8 Karoi Council Officials Arrested For Corruptly Allocating Themselves Properties

Eight Karoi Town Council officials, including the chairperson, five councillors and two employees, have been arrested for corruptly allocating themselves properties.

They allegedly allocated themselves residential and commercial stands without following procedures and awarded each other unapproved travelling and subsistence (T&S) allowances.

Town secretary, Wellington Mutikani, on suspension over other allegations, was back in court facing four counts of corruptly allocating himself four residential stands.

He is also accused of awarding himself a tender between 2015 and 2021.

Council chairperson, councillor Abel Matsika, is also facing allegations of unlawfully allocating himself a residential stand.

Five other Karoi councillors, Stewart Jena, Nicholas Murwira, Rangarirai Hungwe, Thomas Mbiri and Kenson Kamuponda were also arrested by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZAAC) on allegations of awarding themselves unapproved T&S allowances.

The other accused, Hastings Makunda, an administration officer, also faces allegations of unlawfully allocating himself a residential stand.

All the accused appeared at Karoi Magistrates Court Thursday and Friday and were released on bail with varying conditions each.

I WAS BORN IN KAROI DISTRICT HOSPITAL IN 1950 AND HAVE EVER LIVED IN AND OUT OF KAROI. I AM MUCH INTERESTED WITH THE DEVELOPMENTS WHICH OCCUR IN KAROI.

I WANT TO THANK ZIMBABWE ANTI- CORRUPTION COMMISSION FOR NIPPING CORRUPTION IN THE BUDD. CORRUPTION STAMPEDE DEVELOPMENT. IT SHOULD NEVER EVER ALLOWED TO FLOURISH. IT IS CANCEROUS.

KAROI IS ONE OF THE FASTEST GROWING TOWNS IN MASHONALAND WEST [MASH BEST]. THREE YEARS AGO THERE WAS ALMOST NOTHING MEANINGFUL IN KAROI. KAROI IS AN AGRICULTURAL HUB. HURUNGWE FARMERS ARE HARDWORKING.

THEY GROW TOBACCO, MAIZE AND COTTON FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES. AS A RESULT FIRST INVESTORS TO BE LURED WERE TOBACCO AUCTIONEERS. AS I SPEAK TODAY THERE ARE FIVE TOBACCO AUCTION FLOORS, FIVE RESTAURANTS AND THREE SUPERMARKETS, OK, TM AND SPAR.

BANKS HAD CLOSED, BUT BECAUSE THERE IS MONEY CIRCULATING, THEY ARE COMING BACK. THESE DEVELOPMENTS COULD NOT HAVE COME IF CORRUPTION WAS RAMPANT.

IT IS NOW FOR ZR POLICE TO INVESTIGATE THOROUGHLY TO MAKE SURE THOSE WHO HAVE ARRESTED ARE ANSWERABLE TO THEIR CRIMES IN COURT.

INI NDINI, IWE NDIWE !!!!!

YOURS SINCERELY
