Following the ‘ambush’ of President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe by reporters attached to online news platform Sahara Reporters during the Friday, May 29, 2015 inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari, the Zimbabwean Minister of Information, Jonathan Moyo has hit back at the journalists, terming them “brothers and sisters of Boko Haram”.
According to Thisday, a fuming Moyo condemned the actions of the journalists saying: “If Nigerian journalism has come to this, then God help Nigeria since nobody has monopoly over such uncouth misconduct. It is a sad tale of a man biting a dog when journalists make news they should be covering.
“Free countries have rules, including diplomatic courtesy, not the display of Boko Haram journalism. Of course, those are human beings, but are they journalists or Boko Haram?”
