Harare, Zimbabwe: SAPES Books, today announced that the Excelgate authored by Professor Jonathan Moyo will be available on the market and online from the 30th of January 2020. Ibbo Mandaza stated that the delay in availability of the book, was due to complications with the ISBN number which was issued by the National Archives. It is believed that the ISBN issued was fake and as a result the book could not be registered on Amazon. Once this was uncovered only a limited number of books were printed for the launch. A new ISBN number has been obtained and production has resumed. Stock of the book will be available on Amazon from the 30th of January 2020.
Ibbo Mandza further noted that there is a fake 65-page PDF document that is circulating on social media purporting to be a copy of Excelgate, which contains falsified and misleading information. The 65-page PDF document is a watered-down version of the 260-page book, with critical information stripped out, and it’s an attempt by Pro-government agents to thwart the contents of the book.
Excelgate details how the Zimbabwean Defence Forces (ZDF), in a bid to protect and consolidate the gains of the coup, brazenly commandeered the machinery of the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC), particularly its computer network server, corrupted its internal system as well as logistics and illegally changed the route and destination for the collation, compilation and transmission of the result of the 2018 presidential election for purposes of rigging the election in favour of Emmerson Mnangagwa, whom it had imposed as President of Zimbabwe on 24 November 2017.
Pre-Orders of the book can be made at the Sapes Book Store in Harare.
