Zimbabwe’s Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development, George Guvamatanga has claimed that the country did not lose any money in the deal with Drax International.
His remarks contradict earlier reports which suggested that the country lost over US$60 million after Drax International supplied medical equipment and personal protective equipment (PPEs) at inflated prices.
He made the remarks while speaking to ZBC on Sunday in a wide-ranging interview which came when the then Health Minister, Obadiah Moyo has since been sacked over the deal.
Guvamatanga claims that when the issue made headlines and dominated social media, it had since been raised in Cabinet by President Emmerson Mnangagwa and corrective measures already being implemented.
