Former Tourism Minister, Priscah Mupfumira is said to have paid back NSSA funds which therefore means that she did not prejudice the authority as earlier reported.
An unidentified source who claimed Mupfumira had paid back the money, is accusing the Zimbabwe Anti Corruption Corruption of arresting her without making investigations first. The source said:
If ZACC does not know that Mupfumira had Cabinet authority allowing her ministry to get that loan and, more than that, the loan was repaid four years ago resulting in no prejudice to NSSA or pensioners, it begs the question if any investigation was conducted.

You keep hearing that she (Mupfumira) stole US$95 million but when you look at the specifics, there is no indication that she took any money; instead, the allegation is that she encouraged bad investments, a point that is equally disputed.
Mupfumira who was recentpy granted bail is facing corruption charges after she allegedly abused her office as the minister of Labor and Social Welfare.
Her actions are said to have prejudiced the association about US$95 million. President Emmerson Mnangagwa dismissed Mupfumira from her ministerial post following her arrest.
