Mupfumira requests for NSSA audit report

By ZBC Reporter
FORMER Cabinet Minister, Prisca Mupfumira, has requested for documents to enable her to prepare adequately for her trial, among them, the National Social Security Authority (NSSA) financial audited report from the period between 2015 to 2018.
The trial of Mupfumira who is appearing before Acting Chief Magistrate Munamato Mutevedzi which was expected to kick off today was postponed to January 16 as she has made a request for the State to provide her with crucial documents for her defence.
Through the services of Advocate Thembinkosi Magwaliba, Mupfumira also demanded that the State furnish her with a written agreement between NSSA and Public Service Commission on a US$90 000 loan she allegedly authorised.
She also wrote a letter to the State demanding a Cabinet Minister’s handbook, which chronicles her expected duties and responsibilities during her tenure in office.
Mupfumira said the documents will help her in preparations for her trial in which she is jointly charged with the former secretary for Public Service, Labour and Social Welfare, Ngoni Masuka, on two counts of criminal abuse of office and another count of concealing a transaction from a principal.
