Businessman Kuda Tagwirei is set to come under fire at the annual Zanu-PF conference in Esigodhini as some youths from the party are reported to be planning to demonstrate against him.
“Queen B” Targeted As Youths Plot To Demonstrate At Zanu-PF Conference
Security is reported to be on high alert to thwart the protests against the businessman who is a close ally of President Emmerson Mnangagwa and Vice President Constantino Chiwenga.
The businessman came into the spotlight a few months back after Zanu-PF activist Acie Lumumba, real name William Gerald Mutumanje, gave him the moniker “Queen Bee” and claimed that he ran a cartel which was responsible for the country’s economic woes.
Former presidential adviser Christopher Mutsvangwa also claimed that Tagwirei was blocking efforts for the government to build a second fuel pipeline so that he could protect his own fuel monopoly.
Mutsvangwa claimed that Tagwirei was the only person who was benefitting from the RBZ foreign currency allocations at the expense of tobacco farmers and gold miners.
The planned protest is reported to be the work of youths aligned to Mutsvangwa and possibly Gokwe-Nembudziya MP Mayor Justice Wadyajena who fell out with Tagwirei and has been a vocal critic of him on social media.
