HARARE(ZimEye)-FIRED Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe chief advisor Munyaradzi Kereke, who was a close Gideon Gono ally, has made sensational claims that he did academic work for the RBZ chief’s doctoral degree before he threatened to have Gono stripped of his PhD.
In a strong worded letter released to the Press, Kereke made sensational claims of how Gono looted over $6.5 million and gold from the RBZ at a time when Zimbabweans were reeling from extreme poverty.
Kereke said he was fired by Gono from the RBZ because he knew about President Robert Mugabe’s personal banker’s shenanigans.
The controversial Harare businessman said he literally felt worse than sodomised by Gono who forced him to write assignments and online examinations for the RBZ boss’ PhD.
Kereke ranted: “Mr Gideon Gono do you forget you yet again abused your authority by forcing me to literally do all the academic work on your behalf for the entire PhD studies upon which you were “conferred” the Doctoral Degree you now flaunt to the public as your own? Do you forget you forced me to do all for you, right from registration, to doing all assignments, to doing all the online exams right up to the final thesis, so I could keep my job at the RBZ?
“On this Mr Gono please publicly retract your insults to me otherwise I will cause the relevant university to withdraw the doctoral degree they conferred on you, as you never ever wrote a sentence to earn it.
“You could never have secured a quarter of the PhD requirements using your very limited and blunt academic mental amplitude even in 5 decades. Please take this seriously as I will sue you for the abuse you affected on me. I literally feel worse than sodomized by what you did to me. This was absolute theft of my intellectual property under duress.”
Kereke warned Gono that if he fails to respond to his letter he will institute legal action to protect himself against the banker’s shameless determination to ruin his young life.
He further claimed that Gono also used RBZ funds to buy two houses as “gift” for an unnamed Deputy Minister.
Gono raided foreign currency accounts belonging to companies and individuals’ to fund quasi-fiscal activities and finance Mugabe’s reign of terror in 2008. A number of RBZ assets have been auctioned by creditors to recover their money.
Gono could be reached for comment Thursday.(Zimbabwe, ZimEye)
