MOYO DROPS ANOTHER BOMBSHELL, CLAIMS ZANU PF LOOTED $70 MILLION FUNDING 2013 ELECTIONS
Ex minister and ex-Zanu-PF G40 kingpin Jonathan Moyo claims the ruling party looted over $70 million diamond revenue from Chiadzwa and commandeered other State resources to oil its campaign machinery during 2013 elections.
Moyo, who is in self-exile went on to claim that most of the money was used to source party regalia from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and China.
Moyo’s latest utterings came as Parliament is conducting an investigation over the $15 billion missing diamond revenue.
Moyo said Zanu-PF was likely to repeat its plunder of State resources in this year’s election, adding President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s business trip to China last week was also part of the ruling party’s mission to shop for campaign material.
“In 2013, Zanu-PF used diamond revenues and State funds to buy and ship campaign regalia from DRC and China worth over $70 million,” Moyo wrote on Monday.
“ED’s (Mnangagwa’s) $2,3m China trip was to cover up use of State funds to buy and ship from China 15 million T-shirts, 15 million caps and two million cloth wrappers for Junta-PF’s campaign! Zacc [Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission]!”
Moyo’s assertions came after Zanu-PF national commissar Engelbert Rugeje told party supporters in Gwanda last week that the party had bought 15 million T-shirts, 15 million caps and two million cloth wrappers and that some of the material was already in the country.
But Zanu-PF spokesperson and acting Information minister Simon Khaya Moyo yesterday dismissed the former Tsholotsho North legislator’s statements.
“I don’t know about that. He knows better,” he said.
