Zimbabwe: How Mugabe Steals

Denford Magora reveals how Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe amassed wealth during his tenure. I promised a few days ago to share with you information from impeccable sources on just how Robert Mugabe amassed a fortune during his tenure, “Few people know that, when Mugabe travels overseas, the Chief Secretary to the Cabinet goes to the Reserve Bank and asks for cash, hard cash, for the trip. It is given in US dollars. In the 1980s, the figure was US$50 000 per trip.”

    its amazing how a prime minister can travel around with a convoy of three cars and yet the president chooses to take with him an army of body guards and a convoy similar to one following a hearse to the graveyard.rinemanyanga hariputirwe.
