Zimbabwean former Minister for youth & Gender Equality who is also a 
businessman and politician in the Zimbabwean political arena. My husband was 

the famous politician who stood firmly against President Mugabe’s idea of 

continuos fight in Democratic Republic of Congo and my  husband 
also stood against seizure of white firms and the distribution of it to the 

blacks without compensation to the owners. Because of my husband 
incerity he was killed on the 14th April 2001 by a planned motor accident 

along Mashonaland in Western Mashona province of Zimbabwe, the planners of the 

accident are said to be dissidents soldiers occurred suspected to have the 

backing of the government and president Mugabe. 

Sir, when this accident occurred my husband  did not die on the spot rather he 

was rushed to Harare hospital by unknown soldiers and my husband  managed to 

sneak a written message to us, explaining his condition concerning the fund he 
deposited in oversees in my name which amount US$32.5M {Thirty Two Million

bid.Regarding the unfortunate incident, he instructed me to leave the 
country for safety and i relocated to Australia immediately for my safety.He

help to keep the fund  safely. Be informed that the original documents of 

deposit are kept intact with our family lawyer and shall be given to you with 
the particulars of the bank for confirmation.

Based on the country Law, which bears asylum eeker/refugee like us not to 

operate a
bank account that exceed US$2000 and the fear of money now raising eyebrow 

here in
zimbabwean. I decided to write you with the notion seeking your kind 

assistance  to help me and claim the fund on my behalf from the bank oversees  

as the beneficiary and help lodge the funds in your nominated bank account for 

safety purpose.

I planned to invest the rest of the money in your country under your guidance 

on a lucrative business. If you are willing to help me try as much as possible 

to reach me with this OR to

in mind that our lives depend on this fund 
and we do hope that this money will be safe when finally transferred into your
