By A Correspondent- The latest investigation on the Lands, Agriculture, Water and Rural Resettlement Ministry, has revealed that President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s allies are using the portfolio to loot the country’s resources.

The report’s initial findings suggest that the department has degenerated into a “haven of corruption activities”, fuelled by closely-knit syndicates with tentacles spreading beyond the country’s porous borders.

A document seen by the Zimbabwe Independent shows that the fresh investigation implicated top officials at the Agriculture ministry who were enriching themselves through corruption at the expense of key national projects.

“Reference is made to a memorandum from the deputy Director General-Operations of December 2020, wherein it was stated that information was received that the Ministry of Lands, Agriculture, Water and Rural Resettlement has become a haven of corruption activities,” a government investigation report reads.
