HARARE – Minister of Women’s Affairs, Community, Small and Medium Enterprises Development, Monica Mutsvangwa, has vehemently denied the charges of illegal foreign currency trading against her son, Neville, calling them fabricated and politically motivated.

Neville was arrested at his Harare home by detectives from the CID commercial crimes unit on allegations of contravening the Exchange Control Act by illegally trading in foreign currency.

The arrest came after a WhatsApp post by Neville, which some interpreted as an advertisement for illegal currency trading.In an audio recording circulating on social media, Minister Mutsvangwa alleged that the charges were “cooked up” and that her son was innocent.

She questioned the timing of the arrest, which coincided with her absence from the country.

This is not Neville’s first brush with the law. He has faced previous arrests for sexual offences, though he was never convicted.

In 2019, police raided his office, finding US$200,000, which later went missing.

Four detectives were arrested for the theft.

Recently, Neville was also accused of undermining government policy by selling Starlink units in Zimbabwe, despite a POTRAZ ban.

Minister Mutsvangwa’s allegations of political victimisation have sparked a heated debate, with many questioning the motivations behind her son’s arrest.
