Norton Member of Parliament Temba Mliswa has come out guns blazing against journalists who are paid brown envelope by Ministers to write fake stories involving non-existent 9nvestments.  

In a frenzied Twitter thread on Monday Mliswa said, "We're tired of these headlines, Zimbabwe is a haven for "investors" what we want is the money. Investments must translate into money for the economy. We've been talking about platinum for a very long time and we need to see the fruits of those talks.

"We want money in the bank not headlines, who doesn't know some Ministers pay unscrupulous journos for good headlines? Print media is dubious at its best as we saw when I was implicated in a fake $400k bribe charge Herald had me pinned where the complainant had no cause."

Mliswa said genuine investors were not willing to give the country advance investments because they were not seeing the endgame.

"Genuine investors aren't prepared to give Zim even a dollar as an advance payment. The country and its people continue to suffer. For as long as people don't see the end value in their wealth improving, better healthcare, better education, job creation etc then it's all hot air."

He also took the opportunity to blasts the mining sector officials over the alleged rampant corrupt activities that are taking place there.

"The Gaika matter mustn't be taken lightly. It's pretty clear a lot is going on and what's going on doesn't augur well for Zimbabwe. What do property rights and rule of law mean? It's important that it's explained thoroughly for clarity's sake. Maybe we understand it differently

Why is ZCDC still trading in defiance of the Supreme Court ruling and Parly recommendations? Chitando as a beneficiary and in his weak and compromised state remains quiet

"Pursuant to Gaika there was Battlefields where Nduna was implicated; people were quiet. El Dorado the same. Now we've a situation where illegal miners run Zimbabwe, taking people's land and running riot. It's imperative those named exonerate themselves or face the full wrath of the law."
