Mugabe's minister wanted in Kenya over USD6M theft

Professor Moyo was married to a Kenyan and he reportedly worked in Nairobi for many years.

Mr. Moyo who is on the run is being actively sought by Kenyan authorities 'wanted over $6m fraud’ he is alleged to have committed in 2000.

“In 2001, Mr Moyo was implicated in a corruption scandal involving about $6 million (Sh619.9 million) while he was the programme director in Nairobi for the American-based charity organisation, Ford Foundation. The money was meant for a Nairobi-based NGO, the Series on Alternative Research in East Africa Trust, which was founded by political scientist Mutahi Ngunyi,” a local Kenyan daily quoted a top security official who declined to be named.

“An audit report carried out in 2000 revealed that Mr Moyo used the money for unclear purposes”

The anonymous security official said Mr Moyo fled the country before the case was concluded and therefore, remains a wanted man in Kenya.

He went into hiding soon after the Zimbabwe Defence Forces launched what they termed Operation Restore Legacy to deal with a cabal of criminals around then President Robert Mugabe in mid-November last year.

Due to his links to Kenya, there have been widened speculations in the media that he is in Kenya, claims Kenyan authorities have denied.

Senior Kenyan government officials — who include government spokesman Mr Eric Kiraithe, the Interior ministry spokesman, Mr Mwenda Njoka and Mr Edwin Limo, the spokesman for the Foreign Affairs ministry — have refuted media suggestions that Prof Moyo was hiding in the country.

The fugitive professor has been using his Twitter handle to attack the new administration in Harare also denied he was in Kenya.
