Prominent journalist and filmmaker, Hopewell Chin’ono has claimed that a member of the ZANU PF politburo told him that Sakunda boss, Kuda Tagwirei is the one who bought all the cars ZANU PF has. The member also claimed that Tagwirei is providing the party with fuel and is also the one paying their salaries.
Posting on microblogging site, Twitter, Chin’ono said:
A ZANUPF politburo member has confirmed to me that all their cars were bought by Kuda Tagwirei, and that he also pays their salaries, and provides fuel to them.
In other words, ZANUPF has been captured by a cartel King! This confirms what the Prosecutor General said earlier!
The remarks are said when the politburo has recently suspended Youth League deputy secretary, Lewis Matutu and Political Commissar, Godfrey Tsenengamu for violating party code of conduct after they named Tagwirei at a press conference as the cartel bleeding the country.
Tagwirei was also in the news recently after Vice President Constantino Chiwenga revealed in his court papers that the businessman was the one who bought him the luxurious cars he has, a gesture that was seen as a purchase of favours from the former army boss.
Meanwhile, the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission has announced that it has started investigating Tagwirei on corruption allegations that were raised by him by the ZANU PF Youth League.
ZACC’s seriousness in fighting corruption has since been questioned after Prosecutor General, Kumbirai Hodzi this Monday startled the nation by alleging that the Commission was one of the institutions protecting cartels in the country.
