DC: Manase was vice-chairman in the Chingoka board and to that extent shares responsibility for the decisions it made. However, during my time as minister I always found Manase a constructive force who tried to persuade the Chingoka board to act responsibly.
MS: Manase was once your subordinate at Legal Resources Foundation, could this be the reason why you have gone all out to glorify him on social media? Manase was outvoted for the ZC chairmanship, why don't you seem to respect that and if he had done such a wonderful job during his time as interim chairman how come he could not even get onto the ZC board?
DC: Manase was never my subordinate in the LRF. He was director of the Harare Legal Projects Centre when I was director of the Bulawayo Legal Projects Centre. He later became national director of the mother body the Legal Resources Foundation. I have no idea how Manase lost the vote. From an objective outsiders position it seemed to me that he had done a good job in turning Zimbabwe Cricket around so I was surprised that he lost.
...
MS: Is there any truth in that Manase took orders from you when he took over as ZC interim chairman?
...
MS: The question that still remains unanswered is in what capacity did you send that email to Wilson Manase, were you a consultant for Manase?
DC: No I was not a consultant and did not write in any formal capacity. Manase and I have been friends and colleagues for some 30 years and he wrote asking for my opinion. If you look at the e-mail published in The Herald you will see that I was responding to his request.
MS: Does it mean any ordinary Zimbabwean can write to the chairman of the ZC board and have their views actually implemented?
DC: If any person has the 30 year friendship I had I suppose so. But what is not being stated is that Manase only implemented some of my suggestions - for example he disregarded my views regarding Makoni?
MS: Did you play a part in the tour to Pakistan as well where Manase defied the Sports and Recreation Commission and Government in embarking on such a risky tour to a civil war ravaged country?
DC: No I had no role of any sort in that decision although I supported the tour.
MS: You championed the #Bringackwilsonmanase to #Zimbabwe #cricket campaign on social media yet Manase lost an election to Tavengwa Mukuhlani so how are you going to bring back Manase to cricket and through which means?
DC: I am a citizen and it is my right to use whatever influence I have to persuade the cricketing public to support my views.
MS: If Manase was indeed the man for the job why did he lose to Mukuhlani, Manase was within while Mukuhlani was outside the ZC structures yet he lost.
DC: I have no idea but am aware that Manase was trying to deal with cricket's murky past and powerful forces were activated to make sure he was stopped in his tracks.
MS: How come you are not as vocal on other sports which are not doing well in Zimbabwe, you are only vocal about cricket yet other sports codes are going down in this country?
DC: Cricket has always been a particular passion of mine - the only other sport I have a similar interest in is golf.
MS: The looting story that was published on ZC you have not acknowledged that it was for December 2014 when Wilson Manase was ZC interim chairman?
DC: I have always acknowledged that Manase was vice-chairman when the ICC loan scandal took place but have seen no evidence that he was personally involved.

I have some questions based on your recent posts on social network sites Facebook and Twitter where you seem to be praising former Zimbabwe Cricket chairman Wilson Manase and attacking the current board led by Tavengwa Mukuhlani. You have even gone to the extent of accusing the Mukuhlani executive of engaging in racial purge aimed at removing white people from the game. Because of this, I have some questions that I would like to put across to you and I would be most grateful if you could take your time to respond to them. My deadline for this story is Thursday at 17:00, I would be glad if you respond before then.
1) Wilson Manase was part of the ZC board that was led by Peter Chingoka and was vice chairman from 2011 until he took over as interim chairman from Chingoka in July last year, how can then be that you are suggesting that Manase can be disassociated from the decisions made by the previous ZC boards which he was part of? MANASE WAS VICE CHAIRMAN IN THE CHINGOKA BOARD AND TO THAT EXTENT SHARES RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE DECISIONS IT MADE. HOWEVER DURING MY TIME AS MINISTER I ALWAYS FOUND MANASE A CONSTRUCTIVE FORCE WHO TRIED TO PERSUADE THE CHINGOKA BOARD TO ACT RESPONSIBLY.
2) Was Manase once your subordinate at Legal Resources Foundation, could this be the reason why you have gone all out to glorify him on social media? As someone who believes in democracy, Manase was outvoted for the ZC chairmanship, why dont you seem to respect that and if he had done such a wonderful job during his time as interim chairman how come he could not even get onto the ZC board? MANASE WAS NEVER MY SUBORDINATE IN THE LRF. HE WAS DIRECTOR OF THE HARARE LEGAL PROJECTS CENTRE WHEN I WAS DIRECTOR OF THE BULAWAYO LEGAL PROJECTS CENTRE. HE LATER BECAME NATIONAL DIRECTOR OF THE MOTHER BODY THE LEGAL RESOURCES FOUNDATION. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW MANASE LOST THE VOTE. FROM AN OUTSIDERS POSITION IT SEEMED TO ME THAT HE HAD DONE A GOOD JOB IN TURNING ZIMBABWE CRICKET AROUND SO I WAS SURPRISED THAT HE LOST. I AM AFRAID THAT THE NEW ZIMBABWE CRICKET CONSTITUTION CAN HARDLY BE VIEWED AS THE EPITOME OF ‘DEMOCRACY’. EVER SINCE IT WAS CHANGED BY THE CHINGOKA’S BOARD IT HAS GENERALLY PREVENTED PEOPLE WHO ENJOY THE SUPPORT OF THE PLAYERS AND THE CRICKETING PUBLIC FROM SECURING HIGH OFFICE. THE REALITY IS THAT CRICKET IN ZIMBABWE IS NOW CONTROLLED BY A SMALL HARARE BASED CLIQUE WHO DO NOT HAVE THE NATIONAL INTERESTS OF THE GAME AT HEART. THE FACT THAT BULAWAYO HAS NOT HOSTED A TEST PLAYING NATION FOR WELL OVER A YEAR IS ADEQUATE TESTIMONY OF THAT FACT.
3) Is there any truth in that Manase took orders from you when he took over as ZC interim chairman, did you ever send him a lengthy email with a four point plan soon after he took over from Chingoka, the action plan starting with the sacking of Stephen Mangongo as national team coach just before the World Cup?THERE IS NO TRUTH IN THAT ALLEGATION. BEING FRIENDS WE EXCHANGED E MAILS BUT HE IS HIS OWN MAN AND AT NO TIME DID I EVER GIVE ORDERS, NOR DID HE EVER ACT ON ANY OTHER BASIS THAN WHAT HE VIEWED AS BEST FOR CRICKET.
...
Is that a sign of good leadership from Manase? ONCE AGAIN YOU ALONE ARE PRIVY TO THESE ALLEGATIONS MADE PRESUMABLY BY THE ZC BOARD.
...
In one of his instructive emails to Manase, he suggested that Taibu be brought in as a selector so that the race card would not be played and that Manase would not appear to be an Uncle Tom.
Manase was on the ZC board since 2006. He became vice-chairman in 2011 and interim chairman in July 2014. How is it that all of a sudden Manase was never part of the decision-making process for all this time he was on the ZC board? How does he, all of a sudden, become dissociated with all the decisions of the previous boards?
...
Manase worked as Coltart’s subordinate at Legal Resources Foundation and as his protégé he can only believe in him and no one else.
...
If this report is true it is an absolute travesty and I am afraid further evidence of a not-so-subtle racist agenda by the new Zimbabwe Cricket Board which took over from Wilson Manase a few months ago, which is seemingly determined to rid cricket of every last Zimbabwean white from the set up.

On Monday, ZC chairman Wilson Manase responded to article.
"Given that the document was addressed and delivered to me and that ZC has since set up a committee of enquiry into the whole matter, it is disturbing that the document has now been leaked to the media," said Manase.
...
Manase said the leaking of the article could have far-reaching implications as it paints a negative picture of ZC to its supporters, to the sponsors, the media, government, and fellow ICC members.
"The truth is that ZC does not employ or contract anyone on the grounds of race, but on the basis of talent and expertise," he said.

As a result of downgrading of accounts, non performing loans as a percentage of total loan book worsened from 29 percent in 2012 to 43 percent in 2013," said Metbank chairman Wilson Manase in a statement accompanying the financials.
...
Manase said the bank will this year seek to raise $50 million through a rights issue to meet the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe minimum capital requirements of $100 million.
He said Metbank will source an additional $50 million long term lines of credit and will dispose of the bank's non-core assets to increase capital levels. The bank will this year launch mortgage finance as a new line of business in the second half of the year, Manase said.
