Vice President Kembo Mohadi is livid over briefcase companies that are being used for supplying good for the Covid pandemic that has drained resources poured into the Government coffers from both local and international donor community.

Journalist Hopewell Chin'ono who has come under fire for exposing dirty dealings implicating senior Government officials and President Emerson Mnangagwa's son Collins close links to a dubious company that supplies masks and testing kits at exorbitant prices posted on microblog Twitter that Mohadi want the mess cleared.

Chin'ono was singled out by acting Zanu PF spokesperson Patrick Chinamasa of soiling the First Family.

However his latest tweet on on Mondayrevealed that heads will soon roll in Government over suspected looting.

Chin'ono claimed that VP Mohadi acknowledged that there is deep corruption in the health ministry that need investigation.

He poured Mohadi as saying, "There is collaboration by Perm Sec Dr Mavis Sibanda & Flora Sifeku at Natpham in frustrating reputable companies & opting for the briefcase ones. Minister is part of this. briefcase companies end up winning the tenders as reputable ones are not there," wrote VP Mohadi.

The move is exposing double standards by Government health officials who are working closely with bogus companies to loot donations from local and international community following the cry to help Zimbabwe amid Covid crisis.
