Tsenengamu, Musarara face off over maize meal donation

  • Tsenengamu received 500kgs of mealie meal
  • Musarara says he has been always helping the youths when they wanted donations
  • Tsenengamu says donation was for Mt Darwin Hospital
  • Musarara demands proof of corruption

GRAIN Millers Association of Zimbabwe (GMAZ) chairman, Tafadzwa Musarara, has slapped the recently suspended Zanu PF youth league leaders, Godfrey Tsenengamu and Lewis Matutu, with a ZWL$10 million lawsuit.

The lawsuit is in response to Tsenengamu and Matutu’s assertions at a Press conference last week that Musarara was a member of an unnamed cartel which is reportedly wreaking economic havoc in the country.

The lawsuit comes at a time when sources allege Musarara is accusing the suspended youth leaders of asking for mealie meal from him.

Documents seen by this publication show that in December 2019 Tsnengamu asked for a donation of mealie meal and was given 500kgs.

“These guys have been helping each other but when things are at an all-time low they attack each other,” said a source close to the developments.

However, in an interview with this publication, Tsenengamu denied the accusation, saying he only provided transport to ferry the mealie meal to the Mt Darwin Hospital, saying that explained why his name was on the receipts in Zim Morning Post’s possession.

I assisted in the transportation of the mealie meal to the Mt Darwin Hospital and had to sign the receipts, which explains why my name is mentioned there,” he said

Tsenengamu also highlighted that it was Musarara’s idea to donate mealie meal to the hospital.

“I mentioned that I had organised an end-of-year party and ceremony for the Mt Darwin Hospital staff to appreciate their service and that’s when Musarara offered to support what l was doing through a donation to the hospital; and that’s it.

“I communicated that to the hospital authorities and offered to ferry it to them.”

Meanwhile, Musarara is asking for Tsenengamu to provide proof showing that he is part of the cartels corrupt.
