Addressing a Zanu PF Central Committee meeting in Harare on Wednesday morning, President Mnangagwa said some senior party members are asking for money from potential investors to organise one-on-one meetings between himself and would be investors.
Mnangagwa said the mantra “Zimbabwe is Open for Business” has opened up the country. He said that investors are being asked to pay huge amounts of money to have access to ministers or the president. Said Mnangagwa:
They say before I take you, pay up. One person told me that he was charged 5 million rand to come see me. He was told that three quarters of the money would go to the president (and the other quarter to the fixer). So corruption, corruption, corruption, down with corruption. Being asked to pay to see the Vice president (Constantino) Chiwenga to see (Defence minister Oppah) Muchinguri, down with corruption. Under our new dispensation we do not tolerate corruption.
