Controversial Norton legislator Temba Mliswa has sensationally claimed that Delish Nguwaya, the Drax International country representative, has “captured” Police Commissioner-General Godwin Matanga.
Mliswa claimed that senior police officials who were instrumental in Nguwaya’s arrest and detention are being targeted for reprisals.
Mliswa further claimed that as a result of the victimisation of police officers who worked on the Draxgate Affair, there is now confusion within the ranks as both junior and senior police officers are unhappy with their superiors. Said Mliswa:
It would appear as if Delish Nguwaya is at it again and has captured the police Commissioner-General [Godwin Matanga].
High ranking officers instrumental to Nguwaya’s detention during the Draxgate affair seem to be the latest target.
A lifestyle audit by the Zimbabwe Anti-corruption Commission (ZACC) on this guy is long overdue! Drax isn’t the only matter.
I’ve always questioned our police system; it’s rather disappointing. We desperately need a CG with capacity who doesn’t arrest to investigate but investigates to incarcerate.
There’s confusion within the ranks and both junior and senior officers appear unhappy with their leadership.
Nguwaya was arrested in June on accusations of fraud. He is the country representative of Drax International, the company accused of misrepresenting to officials to secure contracts worth US$60 million.
Drax Consult SAGL signed contracts worth US$60 million with the Zimbabwe government for the supply of drugs and medical equipment to NatPharm.
The government cancelled the contracts – but not before Drax was paid millions of dollars in bank accounts opened days prior to the payments in Hungary and Mauritius.
