ZLHR receives funds from the United States to finance subversive activities?


A senior Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) official, Mr Macdonald Moyo, reportedly admitted yesterday that the organization receives direct funding from the United States government to finance subversive activities aimed at advancing regime change in the country.

Mr. Moyo was making a presentation at the 73rd Ordinary Session of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACHPR) and the Commission’s 35th Commemoration in Banjul, The Gambia, yesterday.

An impeccable source, who was present at the meeting, told the Sunday Mail that Mr Moyo made the admission during an open session to civil society organisations, before falsely claiming that the government was also receiving funds the United States.

The Sunday Mail could not get a comment from him at the time of printing.

“The government of Zimbabwe gets money from the same source, but when we get money from the United States, they don’t want (that),” Mr Moyo said, according to the source.

The source added that Mr. Moyo’s presentation was interrupted midway by the President of ACDH, Mr. Remy Ngoy Lumbu. Mr. Lumbu pointed out that Mr. Moyo’s comments had nothing to do with the subject under discussion – economic rights.

“The committee was discussing issues relating to economic rights and that’s when the session was opened up to non-governmental organizations to contribute to the debate,” the source said.
