Govt To Confiscate “Illegally Acquired Wealth” From Former Ministers Convicted Of Corruption

The Ministry of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs has said that it intends to conclude at least 20 high profile corruption cases as part of its 100-day work plan. This will result in the “forfeiture of illegally acquired wealth on conviction of economic and corruption cases.”

Thes comes after a number of former ministers have been arrested by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission on various charges of corruption and criminal abuse of office. Some of the ministers who have been arrested include:

  • Ignatius Chombo
  • Walter Mzembi
  • Walter Chidhakwa
  • Makhosini Hlongwane
  • Joseph Made
  • Samuel Undenge
  • Jason Machaya

The Mnangagwa administration has promised that there will be no “sacred cows” when it comes to fighting corruption, although it is yet to make good on its promise by arresting Ministers aligned to Mnangagwa’s own Lacoste Faction.
