“Air Zimbabwe And Govt Disagree On Quantity Of COVID-19 Equipment Sakunda Holdings Imported,” – Chin’ono

The government of Zimbabwe has issued a statement that contradicts that of Air Zimbabwe on the quantity of COVID-19 equipment that the carrier delivered in the country on Monday.

Air Zimbabwe reported that its flight UM456 cargo charter flight landed safely at Harare Robert Gabriel International Airport with +30 tonnes of COVID-19 related equipment.

Many thanks and appreciation to our entire crew who operated this charter flight. More pics to follow.... DPE036:UM UM sizimkton 13:55 20 Apr 20 Twitter for Android'

 

Hopewell Chin’ono, a Zimbabwean Journalist, claims that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs also posted on social media saying that Sakunda Holdings and Chinese businesspeople operating in Zimbabwe have imported 23 tonnes of medical equipment – PPEs and ventilators plus Chinese and Western medicine to fight COVID-19.

The consignment arrived on an Air Zim Charter flight at R.G.M Int Airport today. @InfoMinZW'

We, however, could not locate the said post.

Earlier, ZANU PF Patriots had posted on Twitter suggesting that an Air Zimbabwe @FlyAirZimbabwe chartered by Sakunda Holdings to ferry cargo had landed carrying 30 tons, with part of donations to National COVID Response team.

The twitter handle further said that the cargo is worth USD 3 million and includes PPEs, auto spraying machines, ultrasound scanners, ventilators and rapid test kits.

The cause for the variation is not yet known but it certainly does not sound good as this is happening amid reports that political elites are diverting some of the donations to the country to private use.

  1. Looting in pursuit of our Uhuru based ideology of corruption is best undertaken on the onset of a project.
