Moyo too scared of jail: Mliswa

FIREBRAND independent Norton legislator Temba Mliswa has chided Higher and Tertiary Education minister Jonathan Moyo saying he is too scared of prison.

Mliswa said this following the appeal by Moyo at the Constitutional Court (ConCourt) over fraud allegations levelled against him by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (Zacc).

This, the outspoken MP said, was a clear sign that the Tsholotsho North legislator was scared of jail.

“He (Moyo) is so scared, so petrified that he is already obstructing the course of justice. He goes to the ConCourt for him not to be arrested,” Mliswa told journalists here over the weekend.

“He is like a little boy, I have never seen a man who is so afraid of prison, you create so many fights and you have so many skeletons in the wardrobe.

“These are public funds that you abused. It’s not the faction of Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa, the public want their money.

“We don’t care about factions in Zanu PF what we want to know is what happened to the public funds,” Mliswa said.

As a result, Mliswa once again emphasised that when he meets Moyo in Parliament, he will effect a citizen’s arrest on him.

“No wonder why I say if I see him in Parliament, I am going to bring handcuffs and do a citizen’s arrest. The good thing about Parliament is that he does not bring his body guards.

“Physically, he is no match. I will deal with him . . .”

As if that was not enough, Mliswa took a swipe at Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko whom he described as a confused corrupt leader.

“We have a vice president who supports corruption, twice he has been obstructing the course of justice, and what type of a leader is that?”

Meanwhile, Mliswa chose to take a different route when he said demonstrations were not effective in pushing the President Robert Mugabe-led government out of power.

“We do believe in activism that’s their choice but we believe in taking part in the elections.

“We believe in bringing change through the ballot, through a constitutional process, you cannot remove Mugabe and Zanu PF by demonstrating because he is there until 2018,” he said. —Jeffrey Muvundusi in BULAWAYO
