Owen Ncube Faces Allegations Of Attempting To Insert A Government Operative Within Econet Ranks
Former CIO Head and Minister Owen Mudha Ncube is facing charges of trying to place a “state agent” within Econet Wireless.
Political analyst Freeman Chari suggests the move aims to grant the government access to private information through this individual.
Chari raises concerns about the potential misuse of personal data, emphasizing the strategic placement of such individuals.
The issue gained attention after a recommendation letter, signed by Ncube, circulated online, attempting to advocate for the employment of Trevor Chidende at Econet Wireless
This incident has sparked public discussions on whether a minister can influence hiring decisions at a major telecom company.
