THE Zimbabwe Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) has been forced to issue a statement dismissing as false reports it gave US$250 000 cash to President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s daughter, Farai Mlotshwa.

On Friday, former Zanu PF Politburo member and Cabinet Minister, Jonathan Moyo Twitted that Farai Mlotshwa (nee Mnangagwa) was given US$250 00 cash by the “Dealers” Section of the RBZ’s Treasury Division.

“On 19 February 2020, #RBZ was ordered to pay her USD 5m in tranches of USD 1m over five weeks. There’re no invoices for the transactions! #ForexCartel,” wrote Moyo.

However, the RBZ was forced to issue a statement denying the claims, which has already gone viral on social media platforms.

“Fake News on USD250 000 Cash. The Reserve Bank would like to dismiss the article circulating on social media on USD250 000 as fake news. The Reserve Bank only deals directly with Banks and Bureaux de Change,” the Central Bank said.
