Masiyiwa red flag over theft plot on anti-cholera donation

The government has condemned the reported actions of some suppliers and council officials who inflated prices of various goods and services following Econet’s announcement of a $10m fund towards the fight against cholera.

Econet owner, Strive Masiiwa took to his Facebook page to express displeasure over the ‘sad’ actions and promised to name and shame those trying to profiteer from the cholera misfortune.

The Minister of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing, July Moyo confirmed receiving reports of council employees who are inflating prices and said corrective measures will be taken.

“Reports came to my office that the municipal officials are inflating figures but [Health and Child Care Minister] Dr Obediah Moyo can respond to that one. Before he responds, what I can I assure the nation is that corrective measures will be taken to that effect,” he said.

Moyo explained that the donation from Strive Masiyiwa is being handled by an Econet subsidiary, Higher Life Foundation which is procuring medical requirements and supplying the government.

According to Masiyiwa, the price of items such as gloves which normally cost about $3, were now being charged at $65.

Meanwhile, Harare Acting Town Clerk, Engineer Hosiah Chisango this morning suspended some officials suspected of inflating prices for goods and services to be used in the fight against cholera.

A statement on the Harare City Council’s Twitter account says Engineer Chisango has since informed Harare Mayor, Councillor Herbert Gomba and relevant stakeholders about the suspension.

    that’s equally educative and engaging, and
    without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy I came across this during my hunt for something regarding this.
