Corrupt NSSA Boss ‘Arthur Manase’ Quits High Profile Job!

Nssa's former head resigned in the face of 30 serious corruption allegations!

Harare | Arthur Manase, the National Social Security Authority (Nssa) general manager (GM), who was suspended last year over graft charges, has resigned, according to reports.

Manase, who presided over an estimated US$1.2 billion in pension fund assets, was suspended in July last year as the government conducted an investigation into claims of corporate governance failings, mismanagement, and corruption at the asset manager.

In an acting capacity, he was succeeded by Charles Shava, Nssa’s director of occupational safety and health.

On Wednesday of this week, Manase declined to comment, sending the Independent to the Nssa board.

Shava referred questions to chairperson Emmanuel Fundira.

“I don’t have any information about the GM but the chairman knows exactly what is happening,” Shava said.

“I can only talk about anything below the level of a GM. Anything above that I cannot comment because he is my boss. I cannot start talking about the affairs of my boss. It does not work that way.”

Fundira said: “The person who is telling you that (the GM) is fired must give you the full details.”

But it was later established that he had resigned.

On reports that some senior executives had also left, he said: “When you are talking about senior executives in an organisation, you talk about separation.

But in an interview with the Independent in July, Fundira said he will be acting on officials implicated in looting in the new forensic audit.

“We want to clear all the mess which has been existing at Nssa,” Fundira, who was appointed in May, said at the time.

“There have been correct and serious observations made in the audit and we are going to follow that as a bible and make sure that people are accountable for their transgressions.”
