Employees fired on suspicion of corruption as Zimra intensifies lifestyle audit

The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority has intensified lifestyle audit of its staff with the authority looking at bank accounts, mobile money transfers and the deeds office to establish properties registered in its employees’ names or their families.

Employees then have to justify any suspicious bank deposits, mobile money transfer transactions and the source of funds for properties in their names, spouse or children’s names.  A large number of employees were fired on suspicion of engaging in corruption after they failed to justify their transactions or the source of income. In an emailed response to The Herald, Zimra board secretary and director for Legal and Corporate Services, Ms Florence Jambwa, confirmed the lifestyle audit saying it was meant to curb graft within the authority.

The revenue collector has roped in the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe to compel financial institutions to avail bank statements of a number of employees as part of the audit.
