Firebrand Norton legislator Temba Mliswa has accused president Robert Mugabe of protecting Minister of Home Affairs Ignatius Chombo. Mliswa claims that Chombo is corrupt and the most dangerous person in Zanu PF. Mliswa claims that Chombo has been shielded and promoted by Mugabe instead of being investigated.
Speaking at a recent press conference, Mliswa said:
…I personally used to talk to the President about the irregularities of the land issue about Chombo when I was the secretary for lands and when I approached the President when Chombo was deputy lands secretary in the politburo.
