The Christopher Mutsvangwa-led executive of the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans’ Association (ZNLWVA) has demanded a forensic audit of the War Veterans ministry, amid claims of massive looting of school fees for former fighters’ children.
Speaking to NewsDay, ZNLWVA spokesperson Douglas Mahiya said,
We actually think an audit of the ministry is in order. There has been systematic looting of money due to war veterans and the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission should be allowed to look into the ministry’s books. Millions should be missing.
Contacted for comment over the allegations, War Veterans’ ministry permanent secretary, Walter Tapfumaneyi, said,
We have been talking to them and nothing has been imposed. Especially Mahiya, but they are entitled to their opinion, so let them do what they want.
