Former Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) commissioner-general Gershem Pasi who resigned from his post earlier on this week is reported to have sought an exit package and immunity from prosecution before resigning. Pasi had been under suspension for almost a year and was facing 45 counts of misconduct. The board, however, refused to grant him an exit package, while also dismissing his plea for immunity from prosecution.
In his resignation letter Pasi wrote:
My employer has without just or lawful cause preferred unfounded charges against me. The charges ring hollow, being based as they are, upon an incompetent audit report prepared by auditors who abdicated their most basic functions and responsibilities. I wish to reiterate and make it abundantly clear that I have committed no misconduct, either of nature alleged or at all.
