Chikore Accused Of Corruption & Nepotism When He Was Air Zimbabwe COO

Former President Robert Mugabe’s son-in-law Simba Chikore has been fingered in corruption and nepotism when he was the chief operating officer of Air Zimbabwe.

Chikore, who married Mugabe’s only daughter, Bona, attempted to incorporate Zimbabwe Airways as an alternative, debt-free entity funded by Treasury.

The deal involved the purchase of four Boeing 777-200ER aircraft from the Malaysian government and six Embraer-145 aircraft from the United States of America.

Chikore also allegedly misrepresented himself as a captain while he was a first officer, which disqualified him from flying.

He resigned from his post in 2017 after his father-in-law’s lengthy rule came to an end when the military-backed by citizens and parliamentarians forced him to resign.
