Al Jazeera expose PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa #AlJazeeraDocumentary
PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa has reportedly thrown under the bus his ambassador-at-large, Uebert Madzanire, alias Uebert Angel, as it emerged yesterday that he is under investigation for alleged money-laundering.
Angel, the leader of Spirit Embassy Church, was recently fingered in a yet to be released graft exposé as part of a gang that has been allegedly milking the country’s resources using their links in government and political circles.
The British-Zimbabwean televangelist was implicated in grand theft and looting by Qatar-based international news channel, Al Jazeera, in a documentary expected to be released today.
He was named alongside local gold dealer Ewan MacMillan, who is also reportedly under investigation by the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU).
The Al Jazeera documentary, titled Unveiling Zimbabwe’s Dark Secrets: Al Jazeera Exposes Looting, Plunder and Money Laundering, has shaken authorities as it exposes the role played by senior government officials and their cronies in the country’s endemic corruption. The first of the four-part documentary is expected to be aired tonight on Al Jazeera.
In a letter addressed to principal officers and compliance officers of insurance companies, brokers and reinsurers dated March 21, 2023, Insurance and Pensions Commission (Ipec) chairperson Grace Muradzikwa exposed the secret government probe into Angel and MacMillan’s financil affairs.
“The Ipec is required in terms of the Money Laundering and Proceeds of Crime (MLPC) Act (Chapter 9:24) to co-ordinate with the (Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe’s) Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) in the assessment of money-laundering and terrorist financing risks to which the country is exposed,” Muradzikwa said.
