I am Mr James Nkonor Benson Jnr son of the comrade Mr. James Benson, the
Zimbabwean former Minister for Youth & Gender Equality who is also a
businessman and politician, in the Zimbabwean politics. My father was the
famous politician who stood firm against President Mugabe’s idea of
continuous fight in the Democratic Republic of Congo and my father also
stood against the seizure of white owned farms and the distribution of it
to the blacks without compensation on to the white owners. Because of my
Father's sincerity he was killed by a planned motor accident from
dissident soldiers suspected to have the backing of the Government and
Current President Mugabe himself.

that the only officer who knows about it is Dr. Philip Nosipo who is the
head foreign operation, treasury and international Remittance Department
of the said Bank.

He also intimated us of some other vital documents that were meant for his
Political campaign in the next election. My father instructed me to take
my Mother and leave Zimbabwe immediately for our safety, which we have
successfully done and now we are in South Africa were the money is
