Sydney Masamvu Wikileaks dossier- Part One


Former Zimbabwean journalist Sydney Masamvu has attracted a lot of attention following revelations that he was working closely with the United States embassy in Pretoria and was providing the embassy with impressive insights and analysis.

A search of the Wikileaks cables shows that there are 39 cables that cite his name, the same number as those that cite Vice-President Joice Mujuru.

He beats other prominent media personalities like Alpha Media boss Trevor Ncube and multiple award winning journalist Geoff Nyarota.

The Insider has decided to publish all 39 cables in full so that our readers can judge for themselves.

The cables will be published in batches of 10 over the next four days.
