The Eddie Cross Wikileaks cables


Eddie Cross was one of the founding members of the Movement for Democratic Change and had been its policy advisor up to now. There have, however, been questions about his business capability after he failed to revive the Dairy Marketing Board and the Cold Storage Commission. His own business has not been much of a success either. Cross was one of the cabinet ministers appointed to join the inclusive government but was removed to make room for Joel Gabuzza. There are 11 cables on him. Here they are.
