The ruling Zanu-PF party is reported to be buying luxury vehicles for former cabinet ministers who have been redeployed to head departments at the party’s headquarters. The Toyota VX 200 Land Cruisers which are being imported from South Africa will cost $5 million. The party is reported to have received the money for the purchase of the vehicles from a wealthy businessman with interests in the energy sector. However, the party dismissed the claims with Zanu PF director of administration Dickson Dzora saying,
Zanu PF is not receiving any vehicles from anyone, that is total rubbish. As a party, we bought vehicles for our members during elections and we will continue buying vehicles for them. So for anyone to suggest that Zanu PF is receiving vehicles from anyone and not buying on its own is total rubbish.
The former ministers who head the Zanu-PF departments and are termed secretaries have full ministerial status and perks as they are said to be equal or more senior to those in government. Zanu-PF secretary for Administration Obert Mpofu and spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo have both stressed that the party is superior to the government.
