Kereke's letter to Mujuru: Part II

HARARE - 8.9 In the wild, where there is no Constitution in the jungles of the beasts, flora and fauna, even elephants have learnt through convention that they must tolerate and co-exist with the minute species of ants, termites, dung beetles and worms as these play a vital role of balancing the ecosystem on which the giants forage for their own sustenance and survival.

8.10 The trinity of government in the balance of powers for the State matrix behooves the Executive to formulate and implement government policies, the legislature to formulate laws and exert oversight on the Executive as well as representing the masses that voted us into power, whilst the judiciary does interpret the law for good order.

The realm of courts and their functionality is, thus, clearly a judicial function that cannot be and must not be expropriated by the Executive without breaching the fundamental law of the land.

8.11 Can the Hon. Vice President also kindly take note that on 23 October, 2013, the Constitutional Court of Zimbabwe clearly ruled as unlawful the dehumanising act of humiliation I had to endure when I was summarily kicked out of Parliament in broad view of the whole nation, and all this to try and please one Alias Musakwa at my unlawful expense. I elected not to litigate against this because courts should be the last resort if people can speak to one another to straighten their differences.

CASE OF SELECTIVE APPLICATION OF ZANU PF PROCESSES: DR KEREKE-DR GONO NEXUS

9.1 Hon Vice President, I have noted with curiosity the decision by some sections of Zanu PF to want to appoint Dr Gideon Gono to the position of Senator yet he has not even a week in Zanu PF structures, let alone qualifying on the party’s set guidelines for participation in Parliament.

9.2 Only recently I was treated like an outcast on account of the allegation that I was not in the party structures. How is Dr Gono different from my case?

9.3 What would the people say about the party and its applications of its own constitution?

Wise counsel says politics is a repetitive game of iteration where time and again, political parties must and will need to face the people to vote for them in successive plebiscites. The path of intertemporal equilibrium in politics must be and it is that which anticipates and avoids potential dangers caused by current actions on future polls.

9.4 This is the key to longevity in politics and evidence has shown that leaders who stay long in power, for instance over 3 decades in succession have carefully mastered the ability to sensitively and carefully work with and for the people, always anticipating and objectively sieving ‘out from current actions those irresponsible attitudes and precipitous actions that can breed future setbacks to ones’ political ambitions.

9.5 This wise counsel is particularly apt to Zanu PF where the opium of the resounding success in the recent polls might cause some to almost forget, self-annihilation style, that there will once again be future elections and that the people will definitely speak through their vote.

10.REASONS WHY DR KEREKE IS UNDER SIEGE

10.1 Hon Vice President, I have now become convinced that someone must have poisoned the way you look at me through falsehoods.

10.2 May you kindly take note that it is completely not true that I ever compromised any State secrets or written any report whatsoever about you as alleged in some quarters. This is fact.

10.3 To the contrary, I am being persecuted for the steadfast stance I have taken and continue to take against the multiple violations of the law and the country’s interests by Dr Gideon Gono whom the nation has learnt is another preferred candidate for the party.

10.4 For the record I list below examples of the breaches of law which Dr Gono did which Parliament, the Zimbabwe Republic Police and the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission must fully probe and ensure that justice is served.

I wish to note that I have surrendered the concrete proofs to relevant authorities such that they are now in a position to easily relate with what I am highlighting to you Hon Vice President when you check with them.

(a) Dr Gono took US$37,5 million; ZAR1,4 million; and £21,511 belonging to the State and converted it to his own use. Authorities now have evidence proving this and the wheels of justice will turn.

(b) Dr Gono provided the Director General, Rt Gen H Bonyongwe with millions of dollars from State funds at the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe via a commercial bank through a company called Brinsky Investments (Private) Limited for his own use.

(c) Dr Gono circulated Cabinet Minutes and sensitive military files to hostile foreign governments in clear breach of the Official Secrets Act. Proofs have been submitted to relevant authorities.

(d) Dr Gono partook in and masked the multiple million dollar fraud that took place at Interfin Bank.

Government of Zimbabwe lost US$17,4 million in this fraud. This is the reason why Interfin Bank was placed under an unusually extended curatorship which set a record in the whole world. The necessary proofs have been submitted to relevant authorities.

(e) Dr Gono sold Zimbabwe’s gold bullion to a private sector jewellery company in Saudi Arabia at 34 percent discount at a time Zimbabwe was reeling under foreign exchange shortages.

Proofs have been tendered.

(f) Shares worth millions of dollars belonging to the State were stolen from the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe at a time children were dying of drug shortages in rural areas.

(g) Dr Gono bribed the officials at the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission with vast sums of foreign exchange in holiday allowances and houses stashed in shelf companies. Proofs have been tendered.

This is why the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission is failing to act against Dr Gono despite the various reports submitted to them.

(h) Dr Gono prejudiced the State of hundreds of thousands of dollars through false travel claims. Proofs have been tendered to the authorities.

(i) Dr Gono stole Dr Kereke’s property number 23 Broadlands Road, Mount Pleasant Harare and sold it to Champion Insurance Company for US$500,000.00 cash and converted the cash to his own use.

This matter was reported to the Zimbabwe Republic Police under CR86/07/2012, and the civil suit side is under consideration at the High Court of Zimbabwe. Court records are there to prove this.

(j) Dr Gono bought real estate properties for his own use using State funds. Relevant proofs have been tendered.

(k) Several other cases ...

10.5 The real trouble on me started when I thought I was doing my country an honourable service and reported these matters to the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission, as well as to Gen H Bonyongwe of the President’s Department.

10.6 The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission completely ignored my report which they received over a year ago on October 8, 2012.

10.7 The same day, I sent a copy of the report to Gen H Bonyongwe which he duly received and stamped but nothing was done.

10.8 Instead, Rt Gen Bonyongwe started to deploy his team on me, almost hunting me down, culminating in the direct declarations by the Provincial Intelligence Officer for Masvingo, Ms Zindi and District Intelligence Officer for Bikita Ms Huni who both openly declared that “our superiors have said Kereke must be diffused”.

Chiefs in Bikita were addressed formally by the CIO structures in Masvingo and Bikita at a lodge at Nyika Growth Point and told not to work with Kereke.

As of now, I fear for my life to even visit and work in the Bikita West Constituency that I am lawfully representing in Parliament due to the threats of violence on me by institutions of the State and this for want of preservation of narrow personal agendas for certain individuals who see themselves as semi-gods immune to the Constitution and the just hand of the Almighty God.

Rt General Bonyongwe and his team are fighting me for reasons I do not know. General Bonyongwe is seeking to cripple me so that Dr Gono’s matters are not prosecuted as he fears this might compromise him.

I speak out here with absolutely no shred of fear because a free society like ours must be defined by free exchange of matters that affect the public, transparency, equality of all, and people holding positions of trust dutifully discharging their functions honourably and not to use lofty positions in government as vehicles for the advancement of narrow projects for colleagues in business, in politics or otherwise.

The CIO Director General must account for his inaction when I personally supplied him with tangible evidence and information that Dr Gono was seriously acting to undermine His Excellency The President’s and the country’s interests.

I wrote to Rt General Bonyongwe several times and he ignored me, only responding through passing back the same information back to Dr Gono and launching surreptitious and overt operations on me. Zimbabwe was not liberated for fellow countrymen and women to torment each other through abuse of the machinery of the State. Out of this, a lie was then crafted to say Kereke is selling sensitive State information. Are these criminal activities by these two individuals State secrets?

10.9 Now my business interests are being illegally attacked by the system through abuse of Zimra systems as if I committed any crimes.

10.10 I am now being hunted down by gangs totting AK 47 rifles as if I am a rebel posing danger to the nation yet what I stood for and still stand for are the interests of the country.

10.11 I am now being told you won’t live beyond 6 days, suggesting that to some people my funeral has become their immediate objective.

10.12 I am being told groups have been organised to arrest me so that poison can be injected to neutralise me. Attempts are thus, being made to use every unethical and unprofessional routes to find reason to arrest me so that in the isolated confines of cells I can be neutralised.

10.13 God has favoured me by according me this opportunity to document the true circumstances that explain why I have become such a desired object of attack and I have been able to send my facts to you Hon. Vice President, as well as to my family and those in relevant positions in Government for inter generational memory.

As mere mortals, we are born. We grow. We go through happy and bad moments in life.

Some die young. Some die much older. And on this, Jesus our Saviour died at 33 years old; I am fortunate to have reached 41 years of age; and so life is like that. My day shall come. The final days for those hunting and persecuting me today for sure shall come, probably even before mine for there is absolutely no one who has got the capacity to pre-set their own time here on earth. I have spoken. The rest is in God’s hands.

SEARCHING QUESTIONS...

14 Against the foregoing truths and reflections, the following key issues arise:

(a). Is Dr Gideon Gono immune to investigation and prosecution for his clear acts of fraud and treason against the State?

(b). Why is the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission not doing their Constitutionally defined mandate of investigating matters reported to them on Dr Gono?

(c). When the Director General H Bonyongwe acted to protect Dr Gono when I reported very sensitive matters affecting the State’s welfare, was he himself not acting in treasonous ways against the very mandate he ought to discharge given his very sensitive position in Government?

Whose interests is Director General Bonyongwe serving when he ignores evidence that Dr Gono is distributing Cabinet minutes to hostile countries, among several other breaches I reported to him?

I wrote several times to Gen Bonyongwe asking to meet him but instead his responses where surreptitious operations through his officials to directly try and cow me down.

Is this lawful? Should we live in fear in a free Zimbabwe because of an individual deployed in a specific time-bound position by Superiors?

(d). Zanu PF’s Manicaland Province has been regimented into forwarding Dr Gideon Gono’s name as a qualifying candidate for the Senatorial position even ahead of other deserving Party members long in the structures of Zimbabwe’s gallant revolutionary party who had gone through the mill of the primaries and the nomination court.

Is this not a clear example of corruption?

Does Dr Gono even qualify to hold any public office any more given his plunder of State resources for personal gain, and his treasonous acts? Is this activity by the party a manifestation of democracy or a sorry retrogressive mutation as a society to the cancer of oppressing the wishes of the very People that define our positions of authority in Government and the Party?

10.15 Hon Vice President, the real reason why I am being fought by the “superpowers” in this land is that they feel very restless to see me walk the face of the earth.

10.16 Dr Gono himself on November 1, 2013 sent Hon Deputy Minister of Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Hon F Chasi with the written message to the effect of telling Kereke “uchafa uri rombe” for breaking ranks with me. (Tell Kereke you will die a poor nonentity for breaking ranks with me). I chose to ignore this.

10.17 As a physically and financially weak natural persona, today I might be the soft and easy subject of abuse but the fair hand of the heavens always has a way to bring justice.

10.18 I am a law abiding citizen, a father of very young children, which children deserve to see their father’s hand holding them through the multi-dimensional journey of life.

Hon Vice President can I please be allowed to be a free Zimbabwean in our free country? Where I have transgressed as we all do, can the just processes at law be the guiding routes as opposed to the current terror, and kangaroo courts I am now subjected to.

10.19 I also want to end by letting you know that the reason why Hon Minister D Mavhaire has been fighting me so much not to stand as Member of Parliament for Bikita West is that he knows I am vocally opposing the fraud and lies that Bikita Minerals has done to the people of Zimbabwe.

The Hon. Minister is the board chairman and purports to hold shares there, blocking fellow Zimbabweans from benefitting out of the mineral wealth at this mine in line with the Indigenisation Laws of Zimbabwe.

In fact, by his own actions, Minister Mavhaire has also broken the law and we, the people of Bikita, including the Chiefs there, are being bulldozed and muzzled not to speak out against the blatant acts of corruption. Is this the Zimbabwe Mbuya Nehanda and Sekuru Kaguvi envisaged when they launched the First Chimurenga where those elected to positions of authority by the people turn against the very interests of the people for their own personal gain?

11. WELL-MEANING WORDS OF ADVICE

11.1 Hon Vice President, when we, the people you lead and govern feel that executive powers vested in our leaders have been turned into cannons of fire on the people, we feel very unsafe and constitutionally violated.

11.2 The wise discretion of a prudent leader lies in the consistent and persistent disposition of strictly following the letter and spirit of the law and always being slow to vindictive anger and never to act against the interests of one’s own people. Doing otherwise is politically ruinous to one’s ambitions.

11.3 I trust that Hon Vice President you will carefully look at things from an objective point of view and play the motherly role the Nation did entrust on you when you ascended to the venerated position you hold in the Government of the Republic of Zimbabwe.

Yours Sincerely,

DR MUNYARADZI KEREKE (MP)

CC: His Excellency The President of the Republic of Zimbabwe Minister of Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Prosecutor General Commissioner General, The Zimbabwe Republic Police Kereke Family Legal Counsel

Thank you Daily News. Kereke we have heard so many stories about you, using the same tactics you have documented here. So, its all about the pot calling the tea pot black. How many people did you give the RBZ money without accounting for it? You are playing with fire. Who can trust such a person?

james - 17 January 2014

This man is indeed very bitter bitterness breeds hatred and evil beware Kereke no matter how just or unjust your cause is to choke in your own bitterness. You are attacking everyone left right and center ZIMRA for assessing your company, the police for stopping you. The Doctor for declaring you mentally unstable.

john ndebele - 17 January 2014

why not investigate the issues raised. Why dismissing him before we here of the other side. Is the evidence false?

Kereke just leave the country your would be making the headlines verysoon, you are new in politics of zimbabwe,you will get employment with your education and you are still young. these people are ruthless they kill . pack your bags and leave zimbabwe while the sun shine

shakira - 17 January 2014

The unfortunate thing is that the allegations against Dr. Gono are now before the courts. Dr. Kereke is well aware of the implications of this. Why can't he wait for the Courts to handle it, I wonder. Another unfortunate issue that his allegations are now directed at several people. But we will be kin to hear the responses or defense of the like of the CIO Director-General

Why is Kereke writing about issues at the courts. is this not being contempt of the courts?

Dr. Kereke 1. You have put your case in the public domain so that we can get to know some of the things that were happening behind the scenes. 2. I would like to believe that you want our input in this whole saga. 3. I would want to start off by saying it would be more credible to present your case as is without giving us your opinion as to why things turned up the way they did. We want to make our own unbiased analysis of the rot at RBZ. 4. I can see that you are very unsettled and all you are trying to do is to save your life and live longer. 5. I don't understand why you are mixing politics with other issues. You are playing politics so play it. 6. If you are genuine, I would advise you to put the evidence you are talking about in the public domain so that we the general public can make an informed analysis. 7. You are starving us with information on how Gono misused the money (US$) during the trillions era. Please tell us more before we can take you seriously. 8. What you have brought to the public domain only serves to benefit you as an individual since you strongly believe that your life is in danger. 9. You sound to be a wealthy young man but you are mum on how you worked so hard to be where you are without Gono's input. 10. Kana wadya imbwa idya hono. Apa wakadya imbwa 5 so what makes brings about the phobia. Good luck Keri.

Well, the strongest letter to the tyrants ever read, provoking the vesture of authority and power in one's office yet he forgets that kings, in the bible, had the power to terminate life even of the very innocent. Kereke the letter you wrote VP was very strong. All your submissions appears to be very true and you did so objectively I can sense. I do not have any problem with that. Confirm Mnangwagwa ndiye ati unyore zitsamba iri aka kuudza kanyorero nenguva yokupublisher - 'when the president is kronikali ill.' in the absence of the unifier. Taura chokwadi sahwira... chamuri kurwira kutonga Zimbabwe ka apa.

Kereke Sahwira - 17 January 2014

Dont be quick to blame this guy, ignoring the substance of his case. He is frustrated by the system, much as we all are. He doesnt know what to do anymore, much as u and I dont know what to do anymore. Despite his own compromised position, morally, by virtue of the role he played in destroying Zimbabwe's economy, the facts that he is raising appear pertinent and should be investigated. And then if there is anyone who thinks Kereke has cases to answer let him/her bring the evidence to the courts. The fact that he has reported cases to the relevant authorities and no action has been taken, should mean something to u and me. Manje kana zvichidai pamuti munyoro (MP and Zanu member), ko kuzoti pamuti wakaoma (iwe neni). Ini ziii

What a touching narration of the sad situation the boy now finds himself in. But it was always going to gravitate to this point, and unfortunately as it stands more heinous experiences are observably coming the boy's way. But to get public sympathy as you desperately wish at the moment, i suggest you open up and tell the nation the whole truth about your own misdemeanor at the RBZ. Its not enough to talk about Gono's misdemeanors without exposing your own. Only then can the public embrace you and fight in your corner. Indeed there is power in acknowledging mistakes and apologising. Kereke understand that with the kind of information you are now disclosing you stand on the edge of becoming the people's hero, but only if you take that wild leap off the edge and disclose your misdemeanor at RBZ unreservedly. Many people in the country have gone through worse experiences at the hands of those who abuse state power, and today many of them suffer silently because they don't have the resources to secure recourse. Think of the vulnerability of those in rural areas who had their bodies mutilated, homes torched, and properties destroyed simply because they held different political views.

Disclose your misdemeanor and apologise - 17 January 2014

Good analysis Jabu.

James - 17 January 2014

WeDande. This is ironic. There is a rape charge reported against Kereke, which he is trying bitterly to block to go to court. Yet he is complaining about the same issues against the same system. What about the poor girl who was raped, and does not have connections and same platforms Kereke has? Is this not ironic? What is going on in the poor girl's mind. Let Kereke be cleared by the courts that he did not rape the poor girl.

James - 17 January 2014

How much was Gono earning while he was RBZ Chief , and where did he get all the money to buy all these properties, those are some of the questions we should be asking ourselves. Then the story from this guy could be true from all things being equal

Whistle blower who needs protection - 18 January 2014

This is politics and I thought Kereke new this before going into it. You thought it was going to be a walk in the park?? I don't trust ANY politician including Gono and Kereke. Our country is in tatters because of politicians and now you want us to sympathise with you! To HELL!

Musori - 18 January 2014

Where did u also get the money for your businesses Kereke (state of the art medical clinic, medical insurance, modern farm, houses, top-of the-range vehicles)? Who else besides the CIO Director and Gono got money from RBZ? Dont be selective in your "name and shame."

Trymore - 18 January 2014

Kereke for your allegations to have substance, why are you note citing the likes of the RBZ board and these on acting capacity, Charity, because they were also there when you were doing all this rot. 2 you are now complaining years after you left the RBZ coz you are now in politics, why didnt you complain or leave the institution let alone informing the VP by then. 3 Complaining about Gono not being investigated is unfair coz your rape case hasnt been investigated despite the likes of Gumbura being investigated while they are in cells. For all fellow Zimboz, rape charges are investigated while the suspect is in cells, as for yours am failing to understand it. Ayaaaz Zikomo
