Political career

Bribing MDC Officials Allegations

In 2021, Jonathan Moyo accused Ncube of bribing MDC officials to join Zanu PF. He dismissed the allegations claiming the officials were joining Zanu-PF because the party had attractive policies.

Writing on Twitter, Moyo said:

"DANIEL MACKENZIE NCUBE, Chairman of NOIC (Pvt) Ltd Board of Directors & Zanu PF Midlands provincial Chairman, is Mnangagwa’s key moneyman for buying defectors from the MDC in the Midlands & Matabeleland provinces. He was recently rebuffed by Abednico Bhebhe, who’s rejoined MDC-A!"

In response, Ncube sent a statement to Nehanda Radio dismissing the allegations and labelled opposition parties "ideologically vacuous opposition parties" which "were going to disintegrate and be blown into smithereens by the rejuvenated Zanu PF under the able command of His Excellency President Mnangagwa."[5]
