Mugabe Puts Wife Grace’s Lover Gono Under Investigation

President Robert Mugabe has ordered an official inquiry into how former Reserve Bank governor Gideon Gono, his wife grace’s reported lover, handled the country’s chaotic transition from the worthless Zimdollar to a multi-currency regime in 2009.
Mugabe told parliament on Tuesday that the changeover had prejudiced pensioners and insurance policy holders.
However, suspicions about the dictator’s motives for the probe have arisen after he previously blocked efforts by the MDC to fire Gono for corruption and mismanagement.
Mugabe only turned against Gono in 2010 after the London Times reported that the charismatic banker had sex with his wife during steamy “business meetings” at her Mazowe farm and in South African hotels.
The investigation is the latest blow for Gono after Mugabe refused to extend his RBZ contract and blocked the banker’s efforts to become senator. Some reports claimed Gono had presidential ambitions.
