Mnangagwa's Son, Top Bodyguard at the Centre of PPE Scandal

President Emmerson Mnangagwa's son, Collins, is embroiled in a U.S.$1 million personal protective equipment dispute while the president's top bodyguard, Valdano Brown, won lucrative contracts to supply COVID-19 equipment to the ministry of health without going through a competitive bidding process. Mnangagwa has denied any links with a company said to have been contracted to supply the government with grossly inflated COVID-19 personal protective equipment.
