Potentially Explosive Cases Of Fraud Uncovered By Land Baron Commission Of Inquiry- Report

The Commission Of Inquiry into the sale of state land will this week submit its findings on 6 out of 10 provinces to the president. The commission has reportedly reported all fraud cases to the police The Sunday Mail revealed.

Speaking to The Sunday Mail The  Commission Secretary Mrs Mabhiza said:

The commission is ready to present reports from six provinces to His Excellency, the President, next week (this week) after the Heroes and Defence Forces holidays

The reports will cover the commission’s work in Mashonaland East, Matabeleland South and North, Manicaland, Masvingo and Bulawayo metropolitan province. The reports will inform the President of the commission’s findings in terms of its terms of reference.

The exercise has been fairly challenging, having faced some resistance from some corrupt elements, particularly those with assumed political clout in the provinces.

Mrs Mabhiza also spoke about the resistance they were facing as they were doing their work:

The exercise has been fairly challenging, having faced some resistance from some corrupt elements, particularly those with assumed political clout in the provinces.

We were also charged with unearthing land barons and the flouting of urban development rules and regulations.

There is also the procedural aspect where we sought to establish whether the relevant laws for urban development were complied with. We have also discovered cases where there are reasonable grounds of fraud and we have reported these cases to the police

The Commission was set up by the president in February 2018 and in these 18 months has covered provinces like Bulawayo, Masvingo, Matebeleland, Manicaland and Mashonaland East provinces.

The ZRP Spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed that the commission and the ZRP are working together and he assured the public that if any arrests are made he will update the nation.
