Four police officers have reportedly been arrested over a major City of Harare tender scam by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC).
ZimTrending has learned from Zimmorning post-Editor Elias Mambo that ZACC arrested Chief magistrate Munamato Mutevedzi, Clemence Chimbari (Regional Prosecutor at Harare Magistrates’ Courts), police investigators Claudious Majonga, Aaron Karuru, Naboth Nyachega and Obey Moyo.
The arrest of the 6 persons follows the arrest of the 14 top officials at Harare City Council.
The suspects are accused of allegedly parcelling out stands to illegitimate beneficiaries thereby defrauding the city council of at least US$1 million.
The accused persons are said to have acted in common purpose and unlawfully identified open spaces in Kuwadzana suburb, created fictitious pay schemes and sundry accounts without following due process.
They would, in turn, sell the stands to home seekers under misrepresentation that the stands were officially approved by HCC.
