President Emmerson Mnangagwa's nephew Edwin Manikai is the man behind the banning of the  use of foreign currency in Zimbabwe Professor Jonathan Moyo has alleged.

Manikai is a member of the 21 member Presidential Advisory Committee.

Moyo who said the PAC was now a de facto cabinet said, "It was not drafted by 21, in fact the number is not the original and some indications are that they are now 18.

"They work through subcommittees. The SI was done by the subcommittee that does legal stuff and it is headed by Edwin Manikai, a lawyer and Mnangagwa's nephew."

Award winning journalist Hopewell Chin'ono posted on Twitter recently that the SI142/2019 was written without Mthuli Ncube's knowledge and he was forced to defend it.

Confirming  Chin'ono statement Prof Moyo said, "The PAC which is full of Mnangagwa's cronies has become his defacto cabinet. PAC and not Mthuli Ncube drafted the SI142 and engineered ZANU PF corruption probe."
