First Lady of Zimbabwe fingered in Corruption Scandal
Zimbabwe’s first lady, Auxillia Mnangagwa is reportedly running a hire car company which does not have its own cars.
The allegations were made by Freeman Chari a Zimbabwean and opposition MDC activist based in the United States who alleges that the first lady’s underhand dealings forced retired army brigadier Vela Moyo to resign last year.
The allegations come when her son, Collins Mnangagwa has been linked with a controversial company known as Drax International which supplied medical equipment to the Ministry of Health and Child Care at ridiculously exorbitant prices.
We present Chari’s full Twitter thread below.
If you dig you will find more. For example, Auxillia runs a car hire company. The company has no cars of its own. The govt forwards cars to her company from DDF etc. She then sub-lease the cars back to other govt dept & gets paid.
Sometime last year a Retired Army Brig or so from Matebeleland was fired from Min Of Finance because he refused to forward $2 million to her as she was saying she needed it for her travel to USA.
The guy was fired because the only forex that was available was for a UNDP program involving prisons. He paid prisons. Following day, he found his office locked and he was demoted and posted to Plumtree. He resigned. I now leave this in the hands of investigative journalists.
Recent reports of corruption have triggered doubts in President Mnangagwa’s sincerity in fighting corruption in the country.
Meanwhile, government officials and the ruling ZANU PF say the arrest of two serving ministers, Obadiah Moyo and Prisca Mupfumira is indicative of a president who does not tolerate corruption.
Others are however sceptical of the arrests saying they will be released, as usual.
