Exiled Zanu PF politicians Prof Jonathan Moyo and Patrick Zhuwao have responded to claims that Zimbabwe VP Constantino Chiwenga and his boss Emmerson Mnangagwa are Mozambican and Zambian respectively.

This follows claims by NPF Spokesman Jealousy Mawarire that Chiwenga is of Mozambican extract hence his first name ‘Constantino’.

He also said Zimbabwe President ED Mnangagwa is a Zambian national.

 But Prof Moyo and Zhuwao rushed to the two’s side and clarified that they are actually Zimbabwean.
Wrote Prof Moyo, “It’s false, illegal & unacceptable to say Mnangagwa & Chiwenga are foreigners. They were born in Zimbabwe & contributed immensely to the country’s liberation. A name isn’t a nationality. Besides, it’s not a crime to be a foreigner. People are judged by their deeds, not parentage!”
Robert Mugabe’s nephew Patrick Zhuwao responded on Twitter: “Well said Prof. It is always good to stand on principle even if the principle contradicts or supports perceived allies or adversaries respectively.”
