Zimbabwe Airways saga deepens

Zimbabwe Airways saga deepens
Published: 12 April 2018
In a dramatic development which further shines the spotlight on Zimbabwe Airways - an opaque new airline which was suspected to have close links with former president Robert Mugabe's family - the government said yesterday that it owned the controversial airline which has acquired four wide-bodied planes from Malaysia.

The surprising claim contradicts Transport minister Joram Gumbo who has consistently said that the little-known corporate outfit, the Zimbabwe Aviation Leasing Company owned Zimbabwe Airways.

Speaking at a function at Robert Mugabe International Airport yesterday to receive the first Zim Airways plane - a Boeing B777 - Finance minister Patrick Chinamasa stunned journalists when he said ZALC was a government company which it had used to acquire the planes from Mayalsia, allegedly as a strategy to overcome sanctions.
