Mnangagwa's Rule Battered by Corruption Scandals

Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa's Special Anti-Corruption Unit (SACU) is an illegal entity, which unnecessarily duplicates roles of the prosecuting authority, Transparency International Zimbabwe has said. Mnangagwa established the unit in May 2018, to improve efficiency in the fight against all forms of graft and to strengthen the effectiveness of national mechanisms to combat corruption. Meanwhile, foreign direct investment remains extremely low and local businesses continue to close in the face of a confidence deficit. Corruption remains rampant, with little commitment to deal with the perpetrators and recover stolen funds.
