• Zimbabwe splashes out on three new aircrafts to revive industry

    Zimbabwe has bought two Boeing 777 aircraft and an Embraer from Malaysia. The planes will be leased to a new outfit -- Zimbabwe Airways -- until the national carrier returns to profitability. Harare had agreed with an unidentified Malaysian firm to buy four Boeing 777 planes for $70 million but so far has only paid for two. The government has also paid for a small Embraer plane and plans to add another five to the fleet. The new planes are owned by a state-owned special purpose vehicle called Zimbabwe Aviation Leasing Company. The government says the aircraft will be used by Zimbabwe Airways, whose ownership was not immediately disclosed. The Boeing planes have a lifespan of 15 to 20 years.

REVEALED: Mugabe 'was leasing out land to whites', says report. Harare - Former Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe has been leasing out some of his family’s farm land to white businessmen – even though he threatened others for doing that while he was in office, a private newspaper reported at the weekend. As recently as late October, Mugabe said black owners who invited whites back to rent and work seized fields would lose their farms. But the Zimbabwe Independent reports that the former first family was doing exactly that: leasing out part of Mazowe Citrus Estate to a company in which some of the main shareholders were white. The Mugabes seized a large portion of Mazowe Citrus Estate several years back. It is in a rich farming district north of Harare. A top shareholder at CFI Holdings, Hamish Rudland, told the paper that Mugabe had approached them through intermediaries when he was still president. Mugabe said he was impressed with the way the company ran another farm near Harare. Mugabe's double standards. Rudland "confirmed entering into a deal with the Mugabe family at a time they were discouraging and even threatening mostly new land owners from working with white farmers", the Zimbabwe Independent said. Under the deal Mugabe was to get 5% of turnover. The revelation has exposed Mugabe's double standards: he was outspoken in his criticism of party members, including some traditional chiefs, who entered into partnerships with whites. "If you don't want to use the land, tell us openly not to clandestinely enter into arrangements with former white farmers coming from Johannesburg," Mugabe told a council meeting of more than 200 chiefs in Bulawayo in late October. "We will chase both you and your white farmer from that land. This land was fought for," Mugabe was quoted as saying by state media at the time. The Zimbabwe Independent said the former president and family members between them owned a total of 15 809 hectares of land. Show me your opinion in comment.

President Mnangagwa to impound Mugabe's aeroplanes, orders minister Gumbo to bring them home. President Emmerson Mnangagwa's government is moving to impound aeroplanes linked to deposed Robert Mugabe's family, which stands accused of acquiring the aircraft through taxpayers' money. Mugabe’s son-in-law Simba Chikore, who was briefly chief operating officer at struggling flag carrier Air Zimbabwe, as well as the increasingly under scrutiny Transport minister Joram Gumbo, were reported at the time to have been intimately involved in the formation of Zimbabwe Airways, as well as the purchase of the aircraft. Well-placed sources told the Daily News yesterday that Mnangagwa had apparently ordered that one of the planes — a Boeing 777 jet liner which is arriving at the Robert Mugabe International Airport today (arrived already) — be immediately parked among Air Zimbabwe’s fleet upon landing, until a probe establishing how Zim Airways acquired its fleet is completed. Apart from investigating the funding of the planes, Mnangagwa is also said to be keen to know the exact shareholding structure of the airline, in the light of its allegedly “opaque” set-up. “Unless the probe exonerates the role players, chances are that these planes will be seized and added to the Air Zim fleet. The pressure has also been on Gumbo to bring the planes home while investigations continue. “Alternatively, he was told that if the planes could not be brought back home, he should at least recover every penny paid for them,” one of the sources familiar with the issue said. On his part, Gumbo confirmed to the Daily News from the Malaysian capital city of Kuala Lumpur yesterday that one of the Boeing 777s would be arriving in Harare this afternoon — with insiders saying he had been ordered to go to Malaysia by Mnangagwa to make sure that the plane was flown to Harare. “I can confirm that we are bringing the plane tomorrow (today) … landing time is at 12pm,” Gumbo, who flew to the Asian country on Sunday, said. The Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe (CAAZ) also confirmed that the plane would be arriving in Harare today. “The authority wishes to advise that one Boeing 777 aircraft under Zimbabwe Aviation Leasing Company (ZALC) will arrive tomorrow (today), 11 April at 1200hrs from Malaysia. The guest of honour will be … minister Patrick Chinamasa,” CAAZ said. According to other sources, the plane which is coming today is already registered as Flight Z-RGM, apparently a short code for Zimbabwe-Robert Gabriel Mugabe. The plane is one of the four 12-year-old aircraft which Malaysian Airlines wanted to dispose of at a total cost of $70 million last year, with two of them having already been paid for by Zim Airways. The Daily News also learnt yesterday that the initial deal by the Malaysians was offered to Air Zimbabwe, but was “inexplicably” taken over by the new airline at the time that Chikore was still Air Zim’s chief operating officer — following his controversial earlier appointment at the struggling national airline by Gumbo. “There is lots of stuff that is being said about the planes and Zim Airways, and it is everyone’s hope that the planned probe will put to rest some of the allegations if they are not true. Some of the claims are to the effect that Zim Airways was allegedly formed to plunder State resources, and hence their contested seizure of the opportunity to buy the Malaysian planes. “It is also claimed that the strategy was also to fast-track the demise of the debt-ridden Air Zim by bringing in a strong competitor which, in addition to plying local routes, would also be granted permits to service the lucrative European routes which Air Zim cannot service anymore,” one of the sources said. The abrupt departure of Chikore from Air Zim last year, apparently to spearhead the establishment of Zim Airways, had further heightened speculation that the project belonged to the former ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ► Hot news: https://goo.gl/J7mUhU ► ANC: https://goo.gl/x9xRAu ► Scandal: https://goo.gl/YGe8cw ► Zimbawe updates: https://goo.gl/2MJUjp ..........................................................................................

THE dodgy project involving Air Zimbabwe (AirZim) and new airline Zimbabwe Airways is getting murkier, amid allegations that some senior government officials are deliberately sabotaging the debt-ridden national flag carrier to pave way for the new private airline, which will also be emblazoned with national colours.Aviation sources told the Zimbabwe Independent this week that Zim Airways planes, which were bought using public funds provided by the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe, will soon land in the country.The planes include four Boeing 777 bought in Malaysia and two Embraer ERJ145 bought from the United States.Last year, the Independent reported that Transport minister Jorum Gumbo and former AirZim chief operating officer Simba Chikore, who is former president Robert Mugabe’s son-in-law, have been assisting in setting up the private airline at the expense of the flag carrier, AirZim, which fell under their purview and supervision, raising a serious conflict of interest on their part.There were indications that following Mugabe’s ouster via a military coup in November last year, the deal had crumbled, as President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his deputy Constantino Chiwenga, were opposed to the arrangement.The involvement of their allies has, however, reportedly softened their stance.Aviation sources say there was a well-calculated plan to destroy AirZim to the benefit of Zim Airways.“The initial plan was simple; use money from RBZ to buy planes; register them under Zim Airways; get an air operator licence, then compete with AirZim, but because AirZim has one plane and they have six, AirZim would definitely lose out and eventually collapse,” said an aviation source.“The plan has changed a bit and is now centred on ensuring that a partnership between AirZim and Zim Airways is reached along the way.Zim Airways will then bring in their planes and a bit of capital, thereby assuming control of the company, which will result in board and managerial changes.”The plan, aviation sources say, also involves ensuring that AirZim does not get funding support to cripple its operations.Gumbo this week, however, told the Independent that he had facilitated Zim Airways to purchase aircraft from Air Malaysia after AirZim failed to raise funds to buy the equipment.Information gathered shows that Zimbabwe Airways is owned by a local firm, Zimbabwe Aviation Leasing Company (ZALC).An enquiry with the Deeds Office in Harare indicated ZALC was registered under file number 3015/12.The file was, however, missing from the office, meaning the directors could not be immediately ascertained.Aviation experts say although it is saddled with debt, AirZim can be revived if the company’s strategic turnaround plan is implemented.AirZim immediately requires US$45 million to be operational, according to AirZim’s Strategic Turnaround Plan (2018-2020).The airline requires US$26 million to settle its foreign debt; US$6 million to buy three Embraer ERJ145; US$4,6 million for International Air Tran

Farm manager Charles Zimora is a very optimistic man.The optimism stems from his experience at the Hunyani Farm, about 120 km north-west of Zimbabwe's capital city of Harare.In 2011, the Zimbabwe-China Wanjin Agricultural Development Company began leasing the farm from the Chinoyi University of Technology. Zimora was on the farm team at that time. He said he had seen the transformation of the farm from "an ordinary farm" to a hi-tech one.

[Photos] Zimbabwe unveils Boeing 777 with Mugabe call sign, Z-RGM. Zimbabwe has bought two Boeing 777 aircraft and an Embraer plane from Malaysia, the finance minister said on Wednesday, adding the planes would be leased to a new local airline until national carrier Air Zimbabwe returned to profitability. Patrick Chinamasa said Harare had agreed with an unidentified Malaysian firm to buy four Boeing 777 planes for $70 million but had so far paid for two. The government had also paid for a small Embraer plane and plans to add five more such aircraft. The new planes are owned by a state-owned special purpose vehicle called Zimbabwe Aviation Leasing Company. During a ceremony to receive the first Boeing 777 in Harare, Chinamasa said the aircraft would be used by Zimbabwe Airways, a new carrier whose ownership was not immediately disclosed. --- Thank you for watching our video.

Business / Companies by Staff Reporter Troubled national airline, Air Zimbabwe, is hunting for a new CEO to replace former boss, Captain Ripton Muzenda. The firm has been battling to rediscover itself after years of poor performance allegedly due to bad corporate management.Cpt Muzenda was fired by the Professor Chipo Dyanda-led Air Zimbabwe board last month on allegations of declining to implement a staff rationalisation exercise that was designed to save the firm up to $2,4 million. In a statement, Air Zimbabwe said it is "looking for an experienced and strategic thinking executive to oversee the organisation's core operations and systems"."This is an aviation specialised command job requiring an overall operational responsibility for all airline's core operations." The ideal candidate is expected to providing strategic direction to the organisation; implement the airline's vision, mission and objectives; coordinate its business activities and provide strong leadership that ensures the business is run professionally and profitably.The new CEO is also expected to grow "the business through forging strategic links and partnerships, (and) establishing strong corporate governance culture within the organisation". Air Zimbabwe is looking forward to recruiting a holder of a relevant first degree, aviation industry professional qualifications, at least 10 years managerial experience of which five years must have been at senior management level in the airline industry.Transport and Infrastructure Development Minister Joram Gumbo, recently confirmed that Cpt Muzenda had been sacked by the Air Zimbabwe board after a fallout over issues to do with turning around the organisation."There is nothing wrong about people losing their jobs if there is a problem. I know very well about what happened with Ripton Muzenda, but I don't want to talk about someone's life in public because he still has some dignity to maintain. What I know is that he had his own problems about the turnaround and the timelines, which he had been given by which to do certain things . ."So there were talks between him and the board until such a time that they censured him and then they agreed to part ways with him amicably because there were issues on the targets the board wanted him to meet," said Dr Gumbo. Cpt Muzenda took over the reins at Air Zimbabwe in August last year, and ran the firm for just over 15 months.He had taken over from Edmund Makona, who was acting CEO since 2013. Mr Makona had also taken over from Mr Innocent Mavhunga who had replaced Dr Peter Chikumba, whose contract was not renewed in 2011. This makes the Air Zimbabwe CEO's job a volatile one, which requires someone with physical and mental stamina to withstand the pressures associated with it.Air Zimbabwe is also in the hunt for a chief operating officer to replace Mr Simba Chikore. Mr Chikore resigned in November after giving a three notice. Dr Gumbo told The Herald Business recently that Mr Chikore - who is son-in-law of former President Mugabe - left the parastatal reportedly to negotiate the coming in of another airline, Zimbabwe Airways. Zimbabwe Airways is owned largely by Zimbabweans in the Diaspora through an investment vehicle called Zimbabwe Aviation Leasing Company..

THE military must return to the barracks while Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government has a “window of opportunity to demonstrate commitment to a democratic, just, healthy and prosperous Zimbabwe”, a strategic US government official has said. Acting Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Africa Stephanie Sullivan was presenting his paper titled “The Future of Zimbabwe” to the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations Subcommittee on African Affairs Tuesday. Sullivan said “the U.S. engagement with the newly-inaugurated Mnangagwa and his administration must be based on demonstrated behavior, not rhetorical intentions”. “Our policy of re-engagement will focus on constitutional democracy, free and fair elections, respect for human rights and the rule of law, and an improved trade and investment climate, among other issues.... . . . ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ► Hot News: https://goo.gl/1YWszS ► See more: https://goo.gl/xag7BQ ► AKA CHEATING ON BONANG: https://goo.gl/kBeAiq ► Zodwa Wabantu: https://goo.gl/6ZduiJ ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you feel good, please support the author by subscribing to our channel to track the next video. * SUBSCRIBE TO OUR CHANNEL: https://goo.gl/rCXw8d ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ► See More: https://goo.gl/rCXw8d

.Mugabe Has Been Leasing Out Land That He Grabbed. Former president Robert Mugabe is reported to have been leasing out land that he seized from Interfesh Holdings’ Mazoe citrus estates. Mugabe and his wife, former first lady Grace Mugabe have been leasing out the land to businessman Hamish Rudland. This is a direct contradiction to what Mugabe himself always said at rallies where he attacked people who were accused of leasing land back to former white farmers arguing that they wanted to reverse the gains of the land reform programme. The Mugabe family is reported to have seized 414 hectares of Interfresh’s land holdings, which translates to 39 percent of the arable land. Mugabe’s family and relatives are alleged to own 15 809 hectares of land across Zimbabwe. After failing to fully utilize the land, Mugabe is said to have invited Rudland to enter into a joint venture in farming. As part of the deal, Mugabe would get 5 percent of the turnover while Rudland would use the land. Rudland confirmed the deal and told the weekly publication, The Zimbabwean Independent: We were approached by the former president, through his people with a view to helping him run the estate after the success of our Glenara Estates. I think he was impressed by what he had seen at Glenara and from where sit, we could not say no. Who could have said no to his request? But it is a purely commercial transaction on our part; nothing else. We were and we still are not involved in politics, in any way, as we are businesspeople or investors. Earlier this year, Grace Mugabe was reported to have grabbed the state-owned Mazowe Dam and prohibited villagers from using it. 🌴 Get Free Subscribe Here: - https://goo.gl/QrjDRC 🌴 Website: https://goo.gl/UasZwB 🌴 Twitter: - https://goo.gl/WdWB1i 🌴 Plus: - https://goo.gl/4viMNi 🙏Thanks For Watching.

Shocking Details: Why Mnangagwa ordered minister Gumbo to bring home Mugabe's planes quickly. As the spotlight remains firmly focused on the country’s controversial new airline, Zimbabwe Airways — which has been linked to the family of former president Robert Mugabe — disturbing allegations are emerging that the purchase price of its aeroplanes bought from Malaysia Airlines was allegedly inflated by more than $100 million, from $70 million to a staggering $180 million. Highly-placed sources told the Daily News yesterday that worryingly, no plausible explanation had so far been received as to how this had happened and to whom the “extra money” had gone to — a development which had apparently prompted President Emmerson Mnangagwa to initiate a probe into the deepening saga of the new airline. This comes as the government took delivery of one of the new planes on Wednesday, a Boeing 777 jetliner, as part of the opaque deal that will see a total of four wide-bodied planes eventually being sourced from Malaysia. At the centre of the controversy is a secretive company, the Zimbabwe Aviation Leasing Company (ZALC) — which all along was said to be fronted by Zimbabweans living in the Diaspora, but is now suddenly said to belong to the government. ZALC owns Zim Airways, and its documentation is still not publicly available — including at the offices of the Registrar of Companies. The well-placed sources who spoke to the Daily News yesterday said an “unhappy” Mnangagwa was “seized with the Zim Airways matter”, which he apparently believed was part of “a grand scheme to steal public funds” by people who had the backing of Mugabe and his much-despised wife Grace when the nonagenarian was still in power. “All in all, a total of $140 million cannot be accounted for as we speak, and that is why Mnangagwa had to order (Transport minister Joram) Gumbo to immediately bring home the planes which were bought secretly using public funds. “In addition, Gumbo was supposed to bring two planes, but upon arrival in Malaysia on Monday he discovered that the extensive modifications which engineers had recommended on the other plane for it to be able to fly again had not been completed,” one of the sources said. Another source said “a red flag” had been raised when the purchase price of the four planes ballooned to $180 million from the originally quoted $70 million — which money the government had already apparently released.“No one can say where this money went to, as the Malaysians have no idea about it, and no one locally can provide definitive answers about what happened. It’s a mega problem,” the second source said. But Finance minister Patrick Chinamasa disputed all these claims yesterday, telling the Daily News that he had only instructed the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) to float Treasury Bills to the tune of $41 million for the purchase of the planes. “I gave an instruction to the RBZ to issue Treasury Bills to raise the money for the planes and they raised $41 million which we used to pay for the planes. I don’t know who is raising the figure to $180 million. There was never any such money,” he said. RBZ governor John Mangudya and Gumbo could not be reached for comment yesterday. In the meantime, a senior government official has also accused Chinamasa and Gumbo of “misrepresenting facts” when the Treasury chief claimed on Wednesday that ZALC was a government company. “Gumbo and Chinamasa must not hide behind their fingers. This project was never a government project at its inception, despite the fact that it was financed by public funds. This is why the plane which has been received carries personalised registration. “All government-registered aircraft have Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe (Caaz) registration codes. If this aircraft belonged to government, it would have followed the registration procedures followed when registering the Air Zim fleet,” the official said. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ► Hot news: https://goo.gl/J7mUhU ► ANC: https://goo.gl/x9xRAu ► Scandal: https://goo.gl/YGe8cw ► Zimbawe updates: https://goo.gl/2MJUjp ..........................................................................................

ORIGINAL ARTICLE: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-zimbabwe-farmers/zimbabwe-to-give-white-farmers-99-year-leases-like-black-counterparts-idUSKBN1FK2SK TRANSCRIPT: HARARE - Zimbabwe will issue 99-year leases to white farmers, according to a government circular, after new President Emmerson Mnangagwa said he would end discrimination along racial lines in agriculture. The agriculture ministry circular to staff, seen by Reuters, says white farmers should now be issued the same 99-year leases as black farmers. "Please be informed that the minister of Lands, Agriculture and Resettlement has directed that all remaining white farmers be issued 99-year leases instead of the 5-year leases as per the previous arrangement," said the circular, dated Jan. 19. Earlier this month a government document showed that Zimbabwe is considering establishing a special tribunal to determine the value of compensation and how to pay it to white farmers who have lost their land since 2000.

By Maxwell Sibanda Last week, a Zimbabwe Airways plane, registered as Z-RGM, arrived at the , the first of four B777s controversially purchased from Malaysia. Malaysian Airlines decommissioned the 777s following the disappearance of two similar planes, including the doomed MH370 flight. The government has, however, been sending mixed signals over the acquisition of new planes that the State media once claimed were meant for the revival of Air Zimbabwe although it emerged that the planes are owned by a private company, Zimbabwe Airways suspected to have close links with former president Robert Mugabe’s family. Now government has come out and claimed ownership of the controversial airline, a claim that contradicts Transport minister Joram Gumbo who has consistently said that Zimbabwe Aviation Leasing Company (ZALC) owned Zimbabwe Airways. Speaking at a function at Robert Mugabe International Airport to receive the first plane, Finance minister Patrick Chinamasa said ZALC was a government company which it had used to acquire the planes from Malaysia, allegedly as a strategy to evade sanctions. “I am here to categorically state that the aeroplane standing outside is the property and an asset of the government of Zimbabwe. I know speculation has been rife that the airline belonged to the former first family. That is false. “They have no interest of any kind in this aircraft. I am also here to make it clear that Simba Chikore (Mugabe’s son-in-law) has no shareholding at all, directly or indirectly,” Chinamasa said. “We kept the deal under wraps to avoid the trap of sanctions. As you know, we are under sanctions and with the hostility that we have received; it was difficult to do business. “Each time we said we were going to one country for business, lots of emails would be sent there and we would not get any favour from the hosts. So, we decided that it was best to keep our heads cool and remain focused until the deal was done,” said Chinamasa. The Finance minister added that ZALC would lease the new planes to . “We realised that there was no reason we should keep pouring money into a bottomless pit. We wanted a strong airline to service the interests of the country … to bring in tourists and business to the country, and for that we needed a strong airline,” he said. Crisis Coalition spokesperson Tabani Moyo said the whole deal smells of corruption. “Governments the world over are supposed to be coherent mechanisms through which accountable decisions are communicated to the public. The contradictions by the minister of Transport with the minister of Finance initially show that there is more to what meets the eye. “Initially the Transport minister alluded to the fact that the new airline Zimbabwe Airways is owned by Zimbabweans in , only to change upon being squeezed, that it’s owned by the government. “Now the government buys planes and leases them to ‘the government’. I think the people of Zimbabwe deserve better,” said Moyo. Social commentator Ras
