The NPA is going after a ZIMRA employee Desberia Mutara whose wealth doesn’t match her total earnings for the time she has been employed at the revenue authority and reportedly can’t explain her source of income that made her amass such wealth, New Zimbabwe reports.
The Prosecutor General has already approached the high court for civil forfeiture of her wealth. According to the publication NPA’ Tapiwa Kasema said:
Mutara only declared a stand valued at US$16 000 and a car valued at US$10 000 yet she had acquired more assets.
Investigations allegedly established that Mutara, besides acquiring a stand, managed to build a house valued at US$75 000.
She also purportedly acquired two Toyota Corolla vehicles valued at US$8 000 yet her cumulative earnings from October 1 2014 to February 2019 was US$58 936.
Mutara reportedly refused to explain the source of her wealth and barred City of Harare people from entering her property to calculate the value of the property. This comes a few days after the president also urged members of his administration to declare their wealth.
