Zimbabwe's Moyo says on Twitter he is out of the country

HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe’s Higher Education Minister Jonathan Moyo, one of a number of officials purged from the ruling ZANU-PF party along with President Robert Mugabe, said on Monday he and at least 50 other senior party officials were “outside of the country.”

Former Zimbabwe Minister of Information Jonathan Moyo speaking to journalists outside his home in Tsholotsho town, 150 km west of [Bulawayo] in Zimbabwe March 29, 2005.

Moyo made the comments on his Twitter handle, but the tweet was subsequently deleted. Moyo is one of many ZANU-PF members targeted by the ruling party in the wake of a military coup.
