The ruling party, ZANU PF has dismissed allegations of corruption leveled against President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s family.

In the past weeks the media has been awash with reports of corruption involving President Mnangagwa’s son and his bodyguard .

Speaking at a press conference today , Zanu Pf acting national spokesperson Patrick Chinamasa said that the attacks and allegations against the first family are choreographed and sponsored.

“ZANU PF, has noted with concern, the systemic, well-choreographed and sponsored
attacks on the integrity of the First Family by unscrupulous characters such as Hopewell Chin’ono this time targeting the President’s son.

“We are aware that these baseless attacks did not start today but need to stop forthwith.
From false allegations that the First Lady’s convoy hit a child in Kwekwe, to that one of his sons has interests in Drax International all of which have not been backed by any evidence except publication of pictures involving a Delish Nguwaya, we warn the public and those writing these lies to stop.”

Chinamasa said the claims are all concerted attempts to character assassinate the first family.

“We therefore wish to advise false news peddlers and our detractors to desist forthwith from perpetrating desperate character assassinations and shenanigans,” he said.

The Mnangagwa’s have been in the media following allegations of corruption against Mnangagwa’s son, Collins and bodyguard.

Last week, Collins Mnangagwa strenuously denied involvement with Drax International and Delish Nguwaya saying there was no professional or personal relationship. This has stirred controversy after the company was given a US$60 million tender by the Ministry of Health and Child Care in violation of proper procurement regulations.

Drax International has been accused of inflating the prices of N95 masks used to control the spread of COVID-19 from US$4 to US$28 and prices of protective personal equipment from US$20 each to US$90.
