127Views
Nine buses have been impounded by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) in the on-going anti-smuggling operation.
The exercise was launched on 14 April 2022 following several credible reports by whistleblowers of rampant smuggling activities by some cross-border bus crews.
Some of the smuggled goods found on the buses include an assortment of alcoholic drinks, blankets, bags containing new clothes, shoes, washing powder and energy drinks worth hundreds of thousands of United States of Dollars.
The bus crews and passengers failed to produce ZIMRA declaration forms.
The contraband was found in the following buses:
• MB Transport (AFJ 0588, trailer ABS 1582) driven by Revai Kazangarare
• Urban Connect (AEU 7344)
• Bless IT UP Motors (AFQ2435)
• Pangolin Transport (ACE 2551, trailer AAS 6476)
• DRD Luxury Coaches (FF94YT GP, trailer JY94PK GP)
• MCB Transporter (AFJ 0588)
• Four Lions (ACE 4735, trailer ACQ9725)
• Empire Tours (APJ 5191, trailer AEZ6969)
• Trip Trans (AEZ 6383, trailer AEZ 3967)
Investigations are still in progress.
ZACC would like to thank whistleblowers for their continued support in exposing corruption and urge Parliament and Ministry of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs to expedite the completion of the Public Interest Disclosure (Protection of Whistleblowers) Bill, 2022 whose principles were approved by Cabinet recently.
