Four ZIMRA supervisors are also implicated in the smuggling scam and one of them has since been suspended from work.

There are three companies which were contracted by ZIMRA to clear vehicles and goods which are also implicated in the scam and their clearing agents have been arrested.

Recently, The Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission and the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) impounded 102 vehicles believed to have been smuggled into the country by car dealers in and around the city.
