Speaking on Al Jazeera, Norton MP Temba Mliswa claims that finance minister Ignatius Chombo was arrested with $10 million United States dollars.

Mliswa backs the military intervention and says that it was necessary because Grace Mugabe had usurped power from Mugabe. Said Mliswa:

Just for your own information, Minister Chombo’s house which was invaded and he was arrested. He had 10 million US dollars cash on him.


Mliswa said that former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa will take over from President Robert Mugabe. Mliswa could neither deny nor confirm that Mnangagwa is in Zimbabwe. He said that Mugabe’s mistake was to fire Mnangagwa.

Chombo is reported to have been arrested after gunfire was exchanged between his security and members of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) last night. Chombo is reported to be in custody after the ZDF arrested a number of ministers  and senior party officials over allegations of “committing crimes that are causing social and economic suffering in the country in order to bring them to justice.



      • Iwe, the report says $10 million US dollars and not $10 million US dollar notes. There is a difference here, Could have been in different currencies including the Nigeria Nairas and Zambian Kwacha but all together amounted to $10 million USD when converted

  1. It shows how corrupt G40 members were under the leadership of Grace Mugabe. Ordinary citizens are starving to death when others have cash to this amount in a house.

  2. I see a lot of reasonable people still not reading with understanding. The report said $10 Million dollar, not US currency. The US dollar was used as it is a internationally accepted currency and one can easily see the real value of the money.
