In an explosive documentary that will air next month, Al Jazeera plans to reveal corrupt Zimbabwean politicians.
The Qatar-based international news network says it will in March broadcast a series of undercover investigations on gold smuggling touching high offices in Zimbabwe
Reputable members of the ruling party and those connected to ZANU PF will be exposed in the documentary, according to award-winning journalist Hopewell Chin’ono, who made the announcement on Twitter.
Chin’ono said the corrupt individuals were secretly filmed by undercover journalists for two years. The officials’ unwitting confessions provide profound insight into how they go about looting money from public coffers.
The film has already been seen by a select group of journalists who provided insight into the expose.
Hopewell Chin’ono said:
International news network, Aljazeera will be broadcasting mind-blowing documentary films in March showing astonishing looting, plunder and laundering in Zimbabwe. The ZANU PF crooks and their surrogates were filmed undercover for 2 years, as they spoke about how they do it! The film producers have shown the films to a select group of corruption experts and journalists to look at, and give their comment on the exposures. The documentary films were made by the Al Jazeera Investigative Journalism Directorate. They filmed them since 2021.
Each time progressive Zimbabweans have complained about ZANUPF corruption, they have been asked to bring evidence.
Al Jazeera has done just that, it is not accusing anyone, the people speak for themselves.

News of the documentary was met with mixed reactions from Zimbabweans on Twitter. Below are some of the comments:
Ini hangu even ex wangu akandiuisira chinhu che2 years ago hahahaha that’s my past and my past will not justifiably stand in my present of the future in any way… It’s more like basing the future on a past when people move on and change. It’s irrelevant
I hope the documentary comes out soon..its already 2 years late…

They’ve been flighting the trailer for weeks now. I can’t wait for it to go public but m not too hopeful those implicated will be brought to book. I suspect the whole system is involved & just like the Command Agriculture revelations in the Marry Mubaiwa case, no resignations
Ambassador Angel has been involved in humanitarian projects. Way before he was even an Ambassador ! Projects that are worth more than everyone here’s salary combined ! If you haven’t done anything to help the community I suggest you keep quiet
