The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (Zacc) is reported to be investigating former Minister of Finance, Tendai Biti over a transaction which took place during the Government of National Unity (GNU) era. This comes after the National Social Security Authority (Nssa) alleged that Biti had unprocedurally ordered the social authority to release $30 million to Renaissance Bank between 2009 and 2013. Rennaisance is now defunct.
Zacc Commissioner (investigations) Goodson Nguni told State media,
There is suspicion that some of the money which was meant for office furniture was diverted to MDC coffers. Apart from that, other allegations involve abuse of funds which were borrowed from international financiers and trapped in a closed bank. Some MDC officials dipped their hands in the till.
Therefore, we are keen on interviewing Mr Biti over some of the transactions made during his time as Minister of Finance. We are appealing to Mr Biti to visit our offices to answer questions related to the transactions which involve millions of dollars of Government money.
