The Saviour Kasukuwere Wikileaks cables


Saviour Kasukuwere was one of the young barons that entered into Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front politics when he was elected to parliament in 2000. He was profiting from ZANU-PF’s indigenisation programme and took advantage of the shortage of fuel that hit the country shortly after the country’s foreign currency dried up. According to Wikileaks he was an admirer of Youth Development Minister Border Gezi who also came from Mashonaland Central and now fills his shoes as Youth Minister. Kasukuwere has been making headlines because of the government’s indigenisation policy. There are 27 cables on him. Here they are.
