via Bulawayo24 NEWS | Mugabe’s administration cannot account for $3.5 billion govt funds 20 May 2015

The supervisor of government accounts and financial controls, the Comptroller and Auditor-General, has made a shocking revelation that President Robert Mugabe’s administration cannot account for $3.5 billion which was earmarked for civil servant’s salaries.

This was revealed in a report that was presented to the parliamentary portfolio committee on Public Accounts on Monday.

The report reflected various other anomalies and poor accounting practices by the ministry of Finance during the 2012/13 period.

    That’s a HELLUVA lot of Money in anybody’s terms, Eishhhhhh!!! But this is obviously not surprising.

    It would also come as no surprise if the Auditor general who has uncovered this ‘nonsense’ should go ‘missing’ or if he/she should be involved in an ‘accident’ in the near future. And it would definitely not be surprising if ZANU Pf responded by saying that these revelations come from someone with a “Political Agenda!!” No doubt, they will have a ridiculous reason that leaves no doubt as to the truth of the matter! Aluta Continua, but for how much longer!!

      True; we should obviously expect motor-mouth Moyo to issue a statement sooner than later proclaiming that the missing monies as mere figmentation being peddled by the west and regime change agents. Kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk.

      And obviously one Mphoko would also weigh in with a similar lecture – educating us on how we should guard our sovereignty by ignoring such western sponsored lies, blaa, blaaa, …….

    Who is going to be sacrificed for this gross abuse of office and such a nefarious act. There is no accountability in this government. They worst resources dragging the likes of Mangoma so that attention and energy is directed to innocent people yet the actual criminals are left scot free.It is so saddening that the people who claim to be the custodians of the most critical offices are tearing them apart. Where is the love for the people that you claim to love.They claim to be true revolutionaries. John Gerrassi(1969)said a true revolutionary is guided by strong feelings of love. It is impossible to think of an authentic revolutionary without this quality. I do not see any revolutionary in anyone who is cabinet from the head of state himself. At that age what are you doing when you should be resting. It will be rather unfortunate for the propaganda professor to comment defending this rote because he have displayed his highest degree of naiveity and cruelity.I would rather listen to a lay person than his misguided verbose. There is a difference between being learned and educated. We have a country that is being run by a mafia. What do you expect from people like chombo and Kasukuwere other than massive and careless destruction.Truly speaking where is the conscience. Pocketing 3.5 bn and you claim that the accounting system was in shumbles and you go at the peak of the mountain and claim that Zanu PF for the people. They would rather say Zanu PF for the suffering of the Zimbabweans. Where is the liberation that you claim to have brought. Its pathetic. We are closer to the end they should watch out.

    No one should be surprised. Zanu PF now thinks that they can do whatever they want, and no one will move a finger. They think they have the nation exactly where they want them….totally intimidated.

    Relax people. The $3.5 has only been temporarily used by politicians for their private enterprises to counter-act the cruel British and American Sanctions… but don’t worry, all the money will be paid back once Operation Zimasset takes off. But if Operation Zimasset doesn’t quite go very well the debt can just be transfered from the RBZ to ‘government’ and if all that goes wrong obviously ‘government’ can always just repay this staggering loss when the Mega deals with the Russians and Chinese bear fruit very soon, just now, one day. But for now the main priority is new Range Rovers for all the ministers.

    This should not surprise anyone. They see this as ‘free’ money.

    Does anyone, ANYONE, think Mugabe or any of ZANU-pf chefs care what is said or written, what discoveries are made? The money is gone, it is hidden in dark places. It is only they who have benefitted. It is only they who have a better life… all others live worse. The “revolution” was nothing more than a bank heist in disguise. So many were duped, and are now ashamed to admit it.
