Tanzania: Tanzania’s anti-graft body recovers 3.8 mln USD embezzled by cooperatives officials

Tanzania’s anti-corruption watchdog said on Saturday it has recovered 8.8 billion Tanzanian shillings (about 3.8 million U.S. dollars) that was embezzled by agricultural marketing cooperatives (AMCOS) across the country.

John Mbungo, the Acting Director General for the Prevention and Combating of Corruption Bureau (PCCB), told a news conference in the commercial capital Dar es Salaam that the money has been recovered between November 2019 and February 2020.

He said the recovered amount was part of 124 billion shillings that the Minister for Agriculture Japhet Haonga had tasked the anti-graft body to investigate following reports of misuse of the money by AMCOS officials.
