ZACC recovers US$25 million worth of assets

By John Nhandara

THE Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) has recovered assets worth more than US$25 million this year through its asset recovery and forfeiture unit.

This has been necessitated by the Second Republic’s ’s commitment towards fighting corruption through the granting of the organisation powers of arrest, powers of search and seizure to ensure they recover assets from ill-gotten wealth.

ZACC Spokesperson Commissioner John Makamure said the commission has now shifted its focus to high profile cases for investigation.

“We have exceed recovering assets worth US$25million. We are focusing on high profile cases. We are relying on Auditor General’s reports as well as whistleblowers,” he said.

Commissioner Makamure also highlighted pillars that are at the core of ZACC.

Recently, ZACC seized Gokwe Nembudziya Legislator Justice Mayor Wadyajena’s vehicles on allegations that they were acquired through proceeds from corruption involving COTTCO officials.

The matter is before the courts.
