JOHANNESBURG - Newly-inaugurated Zimbabwean President, Emmerson Mnangagwa has announced plans to gazette a 3-month prosecution moratorium to allow for the return of money and assets syphoned out of the country, no questions asked. 

Mnangagwa has embarked on a project called "Operation Restore Legacy" and is offering an amnesty period for those who are guilty of "externalising" huge amounts of money.

No charges will be brought against those who cooperate, but those who don&39;t face arrest and prosecution.
