Cabinet Files: Zim Minister Probed for 'Elephant Poisoning, Ivory Theft'

Yet another Zimbabwean cabinet minister has been sucked into another shameful, underhand deals - and is reportedly under probe for facilitating the 'poisoning of elephants and subsequent sale of 85 tonnes of ivory to China'. 

Local Government minister Saviour Kasukuwere, who is also under scrutiny for parceling out stands is under probe.

Government sources said that Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa had been leading the investigation through the Office of the President and Cabinet, according to NewsDay.

Police are said to be involved in the investigations.

Mnangagwa is allegedly to have handed over a damning dossier to President Robert Mugabe relating to the cyanide poisoning of elephants in 2015 and the subsequent shipping of tusks to China before the veteran politician left for Malaysia last week.

Kasukuwere has claimed that further exposés about under fire Professor Jonathan Moyo are ill-conceived and damaging the ruling party - and more details are still streaming in.

Prof Moyo and his deputy Godfrey Gandawa are accused of swindling the Zimbabwe Manpower Development Fund (Zimdef) of close to half a million dollars to fund party and personal programmes.

Kasukuwere who is himself embroiled in a residential stands scandal said further exposure of Minister Moyo could damage Zanu-PF, which he said was already dealing with the matter internally. - Newsday.
