Authorities in Zimbabwe are keen to interview Uebert Angel Mudzanire, a business front for dictator Robert Mugabe’s wife Grace, who has allegedly fled to the United States amid tax fraud investigations.
Sources within Zimbabwe’s revenue service confirmed that the multimillionaire Spirit Embassy church founder and Miracle satellite TV owner had been targetted after he claimed to have amassed a personal fortune of $60 million and bought a $2 million Lamborghini recently.
Human rights activists are also calling for Angel’s expulsion from the U.S. for doing business on behalf of the Mugabes, in violation of a blacklist on the despot by Washington. Angel is also accused of money laundering and racketeering on behalf of the Mugabes, who have stashed billions in foreign banks after looting the state treasury in Zimbabwe.
The U.S. Forbes financial magazine reported that Angel had made his millions by buying up cheap properties in America and the UK and developing them. Forbes did not say where he got the initial capital, leading Zimbabweans to speculate that the Mugabes bankrolled him from the start.
Angel was rebuked by the former governor of the central Reserve Bank, Gideon Gono, after he claimed he could make money and diamonds appear miraculously in the wallets of his followers.
