'Zimbabwe Airways is a privately owned Zimbabwean airline of Zim, headquartered on the property of Harare International Airport, in Harare.

Background

The ownership of the airline is murky with Minister of Transport Joram Gumbo insisting that the airline is owned by a consortium of local and foreign-based Zimbabwean business people. However, other publications contend that the airline is owned by President Robert Mugabe and his family. The allegations came after the company registration documents were discovered to be missing at Company Registration. The fact that Transport Minister Jorum Gumbo and Air Zimbabwe Chief Operating Officer Simba Chikore were influential in negotiating for the planes from Malaysia only raised the suspicions.
