Filmmaker and journalist Hopewell Chin'ono has won the Greenfield People Journalism Prize for Africa for his "investigative reporting on the Covid-19 procurement corruption by high profile ministers."

He shares the gong with Nigerian journalist David Hundeyin.

Mduduzi Mathuthu of ZimLive broke the news after reporting about a little-known company called Drax Consult SAGL, which is registered in international tax haven, Switzerland, and represented in Zimbabwe by Delish Nguwaya.

He also exposed how Zimbabwe paid 2-week old company US$2m, sparking Interpol probe which led to the arrest of former Health Minister Obadiah Moyo.

The #DemLoot composer joked, ""At least this is an award coming from Africa; there won't be any of those cynical remarks" in remarks.
