“It’s about survival for her family and kids.

Zanu PF regime is a mafia organisation

Recent press reports to the effect that Zanu PF has splashed no less than US$60 million in importing brand new motor vehicles and buses for their 2018 election campaign are most startling and indeed, extremely worrisome and disturbing.

The MDC, being a social democratic political party that believes in constructing and moulding a responsible and law – abiding welfare state, would like to register its utter contempt and complete disgust at the profligacy and financial impropriety that has become the hallmark of the collapsing and faction – infested Zanu PF regime.

Fundamentally, the source of the money that Zanu PF used to purchase more than 365 motor vehicles and buses remains shrouded in secrecy. The MDC calls upon Zanu PF, to provide proof of import duty paid for these vehicles. Our investigations as a party have discovered some very scary facts about this recent acquisition of motor vehicles by the Zanu PF regime. We are thoroughly convinced that the source of the money used to import the vehicles borders on high level and institutionalised criminality.

We therefore challenge the revenue authority, ZIMRA, to provide concrete and credible proof that import duty for the vehicles in question was paid.

Our investigations have revealed that, the ruling elite within the rabidly corrupt Zanu PF regime is in the habit of smuggling various items and commodities for their personal use and to their various struggling business enterprises. Put bluntly, smuggling being practised by Zanu PF as a political party and members of the ruling elite is costing the country millions if not billions of United States dollars in lost revenue every year.
