Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission owes Zimra $5 million in tax due to corrupt employees

A 2016 report tabled by Emmerson Mnangagwa in the National Assembly this week showed that the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (Zacc) now owes the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) $5 million after corrupt staff members converted company cars to their personal use.

Although Zacc is supposed to uproot corruption, the constitutional body admitted in its report that its officers had engaged in corruption. Part of the report reads:

Zacc has been indebted to Zimra to the tune of $5 million in tax arrears mainly due to corrupt practices. The commission established that the largest chunk of these arrears had accrued from vehicles bought by the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ), which were converted to personal use as retention vehicles for individual staff members who did not qualify at all for such vehicles, which were supposed to be Zacc pool vehicles.

The vehicles were reportedly registered using staff members’ personal names and sold in violation of standing policy, rules and procedures. The report however failed to name the corrupt individuals in question. The report also said four senior managers at Zacc had also acquired a Zacc property at Number 872 Betterment Close, Mount Pleasant, in the name of their own private company.
