Zimbabwe’s president says $591m in state funds have been returned during an amnesty on stolen state funds, but it’s less than half what he had hoped and Zimbabweans don’t expect senior officials to be prosecuted.
Nearly four months after he was sworn in as Zimbabwe’s new president, Emmerson Mnangagwa, says significant progress has been made in reversing the endemic corruption under Robert Mugabe’s rule. His government set up a 90-day amnesty to return stolen assets or face prosecution.
But critics say more needs to be done to make sure the recovered money benefits ordinary people.

The list generated debate and speculation. Here is some Zimbabweans online reacted to the looter’s list
Let me get the ball rolling. Company 497 is owned by Mary Chiwenga https://twitter.com/ZimMediaReview/status/975671915007434752 …
The externalization list reminds me of Eddison Zvobgo’s saying that jail is a place where the big thieves keep the petty and small thieves.
As Simon Chimbetu once said: Pane Asipo.
ED’s externalisation list is out and it is pretty hectic
Check out the full list of companies and individuals the government says have not heeded the call to return money to Zimbabwe
The funds externalisation list by @edmnangagwa is not exhaustive. It’s also interesting to note that most of the companies are owned by Zanupf people via a proxy.
You gotta give it to Zanu PF’s Elias Musakwa, hiding $9million
ZanuPF has never been good for us. VOTE WISELY.
Even media companies on the list of externalisers
I dont see anyone on this list feeling ashamed. Much ado about nothing me think. https://twitter.com/kudzie_sharara/status/975659123768520704 …
QN to ED: Biti said there is no legal instrument to prosecute Externalisers?
