CORRUPTION watchdog, the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC), has arrested Chamunorwa Gombe, Munyaradzi Oshipeya and Silas Chimbiro on fraud and money laundering allegations.

In a statement on Wednesday, ZACC said the three had allegedly illegally obtained farming inputs from the Agricultural and Rural Development Authority (ARDA) Joint Venture through misrepresentation and sold the inputs.

“The three individuals are alleged to have fraudulently acquired farming inputs under the ARDA Joint Venture Programme by falsely claiming ownership of irrigated land in Hurungwe and Karoi.

“As a result of their misrepresentation, they received fertilisers, seeds, and chemicals, which they later sold,” said ZACC.

Gombe is also facing charges of money laundering as he is accused of using the proceeds from the crime to acquire properties.

The three are scheduled to appear at the Karoi Magistrates’ Court today for their initial remand.
