The Zimbabwe Youth Council (ZYC) has exposed Youth Development, Indigenisation and Economic Empowerment Minister Patrick Zhuwao for conniving with Acie Lumumba to divert funds which were meant for the youth. This information was presented to the Parliamentary portfolio committee on Youth Development, Indigenisation and Empowerment chaired by Gokwe-Nembudziya MP Cde Justice Mayor Wadyajena.
ZYC assistant director for operation, Mr Sungano Chisina alleged that Zhuwao had directed the ZYC to hire Lumumba’s company Cornerstone Pvt Ltd to conduct a workshop last year. Cornerstone reportedly indicated that they would do the work for free only to bill the ZYC $17 600. The money was allegedly for the people who had been hired by Lumumba’s company to facilitate the workshop.
