Edmund Kudzayi, a former editor of the Sunday Mail, a state-run paper has suggested that President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s family is deeply sunk in the corruption scandal which involves Drax International.
For him, that is the reality handicapping Mnangagwa from initiating genuine prosecution of his corruption accused ministers of Health and Finance, Obadiah Moyo and Mthuli Ncube respectively. Kudzayi posted on Twitter:
Mnangagwa is protecting (George) Guvamatanga, (Agnes) Mahomva, Obadiah (Moyo) and Mthuli (Ncube) because he knows if he dares arrest them, they will sing and expose the extent of his family’s involvement. The charges against Delish (Nguwaya) are deliberately incompetent because he too will sing.
His remarks come when the president’s son, Collins has been linked to Draz International, a company that siphoned millions of dollars from the government in a shady deal that saw the company selling medical equipment to the Ministry of Health at ridiculously inflated prices.
Although Nguwaya has been arrested while Mahomva and Moyo are currently being investigated, observers say the prosecution is superficial adding that the accused will walk, as the case was with other government officials previously arrested for corruption.
