The Zanu-PF Youth League today made a number of allegations against senior business people and party officials over corruption.
Businessman Kuda Tagwirei has been implicated in the often violent Mazowe illegal mining activities that have seen youth gangs notoriously known as MaShurugwi, engage in machete wars over gold leaving many people dead or injured.
Addressing the media in the capital, ZANU PF Youth League national political commissar Godfrey Tsenengamu said Tagwirei is the one controlling all sectors with the financial backup of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe.
“The so-called Mashurugwi submit all their gold to Kuda Tagwirei. His company owns a lot of companies including Jumbo Mine, Trojan Mine in Bindura, Fredda Rebecca, the list is endless.
“We don’t hate Tagwirei but he is in control of every sector and he is being funded by the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe.
“Our question is that why do they continue to give tenders to one person?,” asked Tsenengamu.”
The press conference was hosted by the Zanu PF Youth Affairs led by its deputy secretary Lewis Matutu who said the naming of Tagwirei and other officials was non political. Matutu said they were prepared to lose their jobs in the fight against corruption.
