Former ZANU PF Politburo member, Professor Jonathan Moyo has challenged new Zimbabwe Anti-corruption Commission (ZACC) chairperson Justice Loice Matanda-Moyo to investigate what he considers to be the biggest theft of public funds to the tune of $9 through the printing of Treasury Bills (TBs).
Writing on microblogging site Twitter, Prof Moyo said:
The biggest heist Zimbabwe has suffered under Mnangagwa is the printing of over USD9 billion in TBs at 1:1; now part of Zim’s domestic debt. This CORRUPTION has decimated the economy, triggered runaway hyper-inflation & destroyed livelihoods to genocidal proportions!
The #TBgate heist was accomplished by CORRUPTLY masterminding an obscure enterprise called Command Agriculture under which not less than USD 5 billion was spent in 2017/2018 to create zero grain reserves; as Zim now need to import 800,000 tonnes of grain for USD 255 million!
The #TBgate CORRUPTION is now being covered up by Mnangagwa who has gotten ZanuPF youth to muddy the waters; with the support of @MthuliNcube & @MinisterSBMoyo, the minister responsible for international trade, whose wife at #Zacc has replaced Goodson Nguni as the hatchet hand!
In his TPS @MthuliNcube confirms there was “reckless and unrestrained” printing” of TBs but doesn’t say by who & for what. It’s #TBgate: theft of public funds on an industrial scale. If Matanda-Moyo hasn’t been sent to Zacc to cover up #TBgate, #Zacc must start with #TBgate!
The fact that Matanda-Moyo has started her hatchet-job at Zacc by getting excited about unproven corruption allegations made by ZanuPF youth, exposes her as a Mnangagwa factionalism & an accessory to #TBgate; bent on protecting her husband, @MinisterSBMoyo, & the #PAC lot!
If Matanda-Moyo wants to be taken seriously & respected as a judge, she MUST get Zacc to investigate #TBgate. What happened to the money? USD 9 billion in TBs were siphoned mostly through Command Agriculture; which was said to be a Sakunda funded private-sector initiative!
Zim’s version of great train robbers of the economy behind the USD 9 billion heists drive around in pink Bentleys & Rolls Royces & have foreign accounts stashed with cash. Some own private jets kept in Dubai & Switzerland which they lease to the State. This @MthuliNcube knows!
As it’s now clear that only an international tribunal can credibly investigate Aug 2018/Jan 2019 atrocities & disappearances of persons since #gukurahundi, the USD 9 billion heist & USD 15 billion diamond loot will require the services of Transparency International. Not Zacc!
