Promise Mkwananzi the leader of activist social movement #Tajamuka/Sesijikile has been accused of diverting funds meant for the movement into his own pockets. The accusations are coming from some of the international funders of the group. One of the donors, who declined to reveal his identity told NewsDay:
For some time, we provided online support, advice and financial assistance to Tajamuka.
We said #ThisFlag was the soul of Zimbabwe and Tajamuka was the action that resulted from the suffering of the soul. To support action on the ground there were several activities. To finance activities and #Tajamuka members we gave money to Promise who was, in turn, was supposed to distribute to people on the ground. We thought the money was getting to the people, but it was not so. That money was diverted for other purposes and we have realised thousands of dollars we sent went into his pocket.
Mkwananzi is yet to respond to the allegations.
