Tsvangirai clarifies rumours he received monetary assistance from Mugabe

Posted by Tayana

Tsvangirai through his spokesperson, Luke Tamborinyoka, wrote a letter to NewsDay, in which he sought to clarify issues around his interactions with Mugabe, following reports by Zimbabwe Independent, that Mugabe’s government had given him $70 000 to cover his health costs.

However, Tsvangirai claimed that Mugabe owed him his pension for the time he served in government during the Government of National Unity. Former Cabinet minister Paul Mangwana, who was a co-chairperson of the Parliamentary Select Committee that crafted the new Constitution and law expert Lovemore Madhuku said legally Tsvangirai had no right to claim for a pension since his position was a temporary one.
