The daily publication NewsDay has alleged that Sakunda Holdings owner Kuda Tagwirei is under investigation by the police and the Central Intelligence Organisation. Tagwirei who has close ties to President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s administration is reported to have been called in for questioning over his alleged role in the foreign currency black market. NewsDay reports that the police and CIO also wanted to raid Tagwirei’s home on Sunday but were unable to do so after the businessman left Harare and accompanied Vice President Constantino Chiwenga to Wedza aboard a military helicopter. A source who spoke to the publication said,
He was invited for questioning on Monday morning. He initially resisted, but later complied.
There has been massive speculation that Tagwirei is the infamous “Queen Bee” who was alleged to run a cartel controlling the fuel industry and is heavily involved in the foreign currency black market. The allegations were made by the shortlived chairperson of the Ministry of Finance’s Communications Taskforce, Acie Lumumba, real name William Mutumanje.
