The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission says it will be targetting officials at the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority, who it accuses of fuelling corruption at the country’s borders. AfricaNews reports that the Zacc has lately been targeting cross-border transporters to stop rampant smuggling of goods and human trafficking, which has angered transport operators, who feel they have been unfairly treated. But the anti-graft body said the country’s borders have become enablers of high-level criminal activity, which it says is costing the country about US$1,8 billion per annum in illicit financial flows.
