London, Nov 2, 2017 (AltAfrika)-A fresh allegation has been made against President Robert Mugabe and his family. A private newspaper, Financial Gazette is claiming that members of Zimbabwe’s first family are shareholders in a new airline to be called Zimbabwe Airways
Respected business weekly the Financial Gazettesays in its latest edition that “multiple aviation sources” have told the paper that Mugabe, 93, and his family are “beneficial shareholders” in the new company. The airline’s holding company is reported to be registered in tax haven Mauritius.
The report has been impossible to confirm, and Transport Minister Joram Gumbo told the paper that the First Family – whose wealth and lavish spending are often a source of speculation in a country mired in economic crisis – is not in any way linked to the new airline.
However, the names of beneficial shareholders do not appear in company records
