Zanu-PF benefactor Kudakwashe Tagwirei is believed to have imported a $500,000 (before duty) 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom.

Tagwirei, who owns Sakunda and has several controversial deals with the government, was thrust into the vortex of the infighting last week after Zanu-PF apologist William Mutumanje, aka Acie Lumumba, claimed he was at the centre of a fuel cartel that included top Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) officials.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa's advisor Christopher Mutsvangwa yesterday launched an astonishing attack against Tagwirei, claiming that he is now a source of divisions in the presidium. Mutsvangwa also revealed that Tagwirei was being given preferential treatment in the allocation of foreign currency for the importation of fuel, which he said had created a monopoly in the fuel industry.

The war veterans' leader and one of the president's top allies' outbursts come amid reports that relations between Mnangagwa and Chiwenga have become sour.

A tweet on ZimLive revealed Tagwirei's new wheels, Said ZimLive, "#TakeThePain This $500,000 (before duty) 2018 Rolls Royce Phantom landed at the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport in Harare today. Airport sources telling us its registered to Kudakwashe Tagwirei, the Sakunda boss."
