The government has distributed to Bulawayo hospitals foodstuff confiscated from former Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko’s trucks at Beitbridge border post by the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA).

The goods which were destined for Mphoko’s Choppies supermarkets were reportedly seized by ZIMRA officials after the retail giant failed to pay duty.

Sources at ZIMRA claim that prior to the November 18 coup, the former vice president had not been paying duty for goods destined for his supermarkets across the country.

The sources told NewZimbabwe.com that some of the impounded goods which include Mayonnaise sauce were distributed to Mpilo, Bulawayo United Hospital (UBH) and Ingutsheni Hospital.

Mphoko is reportedly currently embroiled in a battle for the control of the supermarket chain with his foreign partners.
