Zimra to go ahead with lie detectors on workers

The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) will proceed with polygraph testing of all its employees despite protests from the workers’ representatives.

The polygraph tests had been suspended indefinitely but responses Zimra director of legal and corporate services, Ms Florence Jambwa, said polygraph testing was one of the numerous initiatives being used to fight corruption. Said Jambwa:

Zimra has zero tolerance to corruption and has put in place numerous measures to curb the scourge, such as vetting of potential employees, anti-corruption hotlines, asset declarations and lifestyle audits. These measures have resulted in some Zimra officers being dismissed in accordance with the Authority’s Code of Conduct for engaging in corrupt activities. Polygraph testing will thus, complement these measures. Fighting corruption is a common goal, which is shared by all members of the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority. To this end, everyone within Zimra is eager to ensure that corruption is eradicated and will welcome implementation of strategies to fight corruption, such as polygraph testing.

She also revealed that the lie detector tests would be done by an independent service provider and will include management.
