Zimbabwe’s former education minister has claimed in an interview with SABC that President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government is “harassing” former president Robert Mugabe’s family “on a daily basis”.
Mugabe, who was ousted from power in November, was last seen in public when he visited a Singapore hospital in December during a trip for a medical check-up.
The soon to be 94-year-old ex-president was seen leaving a lift in Gleneagles Hospital in downtown Singapore, wearing a white shirt and black trousers, and accompanied by eight people.
Moyo said that the “military junta” under president Mnangagwa was targeting and abusing the nonagenarian’s family.
“He [Mnangagwa] is actually doing the opposite. They are actually harassing the president’s family on a daily basis,” Moyo said.
The SABC said in a report that Moyo also warned that “a civil war is brewing in that country”.
According to New Zimbabwe.com, the former Mugabe minister chided the African Union (AU) and the regional body SADC for backing an “illegitimate regime”.
