Higher Education minister Jonathan Moyo’s email was hacked yesterday, at a time the beleagured Zanu PF’s Vice President Emmerson Mngangagwa is preparing his own dossier to responding to damning allegations made against him by Moyo to the cabinet.
The suspicious link to Mnangagwa is inevitable as his whole political career lies on his ability to effectively and diligently respond to a plethora of allegations that will see him face prison or expelled from Zanu PF.
Moyo has since reported the matter to the police.
Moyo took to Twitter to announce the alleged breach and posted a message from Gmail warning him about the incident.
“A criminal has or criminals have, hacked and hijacked my Gmail account this afternoon,” he tweeted. “I’ve reported the crime to all relevant authorities.”
The local weekly The Standard also reports that the hackers reportedly later sent the minister’s personal assistant an email boasting that they had seen everything they needed to see. They asked the PA to give Moyo his new password.
Moyo last month presented a dossier at a Zanu PF politiburo meeting, which he claimed showed that Mnangagwa had an elaborate plan to seize power from President Robert Mugabe.
He accused the VP of allegedly committing several crimes, including forcing a former television personality Godfrey Majonga to jump from a second floor of a Harare building after they clashed over a woman.
Mugabe told a recent Zanu PF rally that Mnangagwa had also prepared his own dossier to expose Moyo. otherd
