About a week ago transport minister Felix Mhona made an impromptu visit to the Central Vehicle Registry office and ordered a probe into the graft allegations raised against CVR staff.

Zacc spokesperson, Commissioner John Makamure confirmed that their officers are stationed at CVR.”The Zacc Compliance and System Review team is still on the ground doing the rapid compliance spot-checks at the CVR.

“The exercise is thorough in order to come up with viable recommendations that will improve efficiency at the department,” he added.

Asked if there has been anyone already under investigation, Mr Makamure said they were not in a position to release any information as their officers were still going over the exercise.

“We will not divulge that at the moment but will issue a statement on the findings and recommendations,” he said
