Govt orders Zinara audit




Government has ordered a forensic audit on the operations of the Zimbabwe National Road Administration amid growing speculation that the road fund is being abused. Transport and Infrastructure Development Minister Joram Gumbo confirmed ordering the audit yesterday. This comes amid speculation that the road fund could have lost thousands of dollars to senior executives who occupied dual positions and reportedly withdrew mega benefits from the parastatal under unclear circumstances since 2014.

Minister Gumbo told The Herald that the audit seeks to have a holistic understanding on the operations of Zinara with a view to come up with a viable way forward. Said Minister Gumbo: “As a new Minister, I want to understand the operations (at Zinara). The audit is being done by the Comptroller Auditor General. I am new so I want to understand the organisation including staff, operations and everything else. So I have asked for a forensic audit there.”
