The Office of the President and Cabinet has seized control from the Energy and Power Development ministry of the controversial $83 million Dema Diesel Power Plant in a move aimed at ring fencing and protecting political cronies behind the deal.

President Mugabe's in law Derrick Chikore brother to Bona's husband Simba has an interest in the deal which was initially pegged at $194 million a year.

While the OPC has been supervising the project, sources said Mugabe's office has now taken hands on role in the deal taking over the functions of the Energy Ministry.
