After the death of my father, my mother and I with my younger brother decided to move out of Zimbabwe for the safety of our lives. We took along with us the money my father kept in the safe in my mother’s house, which amounted to the sum of US$12.7Million to the Republic of South Africa.
We have deposited it as personal valuable in a private Security Company here in South Africa where we have sought political asylum.
