Covid-19 procurement scandal: Auditor General dispatches probe teams

The Auditor General Mildred Chiri on Wednesday dispatched probe
teams across all the 10 provinces to scrutinise the transparency (or lack thereof) of Covid-19 PPE procurement processes within government departments, Zim Morning Post has learnt.

This development follows damming findings by independent audit firms which revealed that there has been massive misappropriation of Covid-19 funds.

“Chiri is responding to reports that there is massive overpricing, irregular tenders and cherry picking of suppliers in government PPE procurement process,” an insider said.

“As you know Chiri is one of the few genuine corruption busters in the country, she dispatched a team of auditors across the country,” revealed our source in the Ministry of Finance.

The audit follows abuse of Covid-19 PPE procurement processes by
high profile individuals.

The case that opened a can of worms is that of US$60 million Drax saga which implicated businessman Delish Nguwaya and claimed the scalp of former Health minister Obadiah Moyo who was fired by President Emmerson Mnangagwa over the scandal.

Procurement experts said the pre-existing deficiencies in the supply chain processes were amplified by the introduction of emergency procurement processes allowed for PPE.

This meant departmental heads would form fictional companies and supply goods since there was a waiver for tender.

As a result, poor quality products were supplied while overpricing
of masks, sanitisers and other sundries became the order of the day
