Senior Zimra official suspended for failing to investigate colleagues
A Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) official Nhlanhla Ndlovu was suspended for allegedly failing to carry out a lifestyle audit on managers identified as S Mapfeka and J Matare. The two were accused of receiving cars and cash to conceal a high-profile smuggling case involving top officials, among them former commissioner-general Gershem Pasi.
Part of Ndlovu’s suspension letter reads:
Between February and May this year, you were tasked by the acting director for loss control to investigate allegations of corruption levelled against two Zimra managers. It was alleged the two managers had each received cash and a vehicle being a Toyota Hilux from former loss control manager, Charlton Chihuri.
The letter was signed by Zimra technical department head, only identified as C Chiyangwa.
