""I am not here as Jonathan Moyo the individual but I am here as a Minister of Information, I am here in my official capacity and in that capacity I should discharge my duty as what the President appointed me to do.?""
When asked how many cases he had instituted against ANZ, Moyo said: ?I can?t remember because they are in the business of defaming people, they are too numerous to remember.?""

More from Moyo
At the end of that month, Moyo issued strict warnings to all journalists to dissuade them from working with any foreign outlets. At a press conference in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe's second largest city, he accused correspondents of foreign newspapers of sending "lying reports" about conditions in the country. He threatened to arrest these journalists saying that there was "enough space in Zimbabwe's prisons for journalists caught dealing with foreign media houses." He went on to say that President Mugabe sees the corrupt financial sector as the administration's main enemy but he - meaning Moyo - knows that "the enemy is the media who use the pen to lie about this country." He added, "such reporters are terrorists."
