South African based business tycoon Frank Buyanga has accused President Emmerson Mnangagwa's family and the Office of the President (a euphemism for the dreaded Central Intelligence Organisation) for interfering in the child custody case between him and his estranged girlfriend Chantelle Muteswa.
In an emotive letter to the Secretary of the Judiciary Services Commission Buyanga said one Collins Mnangagwa and members of the President Office have been communicating with judges and the Minister of Justice to sway judgments in favor of Chantelle.

Read the full letter below:

Sometime in 2010 a negative judgment was passed against me and I accepted such judgment as I did not want to make an issue. However, my intelligence infrastructure in  Zimbabwe noted that a certain person from the Mnangagwa family called the Honourable Justice Manzunzu's phone no less than 15 times before the delivery of the judgment.

I have been furnished with evidence that one Collins Mnangagwa residing at Elshaddai road has been assisting Chantelle Muteswa in her shenanigans. As he is the son of the  President I decided not to act against him as the President is an old friend of mine and would rather  keep evidence of this abuse of office for a later stage

Over the past week, a close companion of the Mnangagwa family namely Dylish Nguwaya has been communicating with Justice Manzunzu. Malian Zorodzai Chiswa who also has links to the Mutuswa family has also been communicating with Justice Manzunzu. Whilst I have the greatest respect and trust in Justice Manzunzu too many adverse inferences can be drawn which affect his neutrality over the issue.

His communication with members of the Mnangagwa family and others close to Chantelle Muteswa leave a  lot more questions than answers.

It is also in my records that officers from the president's office have approached the Minister of Justice as well as judges to try and interfere in their work which goes against the constitution of Zimbabwe. I do not and will not stand to have the Executive interfere with the judiciary as there should be separation of powers to preserve the rule of law.

I kindly urge that the above inferences are looked into and matters allocated in an impartial manner
