Industry and Commerce Deputy Minister Raj Modi has dismissed as fake and shocking reports which suggested that he was operating a plant that brews an illicit brand called “The Commander In Chief.”
Modi claimed that all his alcoholic beverages are approved by the Standards Association of Zimbabwe (SAZ) adding the reports are inspired by a motive to undo his “good name.” He said:
I was shocked to wake up to news that I manufacture and sell an illicit beer called Commander In Chief.
I have no idea what inspired that story because it is not only false but malicious. This is a figment of someone’s imagination. I don’t make alcohol which is not approved by the Standard Association of Zimbabwe.
I challenge whoever came up with those allegations to prove that I manufacture such a product. Where do I manufacture it? Does it even exist? I doubt because I have not come across it.
Modi said he legally manufactures three alcoholic products namely Modivine Brandy, Everest Can Spirit and Divine Vodka. challenging those who have complaints about their quality to come forward.
