The removal of Robert Mugabe as President of Zimbabwe in November 2017 led to several Mugabe loyalists going underground.

The most prominent of these is probably Jonathan Moyo – until recently a cabinet minister, key ally and close adviser to Robert Mugabe and his wife Grace.

He has been described as one of the most hated men in Zimbabwe and is wanted in the country on corruption charges. Jonathan Moyo is now in hiding in self-imposed exile and says his family is being harassed and that his life is under threat.
