The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) has arrested former director of investment for the National Social Security Authority (NSSA), Brian Murewa, on allegations of fraud.

Murewa was apprehended during a raid at his residence in Borrowdale, Harare, and is expected to appear in court soon.

In a statement, the corruption watchdog said Murewa had been evading arrest for over a year.

“ZACC has arrested Brian Murewa, the former director of investment for the National Social Security Authority (NSSA), on allegations of fraud.

“Murewa, who had been on the run for over a year, was apprehended during a raid at his residence in Borrowdale, Harare. He will appear in court soon.”

Murewa is alleged to have misrepresented that the price of a guest house purchased by NSSA in Kariba cost US$240 000 when, in fact, the purchase price for the property was US$215 000.

He allegedly converted the US$25 000 balance to his personal use.

He will appear at Harare Magistrates’ Court on Thursday.
