Opposition urge Zanu PF to come clean on funds used to buy 365 cars

Opposition parties have called on Zanu PF to disclose the source of the estimated $10 million it is using to buy over 350 top-of-the-range vehicles for the 2018 elections campaign.

Speaking to NewsDay MDC-T spokesperson Obert Gutu said:

Zanu PF has got both conventional and unconventional sources of funding. It is clear that the vehicles that the party is purchasing are being funded from a shadowy source, most likely it’s coming from the proceeds of illicit diamond sales.

While People’s Democratic Party secretary-general, Gorden Moyo urged law enforcement agencies to investigate the source of the vehicle funding and said:

Zanu PF has gained its own peculiar reputation of dipping its hands in the national till, including stealing from itself. Its president has a very short moral height and the whole institution has no moral rectitude. It comes as no surprise to us that, while civil servants have no salaries and bonuses, Zanu PF is not embarrassed to display its excesses in Masvingo in the form of a primitive accumulation and gluttonous politics.

Transform Zimbabwe leader, Jacob Ngarivhume said the money used could be part of the missing $15 billion diamond revenue.
