Rumour: Petroleum mogul and ED friend Tagwirei owns 125 ZUPCO buses and importing more. Team Pachedu has claimed mogul Kuda Tagwirei owns 125 ZUPCO buses. This was revealed on Twitter in a tweet that insinuated that the state was captured by Tagwireyi. Team Pachedu Tweeted:
At least 125 of the new ZUPCO buses belong to Tagwirei who acquired them through Landela Investments, a subsidiary of Sotic International & is still importing more. Banning Kombis will result in the loss of thousands of jobs and benefit mainly the cartel kingpin. #StateCapture.
In March, Freeman Chari claimed the government failed to pay for 18 ZUPCO buses from Belarus and Tagwirei bought the buses to lease them to ZUPCO: So it turns out the government failed to pay for 18 buses from Belarus. Tagwirei then bought the rest of the buses you saw and he is going to lease to ZUPCO.
I have confirmed this with sources at ZIMRA that some of the buses were held up because he had not paid for duty.
