  1. Another Zanu pf corrupt looter freed. Zimbabwe 🇿🇼 is open for corruption boys dzangu. No rule of law.

  2. Corruption the highly perfected art of destruction effected on Zimbabwe by ZanuPF….. monies disappear but CRIMINALS are set FREE..

  3. I was expecting this, after he started praising the Gukurahundi party, and telling CCC Chamisa to forget it!

  4. Also watch out for Jonathan Moyo’s imminent return, and charges withdrawn. Now that he has refocused his rough tongue on Chamisa, away from Mungwangwa, since Mungwangwa’s state visit to Kenya during President Uhurus tenure.
