The opposition CCC has challenged President Emmerson Mnangagwa to address the nation on allegations of money laundering and gold smuggling exposed by the Al Jazeera documentary “Gold Mafia”.
Speaking at a Press conference in Harare on Friday, CCC deputy spokesperson Gift Siziba said that all those implicated in the alleged money laundering and gold smuggling should be prosecuted. Said Siziba:
We are very much worried that up to date nothing has been done to bring to justice those that are implicated in this huge scandal and not only the gold scandal but also the siphoning of our resources illegally in different aspects be it lithium, diamonds and so forth.
We definitely demand that at this juncture, it is important for the President (Mnangagwa) to address the nation and all the people who are implicated in these corrupt deals to be brought to book.
The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) said it froze the bank accounts of four suspects linked to the scam.
