Zimbabweans doubt over Mnangagwa's corruption crackdown

Zimbabwe's president says $591m in state funds have been returned during an amnesty on stolen state funds, but it's less than half of what he had hoped and Zimbabweans don't expect senior officials to be prosecuted.

    Nearly four months after he was sworn in as Zimbabwe's new president, Emmerson Mnangagwa, says significant progress has been made in reversing the endemic corruption under Robert Mugabe's rule. His government set up a 90-day amnesty to return stolen assets or face prosecution.

    But critics say more needs to be done to make sure the recovered money benefits ordinary people.
