EXILED former Zanu-PF Politburo member, Jonathan Moyo, has confirmed that he is an MDC – Alliance supporter with a right to support a candidate of his choice in an election.

In tweets he posted following media reports that he and other former Zanu-PF G40 members, bankrolled MDC President Nelson Chamisa's presidential election campaign in 2018, Moyo confirmed flighting some advertisements on behalf of the MDC – Alliance, but only as an ordinary party supporter.

"It's dead propaganda to say "the G40" funded MDC-A. Fact is @EdmundKudzayi, @PatrickZhuwao & me CREATED & FUNDED OUR SUPPORT for the MDC-A like this ad put in the @DailyNewsZim & @NewsDayZimbabwe," Moyo twitted.


Edmund Kudzayi is a former Editor of the State-owned Sunday Mail and ally of Moyo while Patrick Zhuwao is a former Cabinet minister and G40 member who is also in self-exile.

"Another example of the content we created & flighted using our own resources is the YouTube video ad below. We did it not as MDC-A consultants nor its members, which we are not & have not sought to be, but as MDC-A SUPPORTERS with a right to support our choice in an election.


"Yet another example of the content we put together to support the #MDC-A & @nelsonchamisa against #ZanuPF & @edmnangagwa is the video ad below, that we did for airing on ZBC-TV. So we did not bankroll the MDC-A election campaign but we bankrolled our support for the MDC-A!"


"In Zimbabwe some crackpot parties, political upstarts, illiterates, pundits & internet trolls do not understand the basic political & electoral tenet that in an election, it's the voters who choose the candidate & not the candidate who chooses the voters!" Moyo said.

However, Chamisa lost the presidential election to Zanu-PF candidate Emmerson Mnangagwa by a small margin. The main opposition leader has since not accepted the results claiming the poll was rigged by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) on behalf of Mnangagwa.
