THE National Social Security Association (NSSA), which is the majority shareholder in the National Building Society (NBS), has welcomed the move by the Zimbabwe Anti- Corruption Commission (ZACC) to investigate the ZWL400 million Dzivarasekwa Housing Scandal.

Zacc, on Thursday last week, wrote to NBS requesting all documents with regards to the controversial project.

“The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) is investigating a possible case of criminal abuse of office by a public officer as defined in Section 174 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act Chapter 9;2 on the tendering process of the above-mentioned project,” wrote Zacc.

“This office is requesting the adjudication documents of the project and all the necessary correspondences and finding made in connection to the adjudication for the purpose of our investigations.”

Insiders said NSSA management raised a red-flag over the deal and demanded an internal audit of the proceedings.

Sources said there was a war of words between Nssa and NBS over interreference with Nssa demanding that an adjudication report was supposed to be handed to them.

Nssa representative told Zim Morning Post that NBS procurement initially recommended that the tender be awarded to Blainesworld, the lowest technically competitive bidder.

“However, a new criteria was added, post the evaluation stage. This saw Reegul, who was on 3rd place emerge as the new winner.

“Reegul’s financial offer was Zwl$405.35m, compared with Blainesworld’s ZWl$285.6m.

“This is the reason why Nssa had to institute n internal audit. NBS could have been prejudiced of close to ZWl$120 million,” said the representative.

The representative also said the new look Nssa has zero tolerance to corruption hence the reason why they called out for a probe in the first place.
“We called out ZACC to investigate corruption in the Dzivarasekwa Housing Scheme because we do have zero tolerance to corruption.”

The investigation comes at a time when the Acting NBS managing Director John Mapiye is currently on forced leave after the NBS board agreed to place him on leave in order to pave way for investigations.

According to documents seen by this publication the NBS adjudication committee recommended that the tender be awarded to Reegul who had scored the highest mark of 83.44% and had displayed the highest level of quality of units and capacity.

“These recommendations were forwarded to the Accounting Officer, the Acting Managing Director John Mapiye,” reads the document.

“The AO agreed with the recommendations as approved that these be forwarded to PRAZ for further evaluation and awarding . The submission to PRAZ was done on the 24th of March 2021.”
