$360 000 Meant To Build Tsholotsho Stadium Goes “Missing”

Tsholotsho Rural District Council (RDC) is setting up a Commission of Inquiry to look into possible embezzlement of hundreds of thousands of dollars. The commission of inquiry will investigate how $360 000 that was meant for the construction of Tsholotsho Stadium went missing.

There was speculation the council chief executive officer Mr Themba Moyo would be suspended over the issue. The $360 000 was raised through the sale of 60 elephants, each going for $18 000, which were in 2013 donated by the Ministry of Environment, Water and Climate Change, then under Saviour Kasukuwere. Only 20 elephants were sold and the money is allegedly missing from council coffers.

The Chronicle reports an unspecified amount believed to be running into hundreds of thousands of dollars was allegedly transferred to Tsholotsho RDC from the Zimbabwe Manpower Development Fund (Zimdef) and has also gone missing. It is also alleged that there was rampant corruption regarding allocation of major tenders by the local authority.

  1. That sum of money is long gone, we should be concentrating on means to revive the falling economy not hunting down these people

  2. Corruption should be curbed at all costs, what was the port of call of those funds, its tressable and what is fun is even if a commision of inquiry is formed ,you will find those who must be investigated being appointed in that commision
