According to The Zimbabwe Independent’s Muckraker, some of the ANC members who were part of the delegation that came to Zimbabwe are involved in the following corruption scandals:
- The ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule: Gangster State: Unravelling Ace Magashule’s Web of Capture, by Pieter-Louis Myburgh. The book details how Cde Ace may have helped himself to about R255 million (US$13,4 million) that he found lying around in the government coffers when he was provincial premier of the Free State. Evidence would have been found against him, were it not for the small inconvenience of tenderpreneur Igo Mpambani, a potential witness, being gunned down in his car in Sandton.
- Lindiwe Zulu: One of Robert Mugabe’s favourite people. Days ago, it was revealed that a company in which her special assistant had shares won a R22 million (US$1,3 million) contract from her department. This is the sort of leadership we look up to in these parts.
- Tony Yengeni: Who better to send to deal with this than folks with vast interest in such matters? Which is why we had Tony Yengeni as part of the delegation. The man was convicted of crimes under the arms deal, which sent Jacob Zuma to court ultimately. Yengeni actually served time, all because he took a Mercedes Benz as an innocent gift.
- Nomvula Mokonyane: Just last week, she fumbled and mumbled after being asked at the state capture hearing who paid R2 million (US$119 196) to buy her a luxury Aston Martin.
The ANC delegation that came to Zimbabwe had a closed-door meeting with Zanu Pf and later on released a statement that said it agreed to meet with other stakeholders on their next visit to Zimbabwe.
