ZIMBABWE Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) has arrested Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) officers and agents stationed at Beitbridge border post on allegations of smuggling vehicles into the country.

Four ZIMRA supervisors are also implicated in the smuggling scam and one of them has since been suspended from work.

There are three companies which were contracted by ZIMRA to clear vehicles and goods which are also implicated in the scam and their clearing agents have been arrested.

Recently, The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission and the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) impounded 102 vehicles believed to have been smuggled into the country by car dealers in and around the city.

This comes after the anti-graft body and the authority launched a crackdown targeting suspected smuggled vehicles which were mostly being sold at car sales.

The 102 cars were recovered in car sales operating in Harare, with the operation to spread to other towns and cities.

    Surprise surprise! Everyone knows this has been going on for years. Pasi was one of the main culprits. Obviously some zanoid has not been paid their “cut” and decided to rat on others involved.

    And as usual there will be a sham attempt to show that the wrongdoers have been brought to book but nobody will receive any punishment. Same ol’ same ol’.

    This is stale news.

    ZIMRA, their Predecessors, Clearing Companies, etc, etc, particularly those based close to The Republic Of South Africa or Botswana, have been doing such crimes since 1980……..nearly forty (40) years.

    That’s “Independence” in the true Zimbabwean Tradition.

    And you wondered why Zimbabwe is doomed to fail, fail and fail again.

      But they did not get away with the smuggling until 1986 when top customs officers, Harper and Austin, were put int Chikurubi on trumped up charges giving the crooks a free run
