Embattled Zimbabwe business tycoon Wicknell Chivayo has fled to the United Kingdom amid police and Zimra investigations into his financial affairs.
Chivayo confirmed that he was in London but said he was taking a vacation. He dismissed the charges against him as the work of his haters. He admitted that he had gone to prison in 2002 over a foreign currency transaction that “went wrong” and he was accused of money laundering. He said there was nothing secret about his arrest and he had told president Robert Mugabe about spending time in jail.
Chivayo became the subject of frenzied speculation after dishing out money to the national soccer team but failing to honour a pledge to pay coach Kallisto Pasuwa’s $7 000 monthly salary. He says he will not apologize for making money and splashing it around.
