Mugabe Party boys laying low as ZIMRA Declares WAR On Big Spenders
Last week the “Presidential Powers (Temporary Measures) (Amendment of the Money Laundering and Proceeds of Crime Act and Exchange Control Act) Regulations, 2018”, which empowers government to seize assets of people who fail to disclose the source of their wealth, was gazetted.
In no time, flamboyant businessman Genius “Ginimbi” Kadungure was nabbed for tax evasion over a period of nine years.
It is alleged that he owes the tax offices at least US$22m.
Another flashy businessman Wicknell Chivayo was also mailed on allegations of bribery.
Enter the Mugabe boys, known for running outrageous alcohol tabs and showing off their flashy lifestyle each time they could.
Chatunga, Robert and Russell are reported to be keeping a low profile, spending most of their time in South Africa while some ‘tenderpreneurs’ have also fled the country fearing the arrests currently under way.
“These guys [new government] can pick up anyone just like that. Even if you can prove yourself later, you will spend time behind bars because you have been leading a flashy life. Most of us are dealers and obviously there’s no straight path in our trade and, to be honest, in the Zimbabwe situation no legitimate business can stay afloat without cutting corners because corruption is all over,” said one dealer, who has since set up base in Johannesburg until tempers cool.
Many of the “hustlers” whose lifestyles attract probes are allegedly involved in smuggling fuel, gas, minerals and getting government tenders controversially.
