United Arab Emirates based company Drax International which was recently caught in a procurement storm has threatened legal action against publications whom they accuse of making unsubstantiated claims that they are in partnership and or associated with Zimbabwe's First Family.
The letter is a response to reports that the company is linked to Collins Mnangagwa.

In a letter signed by one llir Dedja , the company said they shall approach all publications that peddled this false information and demand unequivocal retractions.

Read the full letter below:
 
We have noted with concern that some defamatory publications continue to make unsubstantiated claims that we are in partnership and/or associated with Zimbabwe's first family. We have never met, communicated or done any business with any members of the first family.

In an article published by โ€˜The Anchor' on 2! April 2020 we stated that all our dealings are above board and that we do not work with any politicians in Zimbabwe. The same articles are devoid of credibility in that no attempt(s) were made to obtain comments from any of the individuals mentioned.


Further, no attempts were made to obtain our comments and views on these malicious allegations. All allegations associating us with politicians are calculated at discrediting our good service record internationally and in Zimbabwe.

All Zimbabwean procurement laws were followed by our compliance arm and we are delivering in terms of an agreement that is extant. Mr Dilesh Nguwaya is our sole representative in Zimbabwe and his mandate is limited.

We reserve our right to take legal action against publications that continue to publish falsehoods and associate us with politically exposed persons. We shall approach all publications that peddled this false information and demand unequivocal retractions. We shall sue all individuals propagating these falsehoods on social media.

Yours truly
llir Dedja
