The MDC Alliance has applauded works of a whistle blower who alerted police at RGM Airport that Henrietta Rushwaya was going to be smuggling out over 6kgs of gold to Dubai.
The opposition party believes that the whistle blower is a member of a rival ZANU PF faction.
Police said the recovered gold would be taken for assay to determine quantity and value after which it would be sent to Fidelity Printers and Refiners for safekeeping.
A kilogramme of gold was yesterday fetching just above US$62 000 on the international market, meaning the contraband seized from Rushwaya was worth around US$372 000.
She is expected in court today. Source: Zmetro
