The Flora Bhuka Wikileaks cables


Flora Bhuka was a rising political star from the time she was elected Member of Parliament for Gokwe East. She was quickly promoted to Minister of State in Vice-President Simon Muzenda’s Office then Minister of State for Land Reform. But her star started fading when she came up with a damning land audit report that named top supporters of President Robert Mugabe who owned multiple farms. She was never kicked out of government up to today. But it appears that this is more to keep her in check. There are 12 cables on her. Here they are.
