Yes, we have arrested 10 Zimra officials who were allegedly involved in the smuggling of vehicles and they will soon appear in court. The operation targeting to recover smuggled vehicles is an ongoing exercise and we will not rest until all who are involved are brought to book.
ZACC and Zimra have since started to recover some of the vehicles which entered in the country illegally. We expect to recover more. The nation has lost thousands (of dollars) in revenue in this scam and we need to recover that money.
The operation has managed to recover 102 cars so far.
