Malawi government has refuted reports of granting former Zimbabwean Minister of Higher Education Jonathan Moyo political asylum.
Minister of Information and Communications Technology Nicholas Dausi in Malawi has dismissed the report as “fake news” .
“He is not here in Malawi [and] there has been no granting of political asylum,” Dausi said.
Earlier this week one of the local media in Malawi claimed that Moyo is in the country and would interview him.
Moyo who has been missing in Zimbabwe since the 15th of November coup in Zimbabwe made a surprise appearance on “BBC’s HARD talk” with a pre-recorded interview on Thursday.
His appearance on BBC ended wide spread speculations that he may have been captured by the Zimbabwean authorities after Kenya disputed housing him when everyone thought he was in that country.
Soon after the interview, speculations suddenly changed to indicate that he was in Malawi with no evidence provided for the assertion.
Moyo has been making frequent social media Twitter postings and telling anyone looking for him to find him on Twitter vehemently refusing to disclose his whereabouts.
Sources within the Zimbabwe government security sector said that Zimbabwean government has written the Kenyan government to send Moyo back to Zimbabwe because it believes the former minister is in that country besides the country’s dinial
Other sources have also indicated that Moyo could be in the Seychelles or Madagascar.
