Former cabinet minister Jonathan Moyo says he almost quit his post between December 2014 and November 2017. Moyo made these revelations on Twitter, claiming that the military intervention which removed former president Robert Mugabe in November 2017 had been in the offing for some time. Moyo said
And on the first day of the month of November, whose ‘Mbudzi Curse’ was inscribed by Rhodesia’s UDI on the month’s 11th day in 1965 and by the coup that was not a coup on the month’s 15th day in 2017, it bears repeating once again that coups beget one another. Camera rolling… One day, maybe sooner rather than later, your fairy-tale will be sobered by the discovery of the excruciatingly painful and tragic reality of the time… For now, just know that the period 1 Dec 2014 to 24 Nov 2017 was hell. On 8 Nov 2017, I drafted a resignation letter. I wanted out.
