ZACC Goes After Pokello, Unearth’s Dubai Property
Zimbabwean socialite and businesswoman Pokello Nare is reported to have found herself in the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC)’s crosshairs over a property she allegedly acquired in Dubai.
The entrepreneur who owns an upmarket boutique at Sam Levy’s Village and keeps her cards close to her chest is alleged to have exploited her proximity to stepfather and former finance minister Ignatius Chombo and benefited from his illicit dealings.
The anti-graft body recently revealed that vast amounts of wealth were siphoned outside the country and the entrepreneur has been hauled onto the list of the alleged culprits. An insider at ZACC divulged the details.
‘Yes, Pokello is on the list for a property she bought in Dubai. We have since instituted investigations, and we want to make sure we do not commit an error at law, hence we are being thorough,’ said the source.
This comes a week after ZACC chairperson Justice Loice Matanda Moyo told state media that they discovered US$7 billion in cash and properties stashed outside the country by former and current senior Government officials and captains of industry.
Informally, we have now identified over US$7 billion worth of property and cash all over the world which was siphoned by our former leaders, current leaders, private sector and individuals. So this information we only got informally; so now we have to formalise the process so that we start the processes of repatriating the monies back home.
This also comes after the former Big Brother Africa contestant sent tongues wagging late last year after buying a Range Rover Luxury SUV, 2019 edition, which is estimated to cost over US$ 100 000.
Social media users were left wondering who bankrolled the luxurious car with some alleging that it had been bought for her by her ‘mystery’ lover.
