Zimbabwe’s Mnangagwa offers three-month
amnesty for return of externalized funds

HARARE, (Xinhua) -- Zimbabwe’s new president Emmerson Mnangagwa on Tuesday gave a three-month amnesty for individuals and corporate to bring back funds they externalized or face arrest.

Mnangagwa said the military intervention which led to the resignation of former president Robert Mugabe last week had helped to uncover cases where huge sums of money and other assets were illegally externalized by individuals and corporates.

He said such malpractices constitute a serious economic crime against the people of Zimbabwe.

“As a first step towards the recovery of the illegally externalized funds and assets, the Government of Zimbabwe is gazetting a three-month moratorium within which those involved in the malpractice can bring back the funds and assets, with no question being asked or charges preferred against them,” the president said in a statement.

The amnesty runs from Dec. 1 to end of February 2018.

Mnangagwa said affected persons who wish to comply with the directive should liaise with the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe for necessary facilitation and accounting.

Upon the expiry of the three month window, Mnangagwa said government would proceed to effect arrests of all those who would not have complied with the directive.

Zimbabwe is currently facing a cash crunch as the main transacting currency, the U.S. dollar and the surrogate bond notes remain in short supply.

Monetary authorities blame the cash shortages to low imports and externalization.
