myself. I am Gideon Nkomo. A Citizen of Zimbabwe, but I am contacting you from Accra Ghana where I 
am now seeking political asylum. I got your contact from a business Directory in Accra Ghana 
chambers of commerce and industry information exchange 
online on scientist.
I am the son of Mr. Samuel Nkomo, a wealthy farmer and senior politician with the opposition 
political party in my country, Movement for Democratic Change (MDC). Our wicked President Robert 
Mugabe murdered my father, before I ran away from my country because I have become his next target 
to eliminate.My father was a fighter for Justice and a moving force in The MDC, a party wanting to 
end the several years of brutal Dictatorship government of President Robert Mugabe. You will read 
more stories about President Mugabe's brutal acts by visiting this web site:
My father was accused of assisting the White farmers in fighting the government. Few weeks after 
his arrest, he was reported dead. The government claimed he died of heart attack and his body was 
never seen for proper autopsy, they buried him in the government cemetery. My father's associate 
Mr. Martin Olds a White farmer from Britain assisted me in fighting my father's death through the 
Court and media.The Government saw us as a big threat to them and decided to eliminate us. Mr. Olds 
was attacked and murdered in his House, but fortunately, before they came looking for me, I 
received the news and I left the country through the border to Accra Ghana to save my life here in

treasures and precious valuables and could not bank them because of the situation in my Country.The 
government seized my fatherís farms and banks account in my country after his arrest and Murder. He 
told me everything concerning the funds while he was still in detention. This is why I need your 
assistance in securing the funds there in your Country, so that I can arrange on how to come over 
to your country for the investment of the fund, I am willing to offer you 30% of the US$20.5 
Million For your assistance to provide an account where the funds will be transferred into, and the
