Exiled former G40 Kingpin Professor Jonathan Moyo has alleged that President Emmerson Mnangagwa instructed disgraced former Minister of ICT Supa Mandiwanzira to transfer $1million to Zimbabwe Football Association from the Universal Access Fund.
The matter came to light after Newsday on Wednesday reported that Cabinet ministers Makhosini Hlongwane (Sport) and Supa Mandiwanzira (ICT) are both set to be summoned to appear before Parliament, where they will be quizzed over loans that were advanced to the country’s football governing body Zifa in 2016 and 2017, but were never repaid.
It is alleged that ZIFA CEO Jonathan Mashingaidze confirmed that they had received $225 000 out of the $1 million that was released by POTRAZ.
“A test case of the zero tolerance to corruption mantra as former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa instructed Supa Mandiwanzira to get POTRAZ to pay $1m to ZIFA from the Universal Access Fund. I have V11s!” Prof Moyo excitedly said
This is one of the cases that exposes Mnangagwa s selective prosecution and could open a can of worms about Zimbabwe Anti Corruption Commission s double and corrupt standards. It is a minefield.”
Moyo claims that when he raised a red flag over the issue, Mnangagwa unleashed prosecuting Authorities to hound him.
“When I was in government I did my part and even this issue of 1$m Universal Access Fund from POTRAZ to ZIFA, I raised it in politburo as I did with command agriculture. The result WAS Mnangagwa responded by unleashing ZACC and the National Prosecuting Authority on me. The rest is history!”
