The military coup against former Preaident Robert Mugabe was his then deputy, Emmerson Mnangagwa’s attempt to preserve cartel interests, the exiled former cabinet minister Jonathan Moyo has said.

Jonso, as he is affectionately called, accused Mnangagwa of being the creator of cartels that have led to the economy losing billions of dollars through both looting and open corruption.

He said Mnangagwa staged the November 2017 coup to preserve the interests of that network.  He said “the cartel was created by Emmerson Mnangagwa and his cronies during the Mugabe era and Mnangagwa carried out a military coup that ousted Mugabe not only to maintain the cartel but also to expand it in order to line up his pockets and those of his cronies.”
