Jonathan Moyo, a Zanu-PF ..., 3 Nov 2011 [cached]
Jonathan Moyo, a Zanu-PF politburo member, told Finweek in August that as the youngest member of the cabinet, Kasukuwere had brought fresh impetus to indigenisation."He has been given a serious mandate," he said.
Moyo added, however: "But the jury is still out on him, although he has already shown some skills people didn't think he had. He's truly in the category of so-called Young Turks."
But who really is Kasukuwere and where did he come from; moreover, how did he rise through the ranks?
Kasukuwere originally hails from the Marondera district where his family were involved in the liberation war in the Seventies. He attended the University of Berlin before joining Zimbabwe's Central Intelligence Organisation, where he served for nine years.
In 1995, he joined the president's office before being elected to parliament in 2000. He owns a trucking business but keeps these private interests separate from his political career.

Zimbabwe chief government spokesman Jonathan Moyo responded by saying Britain and Australia wanted to keep "cricket white" by pulling out of matches there.
"If the British and the Australians want to keep cricket as a white and colonial sport, then they should do so alone because we are not interested in their rubbish," Moyo told the official Herald newspaper.
"This is obviously not about safety and security, it is just political mumbo-jumbo," Moyo added.

Information, Media and Broadcasting ... [cached]
Information, Media and Broadcasting Services Minister Professor Jonathan Moyo has dismissed as fable, claims by the private media that fresh polls loom as Zanu-PF seeks to recall 100 legislators from Parliament.
In a statement last night, Prof Moyo said no legislators would be recalled because the new Constitution of Zimbabwe did not have such a provision.
Prof Moyo said statements by NewsDay quoting MDC-T spokesperson Mr Obert Gutu on his blog were mischievous and bent on causing alarm and despondency.
"For this provision to take effect, a Member of Parliament should be expelled or resign from his or her political party, said Prof Moyo, adding there was nothing of the sort happening, or about to happen.
He said it was unfortunate that some "spent political forces" had now jumped onto the bandwagon of the false claims with a view to finding political relevance from these reports.
"It is therefore false and preposterous for anybody to now claim that up to 100 Zanu-PF Members of Parliament are facing expulsion from the party, which is the only circumstance under which their seats in Parliament would become vacant. Not only is the claim false and preposterous but also the alleged number of 100 is a thumb-suck figure conjured up with no basis on the ground by some very desperate political day-dreamers."
Prof Moyo said the reason for fabricating the story was to create an impression that sacked VP Mujuru had about 100 legislators who backed her.
However, the fired VP even failed to secure a Central Committee seat at Congress as she was disowned by people in her former constituency Mt Darwin in Mashonaland Central.
"But that's claptrap. Anyone who believes it would believe anything. No individual, let alone a former and helpless Vice President who is still trying to figure out what really happened well after the fact, owns any Zanu-PF Member of Parliament."
Prof Moyo added that "Those among us who are taking one too many of their Christmas libations have no business using that as an excuse to disturb the peace by coming up with unfounded claims that have no basis in our Constitution or political practice."
Cde Mujuru was fired from Government alongside other ministers and deputies for reneging on their Government mandate. They were said to have been expending their energy and time on graft and factional politics where they sought to topple President Mugabe through unconstitutional means.
Prof Moyo described as "understandable but misplaced" calls by some Zanu PF Provincial Coordinating Committes to expel some MPs alligned to Cde Mujuru which he said were nowhere near 100.
He said this sentiment had since been addressed by Zanu PF's National Political Commissar Cde Saviour Kasukuwere.
"….It is common cause that no Zanu PF Member of Parliament faced expulsion from the party ahead of the 6th National People's Congress on account of the so-called Mujuru issues that emerged prior to the congress earlier this month," he said.
