By A Correspondent- The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission is pushing for changes in legislation that would allow it to keep 15% of crime proceeds that it recovers.

This comes after Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube said that ZACC was under-resourced.

ZACC spokesperson John Makamure said that the institution had made the proposal in an Anti-Corruption Commission Lay Bill that was submitted to the AG’s office this year.

He said that the commission was hiring more skilled staff who in turn needed to be paid.

He also said that ZACC has more than 40 applications regarding asset forfeiture involving US$100 mln worth of assets that it has seized since July 2019.-FinGaz
