Tsvangirai fraud scandal deepens

Zimbabwe Independent "THE fraud scandal in which Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai and his close relative Hebson Makuvise are accused of misappropriating US$1,5 million in public funds meant to buy a house for the premier in the up-market Highlands suburb in Harare has deepened as new information obtained this week further shed light on the high profile case.
Latest details clearly show that there were two different sums of money released from Treasury and the central bank to buy the same state-owned property, located at No 49 Kew Drive in Highlands.

One part of the amounts — US$1,5 million given to Tsvangirai — was allegedly siphoned off by the premier and Makuvise. A team of detectives from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has opened a criminal docket and are probing the case also being handled personally by Police Commissioner-General Augustine Chihuri."
