Scandal

1,7 million Scandal

The permanent secretary was alleged to have ordered the Minerals Marketing Corporation of Zimbabwe (MMCZ) to pay Pedstock, which is a Harare based agricultural firm over $1,3 million presumably for services the firm provided to the Zimbabwe Republic Police's Minerals and Border Patrol Unit.[2]

The police through their national Spokesperson, Charity Charamba denied to have ever done business with Pedstock,
"We have never done any training business with Pedstock. We will need to investigate from our side."

Pedstock also denied providing services to the Minerals and Border Patrol Unit.

Coincidentally, Pedstock supplied and installed irrigation equipment at Gudyanga's farm in Manicaland Province. MMCZ also paid a West Indies based Glamer Limited $575 000, presumably as advance payment for special funding for the Minerals and Border Control Unit. MMCZ in total paid $1 725 million. Gudyanga is yet to comment on the issue.[2]
