The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZAAC) has declared that former Premier Service Medical Aid Society (PSMAS) group chief executive Dr Cuthbert Dube and his board have no case to answer and has cleared them of all charges. Dube was facing charges of abuse of board fees, allowances, fraud, theft and use of PSMAS funds for ZIFA-related activities.
In a letter to the PSMAS board, ZACC acting secretary Mr Silas Pondo said:
Investigations were carried out by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission following a report you made.
Please be advised that investigations failed to link the suspects to the commission of the offence. Thank you for showing confidence in our organisation.
…He was alleged to have unlawfully transferred a house in Glen Lorne, Harare, into his name when the said property was bought using PSMAS money,
“Investigations show that it was part of his employment contract that he would be given a house. Again this charge cannot stand.”
…It has been found that there are documents showing that his contract of employment entitled him to access personal loans twelve times his monthly salary. His salary was $236 000 per month and he could access a loan 12 times that figure.
In this respect there was no law or rule violated.
