Former ministers who are now full time Zanu PF employees will soon be driving luxury cars after the ruling party splashed $5 million on the motors.

Obert Mpofu, Patrick Chinamasa and Sydney Sekeremayi, among many others, will soon take delivery of Toyota VX 200 Land Cruisers from South Africa. The Standard reports that Zanu PF is said to have received the money to buy the top-of-the-range vehicles from a local tycoon with vast interests in the energy sector.

Zanu PF director of administration Dickson Dzora confirmed that the ruling party was buying top-of-the-range vehicles, but dismissed claims that the deal was financed by the businessman with links to Mnangagwa and Vice-President Constantino Chiwenga.

“Zanu PF is not receiving any vehicles from anyone, that is total rubbish,” he said. “As a party, we bought vehicles for our members during elections and we will continue buying vehicles for them.

“So for anyone to suggest that Zanu PF is receiving vehicles from anyone and not buying on its own is total rubbish.”

At least 50 cars are set to be delivered anytime from now.
