It is reported that Wicknell Chivayo, a convicted fraudster and dealer, is not the owner of Intratrek Zimbabwe. He is the Zimbabwean face for South African-based Zambian national Ibrahim Yusuf. Intratrek Zimbabwe, according to the company’s website, was founded in 1994 and is headquartered in South Africa. Yusuf’s son Tariq is the company’s executive director tasked with “implementing the group strategy of expansion through acquisitions and organic growth”. However Yusuf is the driving force behind the business and maintains an executive position, ensuring that the company continues to expand.
However, the reality about the Intratrek trio is far from glossy as Yusuf and Chivayo both have criminal backgrounds in addition to shared modus operandi based on cultivating relations with senior government officials in order to win tenders without proven capacity of executing.
Yusuf was linked to a Zambian Mandrax smuggling network in the mid-1980s and he was named in a 1985 Zambian court judgment. In 2010, Zambia’s Drug Enforcement Commission told our sister newspaper Mail & Guardian newspaper Yusuf “is a well-known drug trafficker”.
