Zimbabwe is losing at least US$1 billion (784.67 million pound) annually to corruption, with police and local government officials among the worst offenders, Transparency International said in a report on Tuesday.
Social media groups like #ThisFlag and #Tajamuka have cited corruption in President Robert Mugabe’s government and police roadblocks where money is taken from motorists as among the main reasons for protests that have rocked the southern African nation in the last few months.
Transparency International Zimbabwe (TIZ) said the police, local councils, the vehicle inspection department that issues driving licences and the education department were among the most corrupt institutions.
