah Moyo.

Moyo added that the Minister  was fronting First Lady Auxilia Mnangagwa.

Said Moyo, "It's the military that has ousted Obadiah Moyo; they wanted him out ever since. But he fronted for Auxillia Mnangagwa and her twins; Sean and Collins, owners of the US$60m."

Minister Moyo was fired through a letter signed by Cabinet secretary, Misheck Sibanda, which read, "Please be advised that His Excellency the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, Cde E. D. Mngangagwa, has in terms of Section 340, subsection (1), paragraph (f) as read with section 104, subsection (1) of the Constitution of Zimbabwe, removed Dr. Obadiah Moyo from the office of Cabinet Minister with immediate effect for conduct inappropriate for a Government Minister."

Moyo was arrested for his dealings with Drax International LLC, Drax Consult SAGL and Papi Pharma, companies prosecutors claim were illegally awarded contracts worth US$60 million by the health ministry without a competitive tender process.
