Experts say Zimbabwe requires expertise in forensic science for stakeholders in the justice delivery system to effectively investigate and prosecute white collar crimes.

Forensic investigations are a necessary component of effective justice delivery when dealing with complicated cases involving corruption or white collar crimes.

Anti corruption activist Dumisani Mthombeni says there is need to rope in forensic scientists to complement efforts by the Auditor General and the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission to effectively deal with such cases.

An expert in white collar crime Proctor Nyemba says the government must work with the private sector to fight more sophisticated crimes.

The Auditor General’s Report has been helping the government to have an insight into the financial transactions in various departments and ministries.

However, the inclusion of forensic scientists is viewed as the best way in preventing white collar and other related crimes.
