Self-exiled former ZANU PF minister Jonathan Moyo says the appointment of a shadow cabinet by Citizens Coalition for Change leader Nelson Chamisa shows that the party is a puppet of the West.

Posting on Twitter, Moyo said that by naming a shadow cabinet, Chamisa is simply abiding by the West’s rules.

“Puppeteer directs, puppet implements. @DrStephenChan told them publicly here on @Twitter that the West wants their structures in Parliament, and they obliged within four days. Terrible optics. This kind of display of puppetry is as unfortunate as it is concerning!”

Chamisa recently appointed his first ever shadow cabinet despite having no formal structures in the party.
