Foreign Affairs Minister, Sibusiso Moyo has dismissed allegations that remanded Drax International representative Delish Nguwaya is a holder of a Diplomatic passport.
Minister Moyo said records from the Registrar General indicate that Nguwaya is a genuine holder of an ordinary passport issued in 2011.
“Following social media reports of Sunday 21 June 2020 purporting that Delish Nguwaya is a holder of a Diplomatic Passport, I wish to inform the nation that as the custodians of Diplomatic Passports in Zimbabwe, my Ministry has no record of ever issuing one to him,”
“If indeed he has one it could have been fraudulently acquired and may those that have proof bring it to our attention. I wish to confirm that from the Registrar General’s records, Mr Nguwaya is a bonafide holder of an ordinary passport that was issued in Harare on the 4 of October 2011 and expires on the 3 of October 2021. The social media report therefore are not true and are meant to mischievously tarnish the image of Government” said Minister Moyo
Social media was awash with information that Nguwaya holds a diplomatic Passport prompting many, including former Minister of Tourism, Walter Mzembi questioning why he holds the passport.
Nguwaya is currently in remand prison on allegations that he lied to government that his company Drax International was a medical firm in a bid to be awarded tenders for Covid-19 medical supplies to the Health Ministry.
