Hurungwe West Mp Keith Guzah has accused Zanu-PF national political commissar Engelbert Rugeje of asking for a bribe. Guzah yesterday wrote to the party’s national chairperson, Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri asking her to order an investigation against the former army boss.
In a letter, dated May 5, 2018 seen by Daily News, Guzah claims Rugeje demanded $10 000 to pay for his air ticket to Malaysia and to pay off a debt. Guzah said he did not give Rugeje the money he wanted because he assumed it was a general bar talk. Part of Guzah’s letter reads:
On January 23, 2018, I met …Rugeje at the New Club at around 7pm and in the course of our discussion he asked me for a favour in the form of $10 000 to assist him in covering his immediate debt and also pay for an air ticket to Malaysia …To prove his point, he sent me a copy of the invitation by email while he further emphasised the importance of being in the good books of the NPC as he was the one in charge of elections.
