ZACC Investigates Grace Mugabe’s Land Deals

Former First Lady Grace Mugabe and a group of her associates are being investigated by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) over the sale of State land in Borrowdale.

According to reports, Grace Mugabe and her associates have come under investigation from anti-corruption authorities after it emerged that they grabbed residential stands worth US$10 million without paying from an upmarket development on State land in Borrowdale.

This development comes after, Arosume Property Development (Pvt) Limited who were appointed as developers for the land on Carrick Creagh Estate allocated to Sally Mugabe Housing Co-operative in 2005 lodged complaints with the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission and the Special Anti-Corruption Unit in the President’s Office.

Arosume filed a complainant with ZACC and listed Former First Lady and Former Local Government, Public Works, and Urban Development Minister Ignatius Chombo as the first respondents.

According to The Chronicle, the property development company is accusing Grace Mugabe and Ignatius Chombo of using undue influence to grab land from its original beneficiaries and transferring the properties into companies and individual names without paying for them.

It alleges that the former First Lady transferred to companies under the directorship of two of her children, Bona and Robert Mugabe Jnr, seven stands totaling just under 10,2ha.

Chombo is also alleged to have grabbed land worth almost US$1 million with three stands totaling 2,2ha allocated to three firms including Comverol Enterprises and Cavford Trading.

Meanwhile, the Zacc spokesperson, Commissioner John Makamure said the commission would investigate all reported cases of corruption without fear or favor, including the Carrick Creagh Estate.

“We are dealing with all suspected cases of corruption that have either been reported to us, that have appeared in the media or even on social media. We are determined to allow the law to take its course,” he said.
