'Kids with Zanu-PF parents are more Zanu-PF than their parents,' says Jonathan Moyo

EXILED former Cabinet minister Jonathan Moyo has opined that many grown-up kids with Zanu-PF parents are more Zanu-PF than their parents.

Prof Moyo said this on his Twitter page.

"AN UNTOLD but deep seated sociological truth about Zimbabwe today is that many grown up kids with ZanuPF parents are more ZanuPF than their parents. Therefore, Zimbabwe does not only need new leaders but it needs a Martin Luther King Jr. or a Kenneth Kaunda. God bless everyone!"




Moyo served as Information Minister 2000 to 2005 and again from 2013 to 2015 before moving to the ministry of Higher and Tertiary Education during former president Robert Mugabe's reign.

He fled the country at the height of the 2017 military coup which ousted Mugabe after he had become a prime target by the army.


He has been roundly blamed for spearheading the enactment of draconian laws such as the Rhodesia-styled Public Order and Security Act (POSA), the Information and Protection of Privacy Act  (AIPPA), the Broadcasting Services Act (BSA) (2001) and the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (Commercialisation) Act (2003), which led to hundreds of job losses.

But posting on his Twitter account Tuesday, an remorseful Moyo said he regrets ever doing so.

"As I said on 3 Aug 2021 on #TwitterSpaces with @daddyhope, (Hopewell Chin'ono), I take full responsibility for all the policies and laws implemented under my watch in Information and Higher Education," he wrote.

"I apologise for any bad and unintended consequences of these policies and laws on any person or group."
