Moyo, Kasukuwere bank accounts frozen

By Tendai Mugabe 

Government has frozen bank accounts of former Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development Minister Professor Jonathan Moyo and his former Local Government, Public Works and National Housing counterpart Mr Saviour Kasukuwere, pending investigations in their business activities.

The two were identified as members of the G40 cabal that had surrounded former President, Cde Robert Mugabe, taking advantage of his advanced age to engage in criminal activities.

The pair skipped the country’s borders when the Zimbabwe Defence Forces launched Operation Restore Legacy and their whereabouts are still unknown.

Home Affairs and Culture Minister Dr Obert Mpofu confirmed the freezing of the bank accounts last night, but referred further questions to the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe.

“Yes, the Reserve Bank has put adverts regarding to that and you can contact them for more details,” he said.

In an advertisement to all financial institutions, the RBZ said: “You are directed to identify and immediately freeze all accounts in the name of the above named individuals and any accounts in which the said individuals are directors or have a known beneficial interest.

“You are further directed to submit, in writing, a written to the Unit, by no later than the 8th of December, 2017, listing and giving particulars (including balances) of all the accounts that you would have identified and frozen in terms of this directive. Where you have not identified any relevant account, you shall nevertheless submit nil return.

“The effect of the freeze is that, (except any inflows into the account, which shall be processed normally and immediately notified to the Unit) no other transaction shall be processed from a frozen account, until further the Unit directs otherwise.”

Efforts to get a comment from RBZ Governor Dr John Mangudya were fruitless last night as his mobile phone went unanswered. The Herald

  • I wonder if they kept money in the bank here in Zimbabwe

  • Good move but lets u forget that more people should join the bandwagon

  • it was long,long overdue so they must be dealt with decisively and pay for it ..if you are to sweep the house,the chief aim is to make it clean so clean all rooms starting with yours

  • Saka munoti ndiyo chete ma boora ndandi Aya vane ma foreign accounts

  • Good

  • For all their wrongs and sins it is surely unconstitutional to simply close an individual’s account without the legal due process being tested. The president of a country cannot jus wake up one day and simply pronounce the freezing of a citizen’s account unless we have really become the proverbial Banana republic. Let charges be put across these individuals , court processes be exhausted and then let the judges make the decisions.
