Zimbabwe Renews Its Partnership with Basel Institute on Governance to Fight Corruption

Zimbabwe Renews Its Partnership with Basel Institute on Governance to Fight Corruption

Story by Peter Chivhima

ZIMBABWE has renewed its partnership with the Switzerland-based Basel Institute on Governance International Centre for another three years to intensify efforts in the fight against corruption.

As part of the renewed agreement, Zimbabwe has signed a consultant agreement with the Basel Institute to train its law enforcement agents on financial investigations.

Prosecutor General, Justice Loice Matanda-Moyo, signed the agreement on behalf of the Zimbabwean government and called for more collaboration in the fight against corruption.

Speaking on the agreement, the Prosecutor General said, “We have signed an agreement with Basel Institute, and this agreement will enable the Basel Institute to train our officers from the ZRP NPA, ZACC, and ZIMRA on financial investigations and asset recovery.

‘We are also going to engage different countries and see how we can partner with them in the fight against corruption.”

The Basel Institute on Governance is an independent non-profit competence centre based in Switzerland, working worldwide to strengthen governance and counter corruption.

The renewed partnership comes at a time when the Second Republic of Zimbabwe is working tirelessly in the fight against corruption.

The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission revealed that it had recovered US$145 million worth of tainted assets, showing significant progress in the fight against corruption.

The agreement between Zimbabwe and the Basel Institute on Governance International Center will go a long way in enabling Zimbabwe to win the war against corruption.
