‘Mandiwanzira Slams Biti For Fund Grabbing’
Zimbabwean politician and Minister of Information Communication Technology Supa Mandiwanzira has reportedly blamed former Finance Minister Tendai Biti for allegedly stifling ICT growth in the country by diverting Universal Services Fund (USF) to other areas which had nothing to do with their primary purpose.
According to reports, Mandiwanzira said since being appointed into his portfolio post 2013, he has made sure the funds were returned back to their proper use and that the opening of 250 information centers across the country was testimony enough.
While officially opening the Nyanga Information Center, funded through USF under telecoms regulator, Postal and Telecommunication Regulatory Authority (POTRAZ) Mandiwanzira said:
“We are transparent on the use of Universal Services Fund”
“Most of you remember during inclusive government, then Finance Minister Tendai Biti raided USF and over $40 million was grabbed by Treasury.
“Biti deployed the money in other areas that had nothing to do with prescribed responsibility of the fund.”
