Gono denies smuggling bag for “Chinese” woman at airport

The former governor of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe and chairperson of the Special Economic Zones (SEZ) board, Gideon Gono has denied the allegation that he smuggled a “swollen” bag for a Chinese woman at the Harare International Airport customs. The accusation was made by activist Farai Maguwu who said:

…one of the Chinese was holding a swollen handbag. As they approached immigration, Gono took the handbag from that Chinese woman and he passed through the diplomatic counter whilst the Chinese passed through visitors’ counter. When the Chinese had passed the counter, Gono handed her back the handbag.

Gono refuted the allegations saying:

First of all, you say I was coming from South Africa on Sunday; I have never been out of the country for the last two months, so it’s false.

Number two, that I smuggled some Chinese ladies, she is not Chinese she is Singaporean. Furthermore, what you are referring to is this bag here.

The bag is reported to have contained a lot of business documents.
