Zimbabwe Anti Corruption Commission (ZACC) has reportedly opened an investigation into National Railways Of Zimbabwe following reports that there might be some procurement irregularities at NRZ, The Sunday News reports.
The development was confirmed by ZACC Spokesperson Commissioner John Makamure who said:
Although I cannot give you all the details for now, to avoid jeopardising our investigations I can only confirm that our team is looking into the procurement processes at NRZ which are said to be flawed.
I must emphasise that as a commission we will not rest until we weed out all the corruption in the country because it goes on to grossly affect our economy in both the short and the long term, therefore the public should not hesitate to approach our offices to whistle blow on any corruption activities.
National Railways of Zimbabwe has been going through turbulent times as its top management were let go and headlined for demanding hefty exit packages which include their current vehicles and $80 000 each.
Another National Railways of Zimbabwe director was last month suspended without benefits pending an investigation into the disappearance or lack of accountability into the disappearance of USD $23 million from the parastatal’s books.
