Gokwe-Nembudziya MP and chair of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Youth and Indigenisation Mayor Justice Wadyajena has come under fire from Some Zanu-PF members, particularly the youth for investigating the distribution and management of the $40 million National Youth Fund (NYF). Wadyajena’s committee has revealed widespread corruption and malfeasance in the distribution and use of the loans.
Zanu PF Manicaland provincial youth chairman Mubuso Chinguno said:
We are worried with the behaviour of Wadyajena, he is behaving like a tsikamutanda (witch-hunter) as he is going around the country exposing the youths. This is in bad taste because the financial sector will lose confidence in us (youths). There are successful cases of our youths who are doing well.
Manicaland Provincial Affairs minister Mandi Chimene also added
The issue of loans, this one (Wadyajena) is one of you, but he is now behaving like he is not one of you. Actually, I contributed for him to be that portfolio chairperson committee position,’’ she said.
But he is now saying that money was looted by the youths. Surely, if we want to look at him from the front and back, did he not also use the money?
