Mnangagwa’s henchman, Mr Masimba Chandavengerwa, Acting General Manager of the Minerals Marketing Corporation of Zimbabwe Limited (MMCZ), and former employee of Shabanie Mashaba Mines Private Limited (SMM) as been exposed as one of the key actors in the SMM drama. On top of President Mnangagwa’s list of alleged externalizers is a company called African Associated Mines Private Limited (AAM).

SMM V GWARADZIMBA

Gwaradzimba was appointed by Chinamasa, one of the key henchmen of Mnangagwa on 6 September 2004.Chinamasa crafted a decree that allowed Gwaradzimba to have a relationship with SMM, a company that had hitherto no relationship with the government of an ownership nature.It may be difficult to correctly appreciate the significance of this move by Chinamasa who had already specified Mawere after having failed to extradite him from South Africa in May/June 2004.The law that governs the existence and operation of companies is the Companies Act. It provides for the appointment…

Account for Itai Dzamara – Zimbabwe Vigil Diary

Zimbabwe Vigil Diary

The Vigil marked the third anniversary of the abduction and presumed murder of the human rights campaigner Itai Dzamara.

Just that he stated it as a primary truth which had application in all areas of party policy and activity. The fight for liberation throughout the world has been a struggle for freedom – freedom to choose who will govern us; freedom to choose who we mix with and are associated;…

Mnangagwa desperate to please Britain

indecent assault

FINANCE minister Patrick Chinamasa says government’s top priority is to normalise relations with its erstwhile coloniser, the United Kingdom, as Zimbabwe moves to end its costly two-decade isolation by powerful western nations. Relations between the two countries went sour in 2000 when former President Robert Mugabe’s government seized white-owned farms for redistribution to landless blacks in a drive often marked by violence. This was followed by bloody elections disputed by the opposition, resulting in the European Union imposing targeted sanctions on the then President Robert Mugabe, his inner circles as…
