Mzembi allegedly ordered Kaseke to drop sponsor of carnival because sponsor dumped his wife's project
Minister of Tourism and Hospitality Industry, Walter Mzembi is reportedly engaged in a war of words with Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) chief executive Karikoga Kaseke over the sponsorship of the Harare International Carnival because the sponsor allegedly dumped Mzembi’s wife’s project. Mzembi ordered Kaseke to drop the name of sponsor Bigtime Strategic Group saying the carnival is a government project and should not carry the name of a sponsor. An article in the daily publication, Daily News, questions Mzembi’s motivation saying that the dispute over the sponsorship only started after Bigtime Strategic Group dumped the Miss Tourism Zimbabwe pageant which is run by Mzembi’s wife, Barbara.
