August 2015 - Gweru Commission.

Events

In May 2019, the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission, (ZACC) in collaboration with the Special Anti-Corruption Unit in the Office of the President and Cabinet, started investigations into allegations of corruption against former Gweru commissioners. The three commissioners, Chair Tsunga Mhangami, Mark Choga and Parenyi Chamunorwa, were appointed by Saviour Kasukuwere in August 2015 following the suspension of the city’s 18 councillors. The tenure of office of the commission ended 90 days after 14 August 2015 when they were appointed, but they remained in office until March 2016, with the local authority continuing to pay them allowances. In 2018, Gweru Residents and Ratepayers’ Association petitioned government to force the commissioners to reimburse the allowances paid after their tenure of office had expired. Reports hold that they were entitled to allowances of $525 each per week, but awarded themselves $1 300 each per week at AA rates, which were not approved by government. They prejudiced council of over $100 000. [1]
