Seasoned Zimbabwean journalist Geoffrey Nyarota’s new book, titled The Honourable Minister is now out.
The book is an anatomy of endemic corruption in the country.
Nyarota was The Chronicle editor during the Willowgate Scandal in 1988 in which senior govt officials bought cheap cars and resold them at a profit.
It was the Chronicle under the editorship of Nyarota that unearthed the scandal.
One of the major investigative stories in the history of the media in Zimbabwe the scandal came to the attention of Nyarota in October 1989 when a member of parliament Obert Mpofu surrendered a check he had accidentally received from Willowvale Motor Industries to the Chronicle for investigations.
The investigation unearthed that the check which was signed by the then Industry minister Callistus Ndlovu was meant for one Alfred Mpofu.
This triggered further investigations that implicated four top government officials.
