A catalogue of corruption


The Anti-Corruption Trust of Southern Africa has released a catalogue of corruption cases in Zimbabwe dating back to the 1980s, which is essentially to remind people that they do not forget bad leadership examples for accountability, transparency and integrity in Zimbabwe.

Though, it is about old cases, the document serves as a good reference material to reflect on. It looks, peripherally at the following corruption cases:

  • The War Victims Compensation Fund
  • Constituency Development Fund
  • Diamonds
  • Wealth accumulation
  • VIP Housing
  • National Oil Company
  • Zimbabwe Iron and Steel Company
  • Kondozi Estate
  • Willowvale
  • Zimbabwe United Passenger Company
  • Fertiliser
  • Judiciary
  • Harare Airport
  • Christopher Mushowe and the University of Zimbabwe.

The report, however, ignores one of the biggest corruption scandals in the country’s history, the Paweni Scandal, and another food scandal the Grain marketing Board Scandal of 1992 when the country imported tonnes of food that was not even suitable for animal consumption.
