A Zimbabwe senior official Douglas Tapfuma has been arrested after being accused of importing vehicles and pretending they were for state use to avoid customs duty.
Douglas Tapfuma, who last year was responsible for running the president’s state residence, is expected to appear in court later on Wednesday.
Local media is reporting that Mr Tapfuma used letters from the president’s office to import duty-free vehicles for friends and relatives.
He becomes the second high-profile Government figure to be arrested by the newly-constituted Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC) after Tourism, Environment and Hospitality Industry Minister Prisca Mupfumira was arrested last Thursday.
Priscah Mupfumira pleaded not guilty after being charged with corruption linked to the disappearance of $94m (£77m) from the country’s pension fund when she was welfare minister.
