It’s a serving Cabinet Minister that has been arrested… it’s the first high-profile case… It’s important, symbolically… There’s talk that, finally, some head will start to roll…

Dianna Games, Chief Executive - Africa At Work

Zimbabwean Tourism Minister Prisca Mupfumira became the first casualty of the newly formed Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) on Friday when she was charged with corruption involving more than R1 billion.

Charges against Mupfumira are for her alleged abuse of state pension fund money which she oversaw as Labour Minister (2014 to 2018).

Zimbabwe’s state pension fund is often targeted for looting by politicians and public officials, despite this being the first-ever prosecution.

The new anti-corruption body is reportedly investigating 200 cases.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Dianna Games, Chief Executive at Africa At Work.

Games says it’s unusual to see Government heads roll in most of Africa, so this is a positive step.

She says that social media is rife with reports, so far denied, that Mugabe’s former mining minister is next.

Listen to the interview in the audio below.
