Johannesburg - SA-based businessman Frank Buyanga, who had recently been accused of graft involving land deals in Zimbabwe, is in the clear after his accuser ZANU-PF Secretary for Youth League Lewis Matutu on Friday admitted that he did not have any evidence to back up the allegations.
Buyanga had been fingered in a much publicised land graft swoop which sucked in top politicians and business people in Zimbabwe.
Matters came to a head after President Emmerson Mnangagwa declared in July that he had given the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission “new teeth”.
The influential ruling ZANU-PF youth league then went on to release a list of prominent business people, included the Johannesburg-based Buyanga demanding that they be arrested on suspicion of corrupt land acquisition.
For the past three weeks, the flamboyant business has denied any involvement in tainted land deals and instead challenged Matutu to provide proof of any wrongdoing on his part.
