ZACC Engages Its American, European And South African Counterparts Over Wealth Hidden Abroad

ZACC Engages Its American, European And South African Counterparts Over Wealth Hidden Abroad

The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC), with assistance from its American, South African, and European counterparts, is now targeting corruptly acquired properties and wealth hidden outside the country.

ZACC commissioner Kuviwa Murapa said they enlisted legal services in the above-mentioned territories to repossess the properties, without naming targeted individuals, according to NewZimbabwe.com.

Murapa was speaking at an ongoing workshop on progress made in the fight against corruption, facilitated by parliament and funded by the African Parliamentarians’ Network Against Corruption (APNAC). Said Murapa:

“The commission has now adopted a strategy that for each criminal inquiry there should be a parallel asset inquiry as well,” said Murapa.

In the countries neighbouring and abroad, the commission has enlisted mutual legal assistance from those jurisdictions to recover assets originating from this country that are parked in those jurisdictions, financial houses, in land, buildings and equipment.

It is through in the public domain that through these efforts, assets worth R14 million have been accounted for in South Africa, but that is not all.

We continue to investigate and as we do, we are now close to finalising assets of former high ranking civil servants who parked Zimbabwean assets in South Africa.

Murapa added that ZACC had identified a number of private assets as well whose source of investment income cannot be sufficiently explained, nor are there any tax declarations on these investments either with ZINARA or tax authorities in those countries. He added:

In this regard SARS, and other tax authorities in America and Europe are assisting ZACC in identifying and possible forfeiture of those assets.

Exiled former cabinet ministers and ZANU PF top officials, Saviour Kasukuwere, Walter Mzembi, Patrick Zhuwao, Godfrey Gandawa, Professor Jonathan Moyo, and former police chief Augustine Chihuri reportedly own massive tracts of land, buildings, high end vehicles and offshore accounts accumulated under late President Robert Mugabe.

To date US$56 million worth of properties has been repossessed by the state.

Zimbabwe is reportedly losing over US$2 billion through corruption each year.

ZAAC like ZEC is not an independent entity hence cannot operate effectively.
We have situations locally like the looting of NSSA, but the known perpetrator, Prisca Mupfumira is walking scot free until kingdom come.
The Manases are said to be currently doing damage to the fund with impunity and yet pensioners are suffering due to those thefts being conducted on grand scale.
So far what has been recovered locally to now warrant to shift abroad?
Talk shop.

One would think that property can only be recovered after the accused has been arrested and found guilty in the courts of law.
We have yet to see such evidence.

I personally don't have confidence with the ZACC recovery business because they do not make public names of people from whom they have recovered locally. In foreign lands it is understandable that they do not make public until time is conducjve to name them. Those amongst us whose I'll gotten property has been repossessed must be named and shamed.

It is clear that this Gvt is fighting corruption by all means at it's disposal. I would not mind to vote for it to give it another 5 year mandate and and I urge all of you to do the same and return all the wealth that was stolen left right and center.
