Some of the Zimbabweans named include top executives at Innscor Africa, Zinona Koudounaris and Michael Fowler; Zimplats chief executive officer, Alex Mhembere; Sable Chemicals boss, Jackson Murehwa and others.

There are many Zimbabwean names in the Panama Papers who were allegedly assisted by a Panamanian law firm, Mossack Fonseca, to set up offshore accounts in the British Virgin Islands.

The documents which belong to Mossack Fonseca were leaked by an anonymous source to a leading German newspaper, Suddeutsche Zeitung, which shared them with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).

ICIJ organized the global collaboration being participated by VOA Zimbabwe Service and other news organizations.

Some of the Zimbabweans named include top executives at Innscor Africa, Zinona Koudounaris and Michael Fowler; Zimplats chief executive officer, Alex Mhembere; Sable Chemicals boss, Jackson Murehwa; Harare businessman Victor Robinson Gapare and others.

Studio 7 tried in vain to get a reaction from the named executives.

By publishing this list, we (Studio 7) do not imply that the people named broke the law, or to suggest any wrongdoing on their part. We publish the names since the Panama Papers have become an issue of public interest.
