Zanu PF ‘smuggled’ money to China for regalia

…ruling party attacks
America for blocking access to proper banking channels


The ruling Zanu PF party claims that the United States
of America tried to sabotage their campaign by blocking them from wiring their
transaction to a Chinese firm which printed the party’s regalia until the party
sought ways of circumventing the restrictions and get the money to China without
detection by New York, TellZim News has heard.
Addressing an inter-district meeting last weekend at
Masvingo Polytechnic College recently, Zanu PF politburo member and principal
director of the Hebert Chitepo School of Ideology, Munyaradzi Machacha lashed
out at America for trying to effect regime change hiding behind MDC Alliance
leader, Nelson Chamisa.
It was said that the Chinese firm which printed the
Zanu PF campaign material had refused to release the regalia until they were paid,
a development which caused delays in the arrival of the regalia.
Most, if not all, global financial transactions go
through New York, and are closely monitored by the US treasury department and
CIA which have power to freeze dealings suspected to be involving sanctioned
individuals, organisations, states and terrorist movements.
Flanked by Zanu PF chief whip Pupurai Togarepi and
Senator Josaya Hungwe, Machacha declared that the United States was the real
enemy of the country and should be treated as such in any dealings the country
finds itself in with them.
Machacha narrated how America tried to sabotage and
derail the Zanu PF campaign by making sure that the payment to China failed.
“We are fighting a formidable enemy. America mukono.
Hachisi chana chidoko chaunorova mbama chochema chichimhanya kumakumbo amai
(America is a real giant; it’s not like a child one can easily beat up).
“We had a problem with regalia during our campaigning
period. The regalia was done in China and it was finished in time. The problem
came when we wanted to pay the supplier his money. He said he was not going to release
the regalia until we wired his payment into his account.
“We wired the money and it was hanging for about a
week then it reflected back into our account. We tried wiring the money again
and it spent two weeks suspended before reflecting back into our account.
“President Mnangagwa then thought of other ways of
getting the money to China, avoiding monitoring by the Americans and we
successfully delivered the money and our regalia was released but it was too
late because people had already started voting,” said Machacha.
He said that planes loaded with regalia arrived in the
country late and there were heaps of regalia awaiting distribution at the
party’s headquarters in Harare.
“You should go and tell our people that we have a lot
of regalia in Harare and it is coming. We know our people are not happy but we
will give all our Members of Parliament enough to distribute to their
respective constituencies as we celebrate our victory.
“The issue of regalia left a lot of people dejected
and we had cases where people where fighting to access it. There are plenty of
t-shirts, caps, scarfs and wrapping cloth enough for everyone and ready for
distribution,” said Machacha.
Machacha said the Americans were masters of deception;
they would put a nice face to try and get close and do their mischief.
He said the people of Zimbabwe should be extremely
cautious because America is an enemy that never forgives.
“The enemy which had for long been grabbing us by the
throat seems to be letting go. This will see our economy flowering because the
sanctions they illegally imposed on us will eventually be lifted.
“We will start to experience a better life but let me
warm you Masvingo that this enemy does not forgive. When you date America you
have to go to bed with one eye open because you never know when the enemy may
“You have to sleep with a weapon under the pillow so
that when the enemy strikes, you will have something with which to defend
yourself. Yes, Chamisa might be our enemy here but the one behind him is the greatest
and most powerful foe we ever had,” said Machacha.
He said the ‘imperialists’ who spread the red carpet for
President Mnagagwa and ‘gave him kisses’ were all wolves in sheep’s clothing,
giving reference to Libya’s fallen dictator Muammar Gaddafi.
“Look what they did to Gaddafi. Libya was flourishing
and the same Americans who pretended to be Gaddafi’s friends killed him. We
need our people to remain united so that we will not give any room to the enemy
to exploit.
“That is the strategy Zanu PF is using. If we have no
enemy within, the enemy outside can do us no harm,” said news
