During the Parliamentary hearings, small-scale millers alleged under oath that some large millers were receiving maize allocations far higher than they were supposed to receive as determined by their milling capacity, in connivance with GMB’s Operations Director, Lawrence Jasi.

The allegations were that this maize then would be illegally exported to DRC by a cartel that comprised of
1) haulage truck companies whose trucks carried copper exports from DRC and Zambia to South Africa and returned empty;
2) ZIMRA officials at Beitbridge border post that prepared falsified paperwork that claimed the trucks were carrying maize from South Africa;
and
3) millers who would load the trucks with subsidised maize.
