Former first lady Grace Mugabe is facing allegations of financial mismanagement after the Zanu-PF Women’s League is reported to have called for a forensic audit into all-party projects that the former first lady was involved in. This comes after concerns that Grace was not accounting for party funds that she received on behalf of Zanu-PF from numerous donors.
Sources who spoke to Khuluma Africa said:
Grace had introduced various multi-million dollar projects whose value cannot be ascertained because of poor corporate governance issues. Millions of dollars were sunk into projects that are not viable leaving room for financial abuses.
…Noone was allowed to question how the funds were being used.
The good wishers were donating to Zanu PF but she made sure that all the money was received and kept by herself. The women’ s league secretary for finance was reduced to a spectator as she had no role to play in deciding how the funds were to be used.
The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) is already investigating how Grace Mugabe received her PhD from the University of Zimbabwe in 2014 after lecturers at the institution disowned the degree. The anti-graft body has also said that Grace can be arrested because the immunity that was granted to her husband former president Robert Mugabe does not extend to her and the rest of the family. Grace is also being investigated by ZACC for corruption-related crimes.
