President Emmerson Mnangagwa has reportedly fired his alleged nephew and Special Anti-Corruption Unit (SACU) head Tabani Vusa Mpofu over his alleged corruption with fuel mogul Billy Rautenbach.

Tabani Mpofu, who is allegedly Mnangagwa’s nephew, has been the head of the SACU, a unit in the president’s office to fight corruption together with other units like the Zimbabwe Anti Corruption Commission (ZACC).

Sources confirmed to Nehanda Radio that Mpofu has been fired from SACU following allegations he was conniving with Rautenbach to sell fuel outside Zimbabwe through his company Green Fuel.

It is reported that the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) this week impounded two trucks loading unleaded fuel with allegations that Mpofu and Rautenbach are the runners.

The duo reportedly claimed the trucks were carrying Covid-19 sanitisers.

Nehanda Radio understands that last year, there was a plot to arrest Mpofu, amid reports of discord in how anti-graft crack teams have been operating.
Allegations also claimed Mpofu was ‘too incompetent and corrupt’.

Mpofu did not answer phone calls when Nehanda Radio contacted him for a comment on reports that he had been fired from SACU.

SACU was established in 2018 by Mnangagwa with aim of improving efficiency in the fight against graft and strengthen the effectiveness of national mechanisms for the prevention of corruption.

    What does alleged nephew mean?
    Surely the man is either a nephew or not a nephew.
    But I can’t believe that ED would sack even an alleged nephew for being a thief as ED being the Head Thief in Zimbabwe would be very proud to have a nephew, even only an alleged one, as a thief.
    But when you study Tabani’s fat overfed face you can see that he has been eating big helpings on the ZANU PF gravy train for a very long time.
