Bulawayo Under 20 Region 5 Youth Games used as a looting ground by Hararians

Bulawayo Under 20 Region 5 Youth Games used as a looting ground by Hararians
Published: 14 January 2015 | by Mbonisi Gumbo
Mthwakazi Republic Party is reliably informed that the just ended Africa Under 20 Region 5 Youth Games that started on the 4th and ended on the 14th of December 2014 were used as a looting platform of public funds. 

The ministry of sports officials are alleged to have illegally benefited from the funds meant to make sure that these games became a success. 

Most of the infrastructure meant to be built in Bulawayo fell short of internationally accepted standards.  Some of the facilities that were built or repaired in Bulawayo have not been completed to date.  

Officials claim that they were inadequately funded but our investigations as a party revealed that corruption played centre stage in this whole fiasco. 

We have been made aware as a party that the Ministry of Sports officials continue to interfere with the work of a Local organising Committee (LOC) which is still operational up to this day for their own personal benefits. 

The government gazetted travel and subsistence allowance claims  for civil servants popularly known as “T and S” in the public service, which is pegged at $55-00 per person per day. 

We have been made aware that top officials in the Ministry of Sports have been awarding themselves allowances meant for Bulawayo civil servants up $150.00 per person per day. 

It has been revealed to the party that most of the top officials engaged in this form of corruption are based in  Harare and not Bulawayo and were not meant to receive these “T and S” claims meant for Bulawayo civil servants. 

We have been made aware that these officials were staying at the Polytech  for free and received free meals as well at the expense of hard-working local Bulawayo civil servants. 

Our members of the party and uMthwakazi community in general who participated in different capacities,  have not received any pay to date while their Harare counterparts were paid their T and S allowances in full before Christmas ranging from $200 to $18 000. 

As if that is not enough, we have been made aware that the local Secretariat worked as late as 01:00 am during the games. We are informed that $2.5 million was released for allowances just before Christmas. We are informed this money was looted to the extent that even the CEO of the Bulawayo Secretariat, was not paid.  Mthwakazi Republic Party has been supplied with a lot of other corruption cases that happened during the games and is in possession of his information.

MRP strongly condemns this corruption and calls for an investigation of the officials involved in this scandal. Zimbabwe has become an empty basket of Africa due to corruption, nepotism, tribalism, regionalism and the Zanu PF's Grand plan that seeks to continue to hold uMthwakazi people bondage. As a party we believe that the solution of these problems facing the people of uMthwakazi is self-determination and self-governance.
