Zimbabwe’s Environment, Tourism and Hospitality Industry Minister Prisca Mupfumira who was arrested on July 25 over seven counts of criminal abuse of office including US$95 million from the state pension fund, is now going to face two fresh charges.
The Zimbabwe Anti-corruption Commission reported that Prisca Mupfumira, who happens to be a senior member of the ruling ZANU-PF party, was involved in fraud and money-laundering activities.
Michael Reza, who is representing the state along with Sharon Fero had submitted the evidence against Mupfumira. As per the report submitted by Michael Reza, Mupfumira instructed NSSA to deposit money into her CBZ personal account amounting to US$9 182. While opposing bail for Mupfumira at the High Court, Michael Reza mentioned that she holds a personal account 04422647590013 at CBZ, and it was used to deposit illegal money. He further added, the money came from companies applicant had directed NSSA to deal with.
However, Mupfumira denies the allegations and says that the case is a civil one between Nssa and Metbank.
