Minister of Defence and War Veterans Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri has alleged that senior Zanu-PF officials in Manicaland misappropriated money which had been donated to the party to celebrate Muchinguri-Kashiri’s appointment to the party’s praesidium. Addressing the celebrations on Saturday, Muchinguri-Kashiri said
We wanted to celebrate with our President (Emmerson Mnangagwa), but I was told that some money was stolen that was meant for my celebrations. But I am happy that people here in Mutasa Central you have shown your support by financing this event despite the fact that some funds that were meant for the celebrations went missing
Zanu-PF Manicaland political commissar Gift Kagweda confirmed that $32 000 had been misappropriated.
