The Affirmative Action Group (AAG) and the Consumer Council of Zimbabwe have taken aim at Bulk Cash and Carry management following allegations of dodgy business operations and money laundering among others.
Addressing a media briefing in Bulawayo this Wednesday, outgoing manager of Bulk Cash and Carry Mr Olga Chafausipo gave a blow by blow account of how they used to externalise millions of United States dollars to Pakistan via Botswana at a time the country is facing serious cash shortages.
He also alleged that the company owned by Pakistan nationals would evade paying taxes while repackaging expired products for the Zimbabwean market in the name of investing in the country.
Bulawayo province AAG chief executive officer Mr Pillan Muchiya says they once visited the company and witnessed firsthand some rotten material at the premises.
He said its time their organisation and government intervenes in a bid to promote proper business investments.
Consumer council of Zimbabwe Matabeleland regional manager Mr Comfort Muchekeza says his organisation will not fold arms while consumers’ health is being compromised by such business practices.
However, the company’s chamber secretary Mr Nqobani Sithole dismissed Mr Chafausipo’s allegations as coming from an aggrieved person who has since been dismissed by the company.
He challenged Mr Chafausipo to report any allegations to law enforcement agents for prosecution to take place if there is anything amiss.
