Perm Sec in U.S.$1,7 Million Scandal

Secretary for Mines and Mining Development Professor Francis Gudyanga allegedly ordered the Minerals Marketing Corporation of Zimbabwe (MMCZ) to pay a Harare-based agricultural firm over $1,3 million presumably for services the firm provided to the Zimbabwe Republic Police’s Minerals and Border Patrol Unit.

Coincidentally, Pedstock Investment, the agricultural company, supplied and installed irrigation equipment at Prof Gudyanga’s farm in Manicaland worth thousands of dollars. The equipment included top-of-the-range water pumps and other irrigation accessories.
