Former Netone Boss Engineer Reward Kangai says former ICT Minister Supa Mandiwanzira got him fired as Netone Chief Executive Officer because he refused to facilitate the payment of $4 Million United States dollars to Megawatt which Supa was in cahoots with.
In his latest tweets, Kangai divulged letters written by the Permanent Secretary of ICT Postal and Courier services Engineer Sam Kundishora to the Office of the president, explicitly stating that the former CEO was being persecuted for resisting the megawatt deal
ICT Perm Sec Sam Kundishora exonerated Kangai and confirmed that indeed the former Minister got him fired for not playing ball.Then Netone Chairman Alex Marufu and other executives recruited from Metbank were investigated and it must be noted that the former Minister of ICT Mandiwanzira was however acquitted.
In his papers Kangai said ”…. 1. I was sent on Forced Leave on 14 March 2016 following a series of stories in the herald of 12 Feb 2016….withdraw the funds for Netones capital development”
”2. Following the legal action that Netone had started against MetBank to
recover debt, I was unexpectedly summoned to the Minister’s office,
who by then, was Hon. Supa Mandiwanzira, who had been appointed in
mid-December 2014. when I got into his office, I found Mr ozias Bvute, a
director of MetBank in the office, sitting next to the Minister, Mr Bvute
started explaining that due to liquidity challenges, Metbank owed several
parastatals but with the assistance at the Reserve Bank, they had made
arrangements for payment over a period at 3 years but were having
difficulties with this parastatal Netone, with his fingers pointing at me.
The Acting Permanent secretary, Mr Cosmas Chigwamba was also present
at that meeting.”
”It was then agreed that a meeting be held between
Netone and Metbank to agree on a payment plan. As we left the
Ministers office with Mr chigwamba, he wondered why Mr ozias Bvute
was brazenly arrogant, when his Bank owed Netone monies. I later read
the NSSA Forensic Audit report and noted that Metbank executives met
with the newly appointed Labour and Public Services Minister, Mrs
Prisca Mupfumira on 17 Dec 2014, getting her to apply pressure on NSSA
management to issue a loan of US$10 million to Metbank, yet NSSA Risk
department had a negative risk assessment of MetBank.”
”The matter has
since resulted in her being charged for corruption tor allegedly receiving
a payment of usd 40 000 from Metaank, yet the MetBank
executives, who would have made the alleged bribery payment, are still
to be charged, almost 2 years later.”
Clearly Engineer Kangai has a bone to chew with his former boss and former Minister of ICT Supa Mandiwanzira.He argues though that Netone was forced to transfer Usd$ 700 000 to Metbank and that money disappeared because then Minister of ICT Supa Mandiwanzira owed Metbank Usd$ 2 Million.
When Engineer Reward filed letters of demand to Metbank, it really frustrated the whole cartel hence knives out baying for his head.Supa fired one person from Potraz because he refused to move their account to Metbank. which is owned by his colleague Obvious Bvute and Kamushinda.Reward says Supa tried to externalise Usd $ 4 Million to Mauritius through a company called Megawatt which is linked to ZTE and Kangai refused to pay the Usd $ 4 Million because the transaction was unprocedural.
In his letter to the concerned institutions Mr Kangai copied His Excellency the President of Zimbabwe ED Mnangagwa, the Ministry of ICT, Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission, Ministry of Finance, Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe and everyone directly involved stating and i qoute…
”3. I went back to the office and requested the Netone legal staff to put on hold the lawsuit against Metbank and convene a meeting with them to
resolve the matter but for more than 3 weeks, Metbank officials were not
forthcoming despite concerted efforts by our legal staff to arrange for a
meeting, so I gave the green light to continue with the legal route, which
culminated in April 2015 with Metbank signing a need at settlement
wherein they agreed to pay the debt within 5 months time, starting in
Mary 2015, which would have meant that by end of November 2015, …”
It is pot and clara Kangai was subbotaged for not doing what his boss Mandiwanzira wanted to enrichen himself at the expense of sound business management for the parastatal he headed then culminating to him being relieved of his duties early 2016 as a result.
