Alex Tawanda Magaisa, a law lecturer in the United Kingdom has suggested that government officials might be taking advantage of the fight against the coronavirus to engage in underhand dealings.
We present his twitter thread below.
Critics warned that the #COVID19 pandemic presents a field day for corrupt persons. This thread connects the dots concerning test kits from Namibia to Zimbabwe. Was this a donation disguised as a sale?
9. I have sampled comments from Namibian Twitter. Some are sympathetic but many wonder how and why Namibia could donate test kits when it also needed them. “How can we donate something we don’t have?” asks one. “We don’t even manufacture them, lol” another laughs.FeedbackOur status as an African pity case is evident in Namibian Twitter, some expressing Pan Africanist sentiments. “Zimbabwe is genuinely in need of help. Why can’t we help out if we can?” a kind voice says. “Solidarity with Zim!” screams another. But it’s business, apparently

Baya *405# utenge neEcoCash11. But other Namibians are more circumspect. They smell foul play. “Sounds like Zimbabwe Government stole test kits now they are accusing us of gifting them” says one. “If it happened lawfully why are Namibian authorities denying it? … Someone might have sold the kits”@OpenParlyZw had also reported same information. This information was from a Cabinet Briefing by the Zimbabwean Government on 21 April 2020 confirming receipt of 4499 RRTK from Namibia. The BIG question still remains – was it a donation or purchase from Namibia?So there is no doubt that the 4499 RRTK came from Namibia. It’s also not in doubt that Jaji Investments invoiced & was paid US$66375 for them. But Namibia does not manufacture test kits. It was also receiving donations from China. Something doesn’t add up.
