morgan tsvangirai  scandal.jpgNew revelations continue to emerge concerning Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s alleged double dipping scandal, with the latest information exposing the illicit dealings behind the purchase of his million-dollar Highlands mansion.

 

The latest details picked from reliable sources indicate that the house at the centre of controversy was allegedly paid for twice as the last owner, Mr. Justin Davenport, now based in South Africa, sold the house to an  acquaintance of the Prime Minister in 2007 to the tune of US$800 000.

Further indications are that the house was allegedly already paid for by the Prime Minister’s western allies long before government was made to fork out a whopping US$1.5 million.

The alleged payment by the Prime Minister’s allies was for protection of their interests in the hope that Mr Tsvangirai would ascend to the highest decision making post in the country.

ZBC News has it on good authority that further to the alleged swindling of government funds, the Prime Minister abused his political office by allegedly obtaining a further US$1 million from the treasury for the purpose of renovating the house.

Observers have condemned the Prime Minister’s actions saying they do not reflect the fundamental qualities of a leader who has the interests of the people at heart.

Meanwhile, a complete dossier of the dirty dealings which has sucked in RBZ officials, Finance Minister Mr. Tendai Biti, and the Prime Minister is said to be nearing completion and awaits legal action.

With renovations at the house almost complete, legal experts are of the opinion the net should now close in on any person alleged to have breached the law without fear or favour.
