Mozambique’s anti-corruption authorities have initiated a trial of 28 officials who allegedly diverted $2.7million from the national fund for agriculture.

Setina Titosse, kingpin of the alleged fraud, is the former managing director of the Agriculture Development Fund. She has been accused of involvement in approving fictitious agriculture projects. 

Most did not exist or were partly implemented and the money was later allegedly transferred to her personal bank account.

The defendants are facing charges including graft, money laundering and embezzlement.
