Tsvangirayi Denies Stealing RBZ Money


MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai yesterday denied accusations by Zanu-PF legislators linking him to the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe’s controversial $1.35 million debt.

Tsvangirai’s spokesperson Luke Tamborinyoka described as preposterous and defamatory claims by Marondera East MP Jeremiah Chiwetu that the MDC leader received $3 million from RBZ to buy his Highlands mansion.

He said this was a desperate attempt to equalize the doyen of the democratic struggle in Zimbabwe with those who benefited from the quasi-fiscal activities of the RBZ that included the provision of tractors, scotch carts and farming inputs.

Meanwhile, Tsvangirai’s continued to stay in the government house allocated to him during his tenure as Prime Minister has caused serious divisions within the main opposition party with some party members saying he should vacate the mansion as it was compromising his integrity.
