THE Grain Marketing Association of Zimbabwe (Gmaz) spokesperson Tafadzwa Musarara on Tuesday hit back at Godfrey Tsenangamu and Lewis Matutu after the two alleged he was enriching himself through unethical business practices.
The duo, who are senior Zanu PF Youth League members made the allegations while addressing a news conference where they were “naming-and-shaming” corruption in high places.
During the press conference, the two made stinging allegations, saying Musarara was working with a clique of white people to divert maize meal into the black market, compounding the shortages of mealie-meal in shops countrywide.
“I was allegedly blamed for the shortages of maize meal in shops and that I was working with a clique of white people to divert maize meal to a black market,” Musarara said.
Musarara said accusations by Tsenengamu and Matutu were false, malicious and defamatory.
“I have instructed my legal practitioners to institute legal proceedings against the two gentlemen in order to vindicate my rights,” he said.
Musarara said contrary to suggestions that he was responsible for the maize shortages, he was working to ensure that the current shortages were addressed.
