President Emmerson Mnangagwa in $1million Potraz fraud

Exiled former G40 Kingpin Professor Jonathan Moyo has alleged that President Emmerson Mnangagwa instructed disgraced former Minister of ICT Supa Mandiwanzira to transfer $1million to Zimbabwe Football Association from the Universal Access Fund.

The matter came to light after Newsday on Wednesday reported that  Cabinet ministers Makhosini Hlongwane (Sport) and Supa Mandiwanzira (ICT) are both set to be summoned to appear before Parliament, where they will be quizzed over loans that were advanced to the country’s football governing body Zifa in 2016 and 2017, but were never repaid.

It is alleged that ZIFA CEO Jonathan Mashingaidze confirmed that they had received $225 000 out of  the $1 million that was released by POTRAZ.

“A test case of the zero tolerance to corruption mantra as former  Vice President Emmerson  Mnangagwa instructed Supa Mandiwanzira to get POTRAZ to pay $1m to ZIFA from the Universal Access Fund. I have V11s!” Prof Moyo excitedly said


This is one of the cases that exposes Mnangagwa s selective prosecution and could open a can of worms about Zimbabwe Anti Corruption Commission s double and corrupt standards. It is a minefield.”

Moyo claims that when he raised a red flag over the issue, Mnangagwa unleashed prosecuting Authorities to hound him.

“When I was in government I did my part  and even this issue of 1$m Universal Access Fund from  POTRAZ to ZIFA, I raised it in politburo  as I did with command agriculture. The result WAS Mnangagwa responded  by unleashing ZACC and the  National Prosecuting Authority on me. The rest is history!”
